Kataoka Byoubuten is building hand made traditional folding screens, like they have been made in Japan for centuries. While in the past, folding screens have been part of daily life, today people don’t have the need or the space for them in their home. While traditionally the screens have been hand-painted, this has become very expensive, which made hand painted screens very rare. We realised that when a screen is hand painted, it brings the whole beauty of this old craft to life. The screen is a fascinating medium for contemporary artists, since it is an object between two and three dimensions, that can be used on a wall as well as freestanding in a space. In order to illustrate and promote the potential of the folding screen as medium for contemporary art, Korean painter Chung Eun Mo has been invited to paint on this specially made screen. Chung’s paintings are architectural compositions in two dimensions that perfectly harmonise with the nature of the screen.
