About

Tokyo-born Motoko Maio has been reinventing the art of byobu (folding screens) since 1986. Using traditional Japanese materials and techniques - even reversible paper hinges - she creates lyrical variations on this ancient Japanese theme, resulting in contemporary works of "an art form with a thousand faces." Her folding screens for the festival will be made out of ancient kimonos.
