Karen Knorr @ White Conduit Project

January 18, 2019 - January 29, 2019

Once Only Only Once was made in Kyoto this year and exhibited in the Daitoku-ji complex in Obai-in temple in April 2018, as free standing Byobu screens made of cedar wood, mulberry, rice paper and silk, and combined with photographs printed on rice paper. These traditional screens were made by Heiando, in Kyoto  in collaboration with Karen Knorr.

 The titles of the photographs allude to Buddhist precepts of peace, harmony and the pursuit of happiness and to a 16th century teamaster Sen-no Rikyu. “Ichi-go ichi-e” describes a cultural concept of treasuring meetings with people. The term is often translated as “for this time only”, “never again”, or “one chance in a lifetime”. The term reminds people to cherish any gathering that they may take part in, citing the fact that many meetings in life are not repeated.
