Kumano Kodō

The Kumano Kodō is a series of ancient pilgrimage routes of Japan. It is the path of the wisdom and patience of the old, and some trees are more than 800 years old.

In that space, a dancer wearing a yellow “wisdom of light” dress concentrates her soul and has a conversation connecting with “the pilgrim’s wisdom” in space and time.

By Fukuko Ando

In front of the mirror, I work with the wooden mannequin on which I directly sculpt the dress form by the fabric.The dress has 360 degrees awareness.

Ando’s work is based on a simple proposition : ” Each person has a body.
The body expresses a person’s story and history, the dress is a language the expresses that body , the human body and the dress are both founded on the same principle: constant, unbroken perception “
