ITOCHU Announces New Event at ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE "Tomo ni Ikiru" - Exhibition of Calligraphy of Shoko Kanazawa
July 24, 2013
ITOCHU will hold a new event starting Monday, November 11, 2013, titled “Tomo ni ikiru” (which means “Coexisting”), a special exhibition that brings together the works of the female calligrapher Shoko Kanazawa. Despite the difficulties of having Down Syndrome, Ms. Kanazawa’s calligraphy, created straight from the heart and infused with great love, exudes a warmth within its power that continues to captivate the viewer.
The Great East Japan Earthquake has resulted in a strengthened awareness both of the human connections that bind us together and the connection between humans and the environment. It is this kind of society that Ms. Kanazawa’s message, “Tomo ni ikiru”, addresses. This universal idea also resonates with the company mission of having a responsibility to ensure a prosperous future in which we transcend the boundaries of neighbors, regions, and countries to coexist with the world and our planet Earth.
