Mayumi’s work innovates the traditional Japanese art of bookbinding and papercut. She says: “Traditionally, paper has been used for various life ceremonies in Japanese culture, often used as a sacred tool for religious occasions. For me, working with paper is a way to inherit this idea and I have developed my approach to weave stories of the world by reflecting my inner one.”
