We replaned for the full-scale solo exhibition of Machi Tawara, a poet who represents contemporary Japan in her work, with a title "Machi TAWARA: #Only One "Like", from “Salad Anniversary” to “the Sizes of the Future”, which was shown at the EDIT & ART Gallery in the Kadokawa Culture Museum in 2021. This second exhibition was held at the FUKUI MUSEUM OF LITERATURE to commemorate Ms. Tawara’s top award in the Tanka (Japanese short poem) world, the Chōkū Prize.

Approximately 300 Tanka carefully selected from 35 years of her career are exhibited in the three areas: "Salad Anniversary", the Corridor, and "the Sizes of the Future". The visitors can enjoy Ms. Tawara’s words and world view displayed and expanded on a large scale which is a new way of viewing them. In the area of the best-selling book, "Salad Anniversary", pink is the theme color. The large heart-shaped fixtures with 20 love poems, and postcards and letters sent to the family during school days are displayed in an extravagant manner. The Corridor area in the center of the venue leads visitors to follow the course of history. Her 100 poems representing the 30 years of the Heisei period are displayed on hanging acrylic boards. In "the Sizes of the Future" area, an image of Ishigaki Island, which is also a scenery imagined by Ms. Tawara, is projected, and visitors can see it through the house-shaped furniture with mirrors on all four sides. From the ceiling, 300 airvases printed with Tanka are hung, letting Tanka flutter in the wind. The existing glass showcases, dotted in a space, were utilized as the display furniture with graphics.

We aimed to create a space where the visitors can experience the world of her poems with a mass of materials and data and can encounter new words and poems by walking through the world of Ms. Tawara’s words deployed in the venue.
