Hope Talk - Art of the Japanese Fan

 

日本紙扇

Among the most symbolic of Japanese art forms is the hand fan; strips of hinoki (Japanese cypress) connected by thread, covered with paper backing some of the most beautiful and elegant artwork. The paper fan has a long history, originating from China as the rigid oval fan and developed by Japanese artisans to its modern, folding form. Keita Yamamoto is the fourth-generation owner and craftsman of Matsuneya Fans in Tokyo’s Asakusa Bridge area. Joined by his colleagues and fellow artisans, Mr. Yamamoto will introduce the history and development of his art, as well as the broad variations of styles and uses. How many can you name?

在中國發明了造紙術後,紙張流傳至日本、歐洲等地,各地紙藝品相繼發明生產。扇子 也屬這龐大紙藝品中的一環,在中國自古以來具有搧風遮蔽之用,文人墨客在扇面題詩 作畫成為藝術品;而歐洲侍女用作身上的配件裝飾,與年輕男子調情的工具之一;在今 天的日本,扇子已屬於儀式及身份的象徵,在相撲、歌舞伎、茶道、棋藝可見其蹤跡。 位於東京淺草橋的松根屋,傳承至今已到了第四代當家山本慶大的手中,如今仍延襲創 店時,日本大正年間的優雅古風,但也嘗試融合現代設計元素,經營新品牌「松善堂」 開拓扇子的革新之路。2017台灣文化節邀請了山本慶大先生,與您一同欣賞日本的摺 扇及團扇優雅細緻的工藝之美,帶您回溯東京百年老店「松根屋」與扇子的故事。

Tales from Yangmingshan

故事陽明山

Louisa is a fourth year Geography major and Biology minor student at the University of British Columbia. She enjoys hiking and watching interior design shows in her free time. Like many students who are transitioning into life as an adult, Louisa is uncertain what she wants to pursue in the future. She does know, however, that having one job for her entire life will not be an option because she likes change. In 2017, she was accepted into the Taiwan Tech Trek program for people of Taiwanese descent aged 18 to 30 living abroad. Through this program, Louisa received the opportunity to intern at Yangmingshan National Park in Taiwan. For her Hope Talk this year, she will be sharing her internship experience; the things she has seen, heard, smelled, tasted, touched, and felt; the people she has met and the story she has become a part of. Discover the landscape of Yangmingshan National Park like you have never before
