Check out the article on Rennes-Sendai’s website to get to know a little bit more about the behind-the-scenes of our collaboration for “MINGEYE – dans l’œil de l’artisan” exhibition & conference (article in French) : http://www.rennes-sendai.fr/2019/10/derriere-la-creation-de-mingeye-dans-loeil-de-lartisan/
This is official!
With the support of l’Association de Jumelage Rennes-Sendai (http://www.rennes-sendai.fr/) and Fondation Franco-Japonaise Sasakawa (http://ffjs.org), The Dorayaki Project turns into MINGEYE – dans l’œil de l’artisan, an exhibition + conference to share a little bit of my research adventure in Japan.
Between March and May 2018, I took part in the artist-in-residence program at MORIUMIUS with The Dorayaki Project. It is an action-based research that questions the role of craftspeople in Japanese society.
Great moment tonight at Institut Français, attending a talk about the new exhibition held at Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum here in Tokyo. Among other things, I got to know more about the importance of nature represented in Chaumet jewelry and the different visions of body ornaments in both Japanese and French culture. Many thanks!
