This exhibition is the second collaboration project of "Sendai PARCO 15th Anniversary x Non", following the "Ribbon Art" Tanabata decorations designed and supervised by Non herself and displayed in Sendai PARCO building for the "Sendai Tanabata Festival" in August.
The centerpiece of the exhibition is a new collaboration of traditional Tohoku crafts, "Kokeshi Lanterns" and "Akabeko", and Non's ribbon art.
The "Kokeshi Lanterns" are oversized, measuring approximately 180 cm in height and 45 cm in diameter. NON designs the lanterns, traditional craftsmen paint them, and NON puts ribbons on them.

Other exhibits include an installation using a large quantity of ribbons that appeared in the movie "Ribbon," a torso piece, and a work newly arranged for this solo exhibition from the "prototype: bright red child's room" presented at "ikuno art stay" in January 2023.
