For the next 6 months, I will be staying at the Villa Kujoyama, an artist in residency runs by the French Institute in Kyoto. I will do some extensive research on traditional crafts and on hair ornaments (kushis, kanzashis).
Villa Kujoyama is managed by the Institut français of Japan in association with the Institut français. It is one of the most prestigious French cultural institutions outside of France, along with Villa Medici in Rome and Casa de Velasquez in Madrid. It is also the only French residency for designers in Asia.
