Catalogue Note

The Morino Project's central aim is to create life-saving forests, which function as seawalls along the northeastern coast of Japan that was devastatingly affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. By planting evergreen broadleaf trees that are indigenous to the area, such as Castanopsis, Machilus, Quercus, and other varieties, dense forests will grow over the coming years that will act as vital buffers against possible Tsunami attacks. One of the world's most renowned architects, Ando Tadao forms part of the Morino Project's advisory board and has supported the foundation since its inception. 

The present work is a bold and thought provoking collaboration between Ando and Hosokawa Morihiro, the former aristocratic Japanese Prime Minister, and will be sold to benefit the Morino Project. After retiring from the political world, Hosokawa became a well-known potter, and started this project soon after the Great East Japan Earthquake. The present work is accompanied by an original wooden box with the title "REVIVED" written by the artist and is comprised of many pieces of Hosokawa's pottery.
