Ritsue Mishima: Riflessioni is on view at Pierre Marie Giraud, Brussels
October 15 – November 7, 2020
Pierre Marie Giraud is pleased to announce Ritsue Mishima’s sixth solo exhibition in Brussels. On view from October 15 through November 7, 2020, ‘Riflessioni’ features new glass sculptures and vessels. With her fascination for the plays of light and transparency, Ritsue Mishima feels at home in Venice – surrounded by the water. Working in close collaboration with the city’s artisans, the Japanese artist orchestrates in the furnaces of glass blowers, the production of her artworks in an attempt to capture and shape light itself. A making process that passes between many hands. Her energetic and sculptural production exclusively uses colourless glass. Each work has its own life, character and identity.
Ritsue Mishima was born in Kyoto, Japan in 1962. She lives and works between Japan and Italy. In 2001 she won the Giorgio Armani Prize for Best Artist at Sotheby’s Contemporary Decorative Arts Exhibition in London and, in 2012, the received the Bavarian State Award at Exempla 2012 in Munich. Museum exhibitions include In Grimani: Ritsue Mishima Glass Works, Museum of Palazzo Gimani, Venice, Italy, 2013, and Frozen Garden: Fruits of Fire, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Netherlands in 2010.
