Creating clothes that transcend the notions of nationality and boundaries, based on the concept of “A Piece Of Cloth” ISSEY MIYAKE continues to explore new possibilities in its creation across diverse disciplines. In 2017, ISSEY MIYAKE opened a shop in Milan—its first base in Italy—delivering messages about the discovery and joy of making things through design.
From April 17th to 22nd, during the period of the Milano Salone 2018, the exhibition directed by Masahito Sato, “My First Me: Know yourself like never before” is being held at ISSEY MIYAKE / MILAN.
While his study focuses on film making, Sato actively works in a wide range of other disciplines. As his expressive activities explore “new representations of human beings”, he proposes that everyone could experience the unconsciousthat exists inside his/her consciousness. This experience, as for human recognition and senses, may well lead to the joy of discovering yourself anew in your day-to-day life, namely to become aware of something about yourself that you have never known before.
The exhibition is an iteration of ideas from Sato’s latest book “New Ways of Understanding”; it consists of interactive installations that make use of technology, including Sato’s latest work that induces “sensations that has never been experienced before”, in addition to a variety of film works.
Here at the exhibition people can experience Sato’s work and become aware of “My First Me” along with the joy of creation, which can be something that transcends nationality and race.
