nendo part of 'detour' moleskine exhibition

moleskin sketchbook by nendo

opening on october 16th at the MoMA design store tokyo is the detour exhibition by moleskine, a project dedicated to culture and creativity worldwide that features internationally recognized artists, architects, film directors, graphic designers, illustrators, and writers.

the travelling group show curated by raffaella guidobono, invites authors to compile and illustrate moleskine notebooks with experienced knowledge insider tips for adventurous nomads. all of them deliver an insight into the artists’ creative process.

amongst the notebooks some works contain extensive stories; others are turned into pieces of contemporary art and design.

for the exhibition nendo based their concept on the idea of place. by cutting the pages of the sketchbook to create a three-dimensional landscape, we wanted to show the way that sketches function in the space between two and three dimensions, and to present the sketchbook itself as a ‘place’ – nendo

the exhibition will be on view until november 4, 2009.
