Upcoming Exhibition



This is official!

With the support of l’Association de Jumelage Rennes-Sendai ( and Fondation Franco-Japonaise Sasakawa (, 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.

Next month, in Rennes (France), I will present an exhibition of pictures and also do a talk to share my findings, as far as Japanese craftsmanship is concerned.
This is another opportunity for me to thank MORIUMIUS team for their kindness and support when I was there, as well as all stakeholders who helped me in this project.

Cheers to all! And see you soon!

Exhibition from October 22nd to November 02nd, 2019, at Maison Internationale de Rennes
