SUMOAURA

Details

“SUMOAURA” was a contemporary art exhibition focusing on Japan’s national sport of sumo, a whole world of epic drama contained in a circle less than five meters across. With its roots in Shinto prayers for peace and good harvests, sumo has preserved to this day a style and tradition deeply engraved etched on Japanese spirit.
“SUMOAURA” was a chance for visitors to experience the beauty of sumo through contemporary art. The exhibition not only featured sumoinspired artworks and sculptures, but also large championship portraits otherwise only seen adorning the walls of sumo’s de facto home at Tokyo’s Ryogoku Kokugikan Arena. Also on display were video installations that provided new insights into the world of sumo.
