This is a report of France Dubois’s solo exhibition “No Concept” which was held from May 3rd to May 6th at Studio Kura.
At Studio Kura Gallery, pictures were set on three walls creating three different atmospheres.
Hi! This is Ale.
Yesterday, a writer from Asahi Shimbun came all the way to Studio Kura to interview Belgian photographer currently in residence France Dubois. His article was printed in this morning’s edition of the newspaper (that’s fast!), and we were very happy that he wrote about France, her upcoming exhibition, and Studio Kura.
Please come to her opening party on May 3rd!
We are happy to announce a new exhibition from one of the artists in the Studio Kura residence program.
Belgian photographer France Dubois will show the results of her stay at Studio Kura. France is based in Brussels but travels all over the world taking pictures. She has worked in Japan before, having been invited last year to the Akiyoshidai Art Village.
At this exhibition, she will show many pictures taken during her stay at Itoshima. You can look forward to delicate and fresh pictures, not limited to a specific motif but portraying casual everyday scenes.
Below are some words from France herself.
No concept and formality.
Full freedom of thought and imagination to reveal the unexpected.
Poetry and intuition shape this photography work.
We would love to see you at the opening party.
