[Nasal cavity of memories]
View the artworks (installations), stimulate your senses, and enjoy the world of your imagination. Go on an imaginary journey to trace the memories you have experienced in your life so far. If you were to appreciate five historical Japanese tapestries by smell, what smells would evoke your memories?
[Asleep in a paper wrapping]
It means while a time of waiting and sleep, until someone gets their hands on the exhibition documentation.
What does the catalog continue to dream about in the packaging? Wrapped in kraft paper and carrying their own scent, are they waiting for the time when they will be exposed to the open air, or do they want to continue sleeping still in their cozy warehouse? Every year, a new exhibition is held and a new catalogue is added.
What kind of colors will the catalog, with its memory of time that never fades away, make its presence felt in the exhibition space this summer? Let imagine and feel the smell of "hidden time".

The Library of Smell : Document Exhibition at Nara Prefectural Library and Information center
Exhibition schedule: October 22 - November 28,2019
Concept: Mika Shirasu and I did our workshop at the Library on 8th September in 2019. 15 participants selected books of very interesting smells in the library. And they analyzed smells as function evaluations and made own story of memory from books.
And Mika who is an olfactory researcher analyzed the most interesting smell of two books by The GCMS (Gas chromatograph mass Spectrometer) after our workshop.
So now, it began the interactive art exhibition from 22 October, even visitors can take all books by your hands, smelling, looking back on some memories from smell of book, thinking about own memories, and if some people enjoy the exhibition together, please talk each other how did you feel and talk about your memories of smell.
And I thought of " the Library is treasure place of smell world". If you are interested in more smell of books, please read any books by your sense of smell. It brings to open your new senses.
