Artist. Born in Ibaraki, Japan (1987).
Kubota’s practice revolves around memory and physical traces of the past, which although they have seemingly altered in form or even to have disappeared, are still sustained in the present time and space. Here, old and new, decay and growth, artifice and organic, human, animal and nature all share the same horizon of scattered parallel existences. She gravitates towards invisible yet certain matters; worn out teeth of a dead deer that once gorged the fruits of the land; the presence of the moon visible only as a reflection of sunlight; letters to someone who cannot be reached; or an evocative mirage of burning incense. Her historical and philosophical enquiries are materialised in diverse works from tracing paper, oil painting, photography, self-devised machines and installation to embellished minerals and porcelains.Read More →

Belgium jewelry duo WOUTERS & HENDRIX’s new collection has arrived to H.P.F, CHRISTOPHER in West Village, New York City. This season’s collection themed “The Collection Curators.” For them, “Collectors have existed since the dawn of human culture. It originates from the days when collecting was a practical matter of hunting for food to survive. Today, we collect for different reasons – intellectual, aesthetic and emotional satisfaction among them. For WOUTERS & HENDRIX, collecting is a labour of love and part of their true being. By bringing the treasures together that they have collected, new stories are made for us to discover. For this collection, WOUTERS & HENDRIX wanted to create a romantic punk feeling by bringing together contrasting elements in a unexpected way.”

New York, September 26th, 2017 – hpgrp GALLERY NEW YORK is pleased to announce the opening of “100 Years – SANYO 100 nen coat featuring Ricardo Gonzalez”. Brooklyn based artist Ricardo Gonzales shows the latest art works inspired by the concept of SANYO 100 nen coat. The opening reception with the live painting by the artists will be held on Friday, October 13th, 2017.
About 100 nen (100 years) coat
When SANYO SHOKAI reached its 70th anniversary in 2013, it adopted the tagline “TIMELESS WORK”, as a policy for becoming a company that consumers will empathize and resonate with, and come to love. It started work on making the “100nen coat” as a way of realizing that tagline. Starting in October, it gradually rolled the range out to department stores nationwide, and to Sanyo iStore, its own e-commerce site. The theme of the “100nen coat” is “a coat that will be loved for generations. It was developed in the “Sanyo” coat brand, which was the company’s starting point.
[Sanyo-goshi Original checked pattern]
We believed that Kabuki is the roots of the popular culture for Japanese entertainment arts, which is what led to our development of an original checked pattern that was inspired by the Okina-goshi pattern seen in Kabuki.
Okina-goshi a bold line means an old man and thin lines mean grandchildren. That’s the reason Sanyo has decided to make sanyo-goshi their concept ,100nen coat create to be loved over a long time through many generations.
As H.P.FRANCE BIJOUX celebrates its 15th anniversary this September, the brand is looking back and appreciating the countless customers and creators they have met or worked with over the years. To commemorate the brand’s anniversary and success in expanding to eight stores around the nation over the past 15th years, they have created a “15⋅8 = ∞” (infinity) theme. From September 21, stores will offer exclusive 15th anniversary products by Sweet pea and Lia Di Gregorio. A special gift will come with the purchase of these limited edition products.
