  • Book written in collaboration by OGATA Shinichiro, president of the SIMPLICITY group and the 'plant' artist KAWAMOTO Satoshi.

    We have brought together photographs from the exhibition made by Ogata and Kawamoto which was held in April 2016 at the YAKUMO SARYO restaurant in Tokyo on the theme of silence and movement.

    Take a look at the stimulating trajectory of “modern flowers” ​​by Ogata and Kawamoto which is neither ikebana nor flower arranging. Ogata attempts to express Japan in different ways through the concept of "creating contemporary Japanese culture".

    The word NENGE comes from“Flower Sermon” which tells the mysteries of the law with the heart and soul.

    The book is written in Japanese and English.
