Announcing Anne-Sophie Guillet’s Exhibition “Komorebi”

We are pleased to announce an exhibition Komorebi by Anne-Sophie Guillet on August 26 (Sat) and 27 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.

Anne-Sophie Guillet is a French photographer, born in Oxford, UK. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 2013 with an MFA in visual arts and photography in Belgium. She currently lives and works in Brussels, BE.

Her work has been shown in various places US, Belgium, Poland, Canada, Australia including Japan in Kobe at the Mt Rokko international photo Festival in 2016. More recently in April 2017, her series Komorebi was exhibited as a solo show in Brussels at the gallery La Part du Feu.

It is her second time at Studio Kura as she already came last summer to develop a new body of work combining photography and videos ( click here for her previous profile page and her exhibition page in 2016). They relate the discovery of a place beyond words, the experience of a new time-space to investigate and live. This work initiated during her stay is entitled Komorebi.

Here are some words from the artist herself.

At this specific moment of the year, all elements become part of our everyday life and rhythm our days. Humidity and heat invite nature to express itself and to spread within an insolent force, by making every attempt of resistance as derisory. Thus it is nature that dictates its rules, presenting itself as a secret to survey. Nature contains intrinsically the hope of an encounter within itself.

Anne-Sophie Guillet “Komorebi”
Date: August 26 (Saturday) and 27 (Sunday), 11:00 to 18:30, free entrance
* We will hold an exhibition opening party and an artist talk on 26th (Sat), starting at 16:30.

It is essential to her life and allows her to discover things on human beings, about herself and becomes an excuse to meet people. It is by pursuing the flow of her thoughts and by attempts to let it express itself that she continues her quest on the understanding of human being.

I applied to this residency with the idea of being far away from the cities. I wanted to be immersed in nature and Japanese culture to let myself get touched by every encounters. I noticed that Studio Kura was in a rural area close to rice fields and the sea which I felt were exactly the elements I needed to reconnect with. Immersed in nature, walking or biking helps to heal ourselves from the illness of urban civilization. Observe nature and its changes at different times of the day. Collect small natural elements. Feel the smell of the heat and the humidity on our skin, watch each small modification appear from the breeze on a leaf or on the surface of water. Feel the energy of its nature and culture. Be passionate by everything that passes by, therefore that manifest life. Walking and the link with nature is a mysterious relationship”
