After a successful debut at Parades Gallery in Matsumoto, Japan, we are delighted to bring this wonderful group show to a UK audience. Join us for the second instalment of SOMETHING MADE DIFFERENT – a collaborative exhibition of new works by 5 international artists, inspired by Japanese imagery and experiences.

The juxtaposition of Japan’s rich cultural heritage sitting alongside unique social and pioneering technological environments lends itself to diverse responses. Each artist has spent time in various parts of Japan, which has informed their individual take on a country of great contrasts. Photographs, paintings, textiles and mixed media installations will be on view throughout in the B&B gallery space throughout July.

Summer is here and it is time for SOMETHING MADE DIFFERENT.

SOMETHING / MADE / DIFFERENT Parades Gallery Matsumoto JP

Something made differentとは今あるものを別のものにするという意味があります。

日本の豊かな文化遺産と共存するユニークな社会、先駆的なテクノロジー、それらが混じり合った環境は多様なレスポンスを生み出します。
本展ではそんな多様性のある『日本』を4人の海外アーティスト達が独自の視点で捉えた作品を展示します。彼らが「春の訪れと共に新しい形を追求しましょう」とアートをを通じて呼びかけている作品は今ある日常を別の角度から切り取っています。

Flux Opening

I had a lovely time at the opening on Thursday. Greenwich is a beautiful area of london, and the gallery is right next to the famous Cutty Sark, and a small walk from the Royal Observatory which offers a fantastic view on London. Very cool. Here are a few photos, thanks to everyone who showed up x

FLUX: a new exhibition in London.

Starting next month (April 18) is my new exhibition in collaboration with british artist Jo Peel at Ben Oakley gallery 9 Turnpin Lane, Greenwich Market London SE10. If you are in town please come by! x

FLUX – a new exhibition by Jo Peel and Florence Blanchard – features visions of despairing urban landmarks and aims to warn us about the imminent loss of ‘taken for granted’ urban icons of our current society. Peel looks at the high street, its days numbered as stalwarts of our cultural landscape are closed down and re-imagined to service the changing needs of our society, while Blanchard imagines the cities of tomorrow with a twist of surrealism and humour. Both artists will show new works on canvas and paper.Untitled
