This set of prints includes three series, each cultivating the confusion between different temporalities and different spaces.
The first focuses on interior views, of intimate spaces: fragments of the house of the artist’s grandparents, such as needlework, drawer bottoms, skin surfaces alongside details of the apartment she was renting in Kyoto.
The second series explores spaces halfway between the inside and the outside: the private garden, as an extension of the intimate space. Views of his grandfather’s garden mingle with private gardens, visible from the quiet streets of Kyoto, where we can see picking, gardening tools, stagnant rainwater…
The last series proposes a journey in open public spaces, where extended laundry, a few flower pots or even a forgotten bottle are all traces of life that can be perceived around houses, in Étampes as in Kyoto.
The three parts are worked with a different color line for each. Light Teal, Flat Gold and Ivy. Some pages on an almost transparent Japanese IBO paper are slightly tinged with pink and blue, like veils. The book is bound in a glued square spine, with an offset jacket containing a spot varnish.
The book is accompanied by an analytical text in the form of a pair of tear-off bookmarks.
