Galleri Yamanashi opened in Stockholm’s old town, Gamla Stan, in 2014 with an inaugural exhibition of Issey Miyake’s work entitled ‘Magical Textile’.

The gallery’s mission is to keep traditional handicraft techniques alive through cultural exchange, and to support younger artists and makers by bringing their work to a wider audience through exhibitions, workshops and competitions. Our central location enables a wide, multi-national audience to discover these talented artists and their work.

As well as introducing Japanese artists to a European audience, we host exhibitions by a variety of Swedish and European artists and makers as well as Japanese artists who live and work in Europe.

This wonderful, historic space is available for rent for events and exhibitions.

Weaving Image and Sound

Isao Yamada x Ryota Fujiguchi
October 30 – November 7, 2021
opening hours: 13:00-18:00

This exhibition combines the works of two resonating Japanese artists in four-dimensional forms: haiku poems + collage works + 8mm films + sound installation.

Fujiguchi has been an indispensable sound designer and recording technician for Yamada’s films since Sturm und Drang (2014). Their discussions and creations lead to multi-faceted expressions across varying media: weaving images, words and sounds into a synthesised whole.

This exhibition is a representation of their encounters, mutual inspiration, never-ending talks and respectful friendship.

Stories from Skokloster

Exhibition of wood art by Achot Chiroian
13-18 November, 2021
Open 13:00-19:00

The exhibition of the wood artist Achot Chiroian is inspired by the nature of the Swedish peninsula Skokloster.

For his works Achot uses only the parts of the trees that have fallen down after the storms or have been cut by arborists. Some of the works are made from the 350 years old lime trees that grow in the park of the famous Skokloster castle. Achot always tries to preserve the original form of the wood as much as possible and enhance its natural beauty.
