Dovecot presents a new partnership with Japan House London and the Centre for Heritage Art & Textiles in Hong Kong to launch an innovative exhibition of works by critically acclaimed textile designer Sudō Reiko.

As Design Director of leading textile firm NUNO (布 -Japanese for fabric) for the past 30 years, Reiko is renowned for championing new methods of sustainable manufacturing alongside traditional Japanese craft traditions, working with unconventional materials and engineering techniques to push the boundaries of textile production. Making NUNO brings Reiko’s extraordinary work to Edinburgh for the first time and features five large-scale installations combining both NUNO textiles with art projections created by leading Tokyo-based technological designers Panoramatiks.

The exhibition will celebrate a variety of creative techniques from washi dyeing to chemical lace embroidery, and each installation is accompanied by drawings and sketches alongside raw materials and design prototypes to combine traditional Japanese aesthetics with the latest digital and synthetics technologies.

Set against the backdrop of Dovecot Studios, one of the world’s leading tapestry studios, Making NUNO brings the viewer closer to Reiko’s manufacturing processes through a unique combination of traditional processes, unconventional materials and modern projection in a unique juxtaposition of the traditional and the contemporary.
