03 Jun Making-of the photo session of the exhibition Esencia II
The humanized craftsmanship of the project “Esencia, Japanese inspiration in Valencian craftsmanship” began in a notebook with notes and sketches of objects that looked for a material and a technique in which the hands were the craftsmen… and that identification with the nature and purity of the objects led us to use the human body as a canvas and support for them; bodies that interacted with the objects elevating the aesthetic concept and highlighting their purity.
Handbags made of natural fibres, glass chopsticks, breadcrumb button covers or bowls of edible sake made of chocolate, among other options. Objects that recreate the intense relationship and love for raw materials and craftsmanship of two cultures; Japanese and Spanish, as geographically distant as they coincide in materials and production processes. A project that commemorated the visit of the Keicho embassy and the universality of art and design. The mastery of Ana Yago and Eduardo Peris turned this idea into cult images.
