Japanese Whispers

François Fontaine

CFOC, Compagnie Française de l'Orient et de la Chine
170, Boulevard Haussmann
75008 Paris (FRANCE)


From 2012-09-20 to 2012-11-17




Travelling to Japan was a child dream. Since ever, I was observing on the walls of our home, the prints of Utamaro and Harunobu that my father, a navy officer, had got back from a trip there.

Leaving for Japan in spring 2008, I found again this universe that was clearly striking a chord. All along the trip, an hazy floating accompanied me. Like the Shoji, those doors that silently slide in the wooden grooves of the temples and of traditional houses, I was in a vaporous and silent world.

The similarity between people and nature was the most striking. Furtive silhouettes seen in bars from Shinjuku to Tokyo, the frail silhouettes sliding in the alleys of Gion or Kyoto, were looking like the paintings from my childhood in an uncanny way. Just like the fantastic and hybrid shapes that cover the trees and the bamboos of the gardens of Kanazawa and Kamakura. Daily skimmings and rustles were echoing in me like “whispers”. Japan, more than any other countries, gave me the extreme feeling to blend with nature and float with clouds.
