"RELEASE" ~ Akane Teshigahara Solo Exhibition for 20th Anniversary

Iemoto Akane’s solo exhibition “Release” was held at the Sogetsu Kaikan annex Atelier in November last year in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of her succession as Iemoto. Eleven works, ranging from large to small, were shown. The space was totally transformed from the usual where bamboo and steel materials are piled up, and became a grand spectacle which overwhelmed the viewers. All the photos of it must be overwhelming for you too.

The 102nd Sogetsu Annual Exhibition to Celebrate Iemoto's 20th Anniversary "Flowers and Me"

The Sogetsu Annual Exhibition was held for the first time in two years since its cancellation last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of 430 works over the nine periods were made expressing hope for the year 2022. Each ikebanist expressed their delight in flowers in their own work.
