"Karo & Piyobpt"

"Karo & Piyobpt" is a short animation work that was produced in late 1992 as part of the NHK TV program "Petit Clay" for a total of three episodes. A collage of photographs and drawings, mainly made of clay. It was filmed using a multi-plane method, and the depth and softness of the screen was expressed through camera focus, creating a mysterious visual experience that blended painting and reality. ("Puchi Clay" was the first television program in Japan to feature animation using clay, and was the forerunner of the subsequent "Puchi Puchi Anime" series.)

This series eliminates drama and depicts the gentleness of peaceful days. Small events and gestures convey warmth and sometimes bring laughter. There are no lines, but the story is told through onomatopoeia, movement, rhythm, and music. It is known as one of the best children's films in Yamamura's filmography, and continues to be shown around the world. It gained many fans and became a work that has been loved for many years.

31 years after its first release, a new series of "Karo & Piyobpt" has been rereased as a web comic in January 2024. To celebrate the 31st anniversary of the series and the start of a new series, we hold an exhibition featuring original drawings of old and new "KARO-PIYO".
