ECHOES
English Collaboration Haiga/(Mt.) Ogura Environmental Support

HAILSTONE HAIKU CIRCLE EXHIBITION 25 Feb. to Mar. 2 at Kyoto International Community House, Keage (4 mins. walk from Tozai subway station of that name). Enquiries: 075 752 1187. Free admission. 11:00-19:00, but opening day 12:00-20:00 and closing day 11:00-18:00. There will be 36 haiga collaborations between artist and poet (54 contributors from 8 different countries). [N.B. Collaboration between poet and artist to produce a joint haiga is not a new thing. Precedents include collaborations between Basho and Kyoriku, Buson and Gekkei, Chiyoni and Shijoken, Issa and Hochu, Shiki and Shihota, Kyoshi and Seiho, Seisensui and Hosai.] One corner will show haiga and sculptural works created on and for Mt. Ogura (in association with the NPO, People Together for Mt. Ogura). The largest work is a group painting measuring 4m and inscribed with 6 English haiku. Our new book, Meltdown, will also be on view. Please come along!
It is hoped that a report, including a photo or two of the show, will appear at the Icebox in future.

  1. Hope to see a selection of the haiga on the Icebox.

    • Have just posted a slideshow to the Icebox. This includes not only quite a number of the haiga themselves, as requested, but also of the process of collecting the works and producing the show. Please enjoy.
