A Spring exhibition at Shun Art Gallery displaying Japanese artefacts, jewellery and clothing that tie in with BORO, an introspection of people's daily lifestyles. 

How did the ancient Japanese live? BOROボロ: When the fishermen and the peasants wore out their cloth, they would make patches on it. With the accumulation, it generally became very soft. Passing down by generations, it kept your warm and was frequently used during their workday or daily lives. This is the best trace of life and a precious legacy left by the ancestors in the era of resource shortage. 

Alongside the exhibition, there are silver pieces of jewellery by Shuji KUDO. If the silver is not frequently used in daily life, it will be discolored and blackened. Only it worn for a long time will the comfort and color will be maintained. However, nowadays humans may have so much, therefore they can't cherish an object simply like our ancients, or build up a unique emotional connection toward them or to other humans.
