"Latitia Jaqueton Exhibition"
Laetitia Jacquetton Solo Exhibition
Held from 11/20 (Sat) to 11/24 (Wed) @ Uehara store!
Laetitia Jacquetton is a French female artist who has rapidly gained popularity in recent years for her unique flower vases that combine blown glass and stone. Her first solo exhibition in Japan will be held at FOOD FOR THOUGHT Uehara store for five days from November 20th to November 24th.
Latitia was a career woman who built a career in fashion at Martin Margiela and others and worked as an art director at Galeries Lafayette in Paris, but her life changed completely when she encountered blown glass while traveling in Okinawa. I chose to live as an artist as my third career. After that, he learned the technique of blown glass in Murano and Venice, Italy. We currently have workshops in France and Italy.
Her work consists of combining various "natural" stones she has collected from around the world with glass she blows herself. Of course, all pieces are one-of-a-kind. The fusion of the static and stable stone and the blown glass that matches the shape of the stone gives us a solemn sense of exhilaration, like finding a small waterfall in the forest. increase. As a nature lover, it goes without saying that she pays close attention to the surrounding environment when she collects rocks.
Another thing, Latitia's work makes us strongly aware of the "journey" that we have temporarily lost due to the corona crisis. For example, arranging Japanese flowers on stone that has been polished for hundreds of years in French riverbeds and Italian glass. With the inevitability of having elements that we would never have met without the artist's actions, they are now in our hands in Japan. It is an emotional moment as if one "journey" was completed in your hands.
We think of the store name ``FOOD FOR THOUGHT'' as ``notices and hints that make everyday life a little richer'', and Latitia's work is exactly FOOD FOR THOUGHT itself.
It is very meaningful for us to be able to introduce for the first time in Japan a group of works that serve as hubs for thought and communication, as flower vases on tables, as statement pieces for decorating interiors.

Time moved slowly as she dreamed of the world 's grandest cities filled with cultural treasures. Giving in to this magnetic attraction, she found her way into fashion design, working for luminaries such as Sharon Wauchob and Martin Margiela . Soon propelled into the world, on a constant lookout for novel experiences, she took up various roles, such as art director for Galeries Lafayette , Paris. She gradually moved past the hysteria of runway collections and towards a more timeless approach to fashion.
