PRESENTED ON DEC 12, 2018
IN TOKYO @ VOL 161

Almost by chance and after several life turns, Luis and Yuka founded an artist residence in Tokyo where international creatives can experience Japan and show their work. Together, they share their inspiring story, and they space that they’ve created, which is Almost Perfect.

LuisとYukaは、数々の偶然と紆余曲折を経て、東京にアーティストのための住処をオープンした。ここでは様々な国籍のクリエイターたちが集まり、作品を紹介したり、日本らしさを体験できたりする。今回は、彼らのこれまで歩んできた道と、彼らが作り上げた”Almost Perfect”な空間について、話してもらう。
