Nihonshu Girl

BY SUMIRE MATSUURA
@ VOL 26 ON SEP 02, 2017

From her work as a writer and illustrator, Sumire Matsuura published the book, “Tipsy walks around sake breweries by Nihonshu Girl,” visiting various breweries in Kansai. Her journey is still continuing under the name, Nihonshu Girl. The reason she became interested in Nihonshu was because of her work at a shrine for the God of Sake. While working as a miko at the shrine, she got to know about the history of sacred wine and realized how wonderful it was. Now she wants more people to know about this culture. Her life has become richer by Nihonshu, and here she shares her love and appreciation.

Calligraphy Culture

BY KAZUKI YAMANE
@ VOL 26 ON SEP 02, 2017

Kazuki Yamane has been practicing calligraphy since he was a child, and in university, he majored in classical calligraphy. After graduating, he went to Australia where he came into contact with various languages and cultures.
For Kazuki, as a Japanese, the language he uses -- kanji and hiragana -- are not just tools for living, but they fascinate us and are appreciated from in and outside of Japan. Here he shares the beauty that these characters hold, through studying their appearances and content. And in this age where we type more than write, he offers a performance in the hopes the audience will take more interest in writing through physical experience.

幼少より字を習い続け、大学で古典的な書道を専攻。卒業後、渡豪し、様々な言語や文化に触れる。
私日本人が使う言語である漢字と平仮名が、生活するための道具であるのにもかかわらず、なぜ芸術として国内外から評価され、私たちを魅了するのか。文字の持つ美しさを、外側と内側から考察し、皆さんに知っていただきたいと思います。そして、文字を書くことよりも打つことが多くなった現代で、文字に興味をもっと持ってもらうために、文字を身体で感じてもらうperformanceをしたいと考えています。

Headstanding

Today's "Presentation of the Day" will have you standing on your head and spitting nickels (or, maybe just the standing-on-your-head part).  Chris Kirkland runs an art-related online business (Art Web) here in Tokyo, but even more interesting are the gravity-defying poses that he tends to strike when he's out and about -- and we're talking out and about on a global level. You won't have to invert your body to view his presentation from PKN Tokyo Vol. 90, which is aptly titled "Headstanding", so have a look.

Confessions of a culture junkie: Pecha Kucha Maastricht makes the grade

  By Susan Schaefer  I’ll admit I’m a culture junkie who until June 20, 2009 found the culture seen in Maastricht, well – politely boring, lacking an edge. Plenty of highbrow art and culture but not much of what I call ‘smart brow’ – that place where edgy meets elite. I have a confession – I am a culture junkie with a string of arts and culture leadership in my pedigree: I am the founding publisher, editor and reporter of the South Street Star, the first arts and culture weekly newspaper to cover the hot and happenin’ SoHo scene in my hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, where I also founded the Club Bay-Root, an original act nightclub, edited of the first ‘What’s Happening’ art and culture listings pages for New York newspaper, the Aquarian Weekly, and founded of the first women’s poetry festival while fronting my own poetry troupe, the Star Bards (we had a fan following well before poetry had ‘slams’!). Later, as the chair of the public policy committee for the Greater Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce in Minnesota, I founded the first ever business task force to study the impact of the creative class on our city. I’ve lived in Maastricht for the past five years and have been concerned with the strength of the city’s bid for European Capital of Culture city in 2018. Ah, but then a friend took me to a Pecha Kucha night and Maastricht and its surrounding “Euroregion” area shone as a wholly new sphere in my celestial imagination. It’s not that Maastricht invented this night. Far from it. Pecha Kucha Night was born in Japan 2003 as a place for designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Pecha Kucha, Japanese for the sound of conversation, is a fast paced, entertaining and informative format now running in 210 cities world wide, allowing each presenter 20 images at 20 seconds each (totaling 6 minutes and 40 seconds) to present original thought, ideas, concepts, and the like. Some presenters are literally ‘pitching’ their wares (rather than finding a gallery or the like to showcase them) while others intend to shock, stimulate or entertain. No matter the goal, the design and pace of this evening truly arouses passion. The hosts, of Pecha Kucha Maastricht: Pierre Buijs, Martijn Kagenaar and Jean-Paul Toonen have put their individual spin on this international event by filming and streaming the video on their own website. The presence of a multi-media crew adds a dash of panache and credibility to the event. With the brass ring of capturing the honor of hosting Europe’s Capital of Culture in mind, Pecha Kucha Maastricht features the artists, designers, performers, thinkers and tinkers who defy the city’s more staid image. For me, it revealed an intriguing sub-cultural literati from the too often unseen Maastricht cultural scene. Bravo! To learn more about the Speakers from June 20th simply click onto their website . My personal favorites from June 20th were the soft spoken but deeply sincere Jeroen Vinken, Art upon Fabrics, Lonneke ten Hooven,Food Seduction, a culinary poet, and space cadet, William Willems, whose Flower Bombing stole the show. See for yourself why Maastricht may indeed come up roses for its cultural quest. by Susan SchaeferSchaefer Communications, LLC   Photo: Audience, Pecha Kucha Maastricht (Photo: courtesy of Bert Janssen Photography (Maastricht)

Sjors works primarily with metals, wood, and light -- and the results are often electrifying.
