A friend came to my room when I lived alone and told me that the blanket I had brought from my parent’s house was dated. The Rococo-style flower pattern, which I had never paid much attention to, suddenly became a source of embarrassment and a focus of attention, and I’ve used it in my work ever since. Flower pattern blankets, which were born in Japan around 1968, blended and coexisted with Japanese culture of the time, almost like a gradation, producing a sense of coveted Western luxury. This time, I will create a dream house based on the motif of Licca-chan’s home, expressing an aspirational lifestyle that changes with the times with a floral blanket that evokes the Western luxury that I long for.


Makoto Egashira

Egashira creates sculptures and installations using floral patterned blankets, which were originally popular in postwar Japan, as the main material for his works.
Major exhibitions include Roppongi Art Night 2017, Rokko Meets Art: Art Walk 2019, and BIWAKO Biennale 2022. In addition to exhibitions, he has appeared in the music video of artist YUKI’s My lovely ghost and GUCCI's short film Kaguya by Gucci through his artwork.
