Tsuchiyu is a small own near Fukushima city. Kokeshi (wooden doll) making is well known as a folk art. They are very beautiful.
The exhibition, Tsuchiyu Arafudo Art Annual 2013, was realized. (http://arafudo.net/en/) I could not find the reasons why this project was in Thuchiyu by the presented works, though a few works related directly to Tsuchiyu. Only I liked a part of an installation that the visitors can write something on the floor about their experience of that we get problem and overcome it. The idea comes from that Kokeshi (normally Daruma) gets up after falling down.
