This is the last month to visit the exhibition “Charlotte Perriand et le Japon”, in Musée D’Art Moderne Saint-Étienne Métropole. It shows the exchanges that Charlotte Perriand – the first French female designer – had had with the land of rising sun and vice versa.
Invited by the Japanese Ministry of Commerce, in 1940, after they had gotten into the war, Charlotte went to Japan and, walking around the country, had discovered artisanal techniques and artifacts. She took photographs by herself throughout her peregrinations and collected Tom Haar’s or others made by documentary photographers, in order to nourish her reflection on precise points: treatment of space, light and shade and others.
The visitants could know the works which were developed by Charlotte during this time. The exhibition will be in the museum until May 26th. Visit their site to know more information about dates and time.
