Eskimo Boots
Eskimos are a group of indigenous peoples that primarily inhabited the far northern artic coastal regions and islands of the North American continent stretching from the eastern coast of Greenland west towards the Bering Strait and over to the eastern tip of Siberia. This included the Inuit that inhabited regions of Greenland and Canada, as well as the Inupiat whose territories spanned areas of Northern Alaska and coastal areas of the Bering Sea and the Yupik people.

Subsequence SALON is a pop-up gallery event curated by Subsequence magazine that displays a variety of arts and crafts from different eras both east and west that are also available for sale for a limited time.

This exhibition will focus on Hiroki Nakamura’s “My Archive” (Magazine House, 2018) featured in the most recent issue of Subsequence Magazine (volume 05) as a special appendix and take place inside「ref.03」a new exhibition space scheduled to open this fall within the store「ref.」a Subsequence Magazine stockist in Hiroshima.

“My Archive” was a serialization that appeared in POPEYE Magazine from 2012 to 2018, which featured archival objects and collectibles belonging to Creative Director Hiroki Nakamura. It introduced a variety of things that Nakamura discovered and was fascinated by, where he would talk about its charm by featuring one specific archival item in each issue that inspired him in his work creating products. The serial feature was also published as a special book by POPEYE BOOKS in 2018.

Trophies
The history of trophies dates to times before Christ and it is believed to be rooted in the custom of the victors displaying the spoils of war. In ancient Greece where competitions of sport originated, pots and other forms of ceramics were used as souvenirs for the winners, however from around the 17th century metal trophies began being awarded for horse racing competitions. Presently it is common to see a variety of styles including versions with columns, cups, and shields.

“To think about what attracted me to this thing and divulging that charm simply as I felt it.” To separate from any form of public opinion or any other individual opinions, it allowed me to express and discover the importance of thinking about what I like to call “value or worth for myself.” The efforts put forth to create this serialization later became the catalyst to publish Subsequence magazine.

This exhibition is a rare opportunity to display a variety of items from different eras, countries, and cultures that were introduced in the book. In addition to Subsequence magazine being available at the venue, the original “My Archive” book which is currently out of stock with the publisher will be available for sale. There are also a series of official merchandise pieces including a T-shirt and bag that were made especially for this event. We hope you will find the time to come and pay us a visit.

Vintage Pennants
Early pennants were typically made from felt cut outs and other non-woven fabrics and many also had ribbons on the end as remnants of their roots being attached to flagpoles. The 1950’s introduced new production methods and styles that included flocking, lame yarns, and piece processing that made gradient expressions possible. After the 1970’s there were versions that utilized photos as well.
