In the first room, "Scenes of Food" that remain in our memory are re-created, with art panels describing how to draw images that linger.
For example, how is the motion of Chihiro depicted when she is crying, her mouth full as she eats her rice ball?
Their hearts connect when Pazu and Sheeta share the same food.
The courage to face her challenges blooms in Chihiro as she eats the rice ball.
Concentrating fifteen years of exhibitions into one space, we will be delighted for you to feel the passion and dedication of our animators and creators.
Exhibition period: July 16, 2016 (Saturday) to May 14, 2017 (Sunday).
We started in 2001 with the "Spirited Away Exhibit", and our exhibitions have included 2005's "Heidi - Production Artists at Work Exhibit", 2009's "Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea - Making a Film with Pencils" exhibition and 2011's "The View from the Cat Bus - A Special Exhibition", introducing to our visitors our thoughts on how animation is created.
In the second room we present two life-size scenes of meals and food: Satsuki and Mei's kitchen in .Achieving dramatic effect and creating delicious-looking meals and characters enjoying them - their expressions and gestures - comes from the power of finely detailed drawing.Food that is still warm, that looks soft and tender, with the wonderful flavor showing on the faces of those eating them - these scenes of meals are appealing and charming.We show how that motion comes to life within the confines of only a few seconds on the screen.The motions of eating - tearing off a bite with the teeth, using chopsticks - don't escape observation.
