西陣織と琉球びんがたの出会い
 ~琉球びんがたの歴史と未来に向けた取組み~

2019.09.01 [SUN] - 07 [SAT]
西陣織会館

琉球王朝時代から、歴史の荒波を乗り越え現代まで受け継がれた琉球びんがた。
琉球びんがたの三宗家である城間家・知念家のびんがたを中心に、その歴史、受け継がれてきた技法、伝統を将来へ繋げる新たな取り組みを紹介します。

 

今回、初の日本開催となったICOMを記念し、京都を代表する伝統工芸品である西陣織と琉球びんがたの初の産地コラボレーションが実現。
琉球びんがた展示会では、西陣の爪掻本綴とびんがたの染め技法の実演をご覧頂けるほか、ICOM京都大会開催記念で特別公開されている、制作に7年の歳月を要した西陣爪掻本綴織の「風神雷神図」、一般公開されていない城間家、知念家秘蔵のびんがた作品を展示します。
同会館で毎日上演されているきものショーでは、本展示期間限りの『帯は西陣』・『着物はびんがた』で彩った特別きものショーを上演。また、9月6・7日に限り同ステージで琉球舞踊もお楽しみ頂けます。

 

琉球びんがたでは、今年4月に琉球びんがた普及伝承コンソーシアム(びんがたコンソ)を発足。『本物を日常に・本物をモダンに』のコンセプトの元、現代における工芸の活用方法に関する新たな取り組みをスタートさせています。本展示会では、伝統を革新に繋げるびんがたコンソの取組みも紹介します。

日本を代表する染織りの伝統工芸であり、共に王朝文化をルーツに持つ西陣織と琉球びんがたの共演に是非ご来場ください。

 

Ryukyu Bingata as a beautiful and unique textile in Okinawa
From the Ryukyu dynasty era, Bingata has been passed on generation to generation by overcoming the hardship of its history.
This exhibition introduces the history of Bingata, its unique techniques and a new initiative of rejuvenating the tradition with the cooperation of the Shiroma family and the Chinen family, the studios have continued since the Ryukyu dynasty era.

 

In commemoration of ICOM, the first ever collaboration between Nishijin textile, a traditional handcrafts representative of Kyoto, and Ryukyu Bingata becomes reality.
At the Ryukyu Bingata exhibition, you can see demonstrations of Nishijin’s weaving and Bingata’s dyeing techniques, as well as a special limited release of Nishijin’s Wind God and Thunder God Screens (“Fujin Raijin-zu”) at the commemoration of the ICOM Kyoto convention, which took 7 years to produce. Moreover, Bingata works that are not open to the public and that are heirlooms of both families are exhibited.
A special kimono show tailored by “Obi is Nishijin” and “Kimono is Bingata” will be performed for the duration of this exhibition (note: A kimono show is performed every day at the Nishijin Textile Center). You can also enjoy Ryukyu dance on the same stage on September 6th and 7th only.
