Modern Art is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by Sanya Kantarovsky and Camille Blatrix at the gallery’s Bury Street space. This marks the first collaboration between the two artists.
While visiting Japan between 2018 and 2019, Kantarovsky developed an edition of traditional Ukiyo‑e woodblock prints together with the Adachi Hanga Institute of Printmaking in Tokyo. Here, Kantarovsky’s prints are housed individually in frames fabricated out of Corian by Camille Blatrix. The frames are embedded with handcrafted wood marquetry pieces, each decorative element responding to the prints they encase. Reminiscent of bivalve shells, the frames are designed with revolving exterior faces, offering optional protection or exposure throughout the course of the exhibition.
