Fragments of Japan

As textile designer and architect we conducted a 3 months research in Japan in 2023 about textile crafts, natural fibres and traditional carpentry. We connected to local artisans and explored the rich Japanese cultural history in crafts.

In April 2024 we will present the results of our research. It will be the opportunity to present a glimpse of the impressive world of Japanese craftsmanship and dream together about the future potential collaborations between Belgium and Japan.

Fragments of Japan is about craftsmanship, people and reflections.

This exhibition will be the first milestone in the creation of a Foundation with the aim to develop partnerships between Belgium & Japan in order to weave together arts & crafts, traditional & contemporary, handmade & technologies by curating spaces for creation & transmission in both our countries.
