Laura de Santillana | Moon. : From Kyoto to New York

In last autumn’s exhibition in Kyoto, Laura’s work was displayed together with kimonos and obi sashes in a traditional Japanese building, where it harmonized beautifully with the tatami matsand  painted folding screens.  

Despite being glass, the light that passes through it is softened, as if it had passed through shōji screens. 

Her aesthetics are more Japanese than the Japanese themselves, her works unassuming and subtle.

They allow us to realize that the moon seen from Venice and the moon seen from Kyoto are one and the same.
