Celebrating the 400th anniversary of Japan-Spain Interexchange, Junya Watanabe designed a special collection in collaboration with Loewe. We designed the exhibition space for the show at Spanish Embassy in Japan. Temporary walls are inserted, forming various angles in the gallery space of the Embassy. And photographic images of the Royal Palace of Spain are collaged onto them. We attempt to distort conventional perception of space by intentionally disaligning internal and external corners of the interior spaces in the photographs and the actual walls, and also by using wrong scales deliberately.
