Mori Arts Center Gallery (Roppongi)

Under the given theme “create your original Doraemon,” Suitou expressed the world of the movie, “Doraemon: Nobita and the Birth of Japan,” on a six-panel folding screen. In each two panels the Japanese character “楽 (delight)“ appears using the colors of the three characters from the movie, “Pega,” “Guri,” and “Dorako.” The signs of five constants of Confucianism, “仁 (jin = benevolence)・義 (gi=righteousness)・礼 (rei=propriety)・智 (chi=wisdom)・信 (shin=fidelity)” are also scattered in the works implying her own interpretation.
