A dialogue between yesterday and today, between East and West,
featuring stunning antiques alongside new items made using ancestral techniques and contemporary art pieces.
Together creating a new inspirational experience with deep roots in Japanese tradition.
Galerie KAERAÑ offers Japanese artifacts and creations curated by Mathilde Roseanne Brégeon in Japan.
Drawing from her artistic expertise in design and art direction (working with Hermes, Kenzo, Pierre Frey, Chiso Kyoto among others) and love for Japanese craftsmanship, Mathilde selects Japanese pieces that tell a story, stir emotion and touch the heart. Alongside these items are her own contemporary designs and commissions, made by modern Japanese craftsmen.
A lover of Japanese arts and craftsmanship, Mathilde relocated full-time to Kyoto, Japan in 2019 after 15 business trips between Paris and Kyoto. Here she has collaborated with some of Kyoto’s top artisans, sharing their work with a global audience through pop up events in Paris and now online via Galerie KAERAÑ. These relationships often begin in serendipitous encounters and are deepened by Mathilde’s appreciation of high quality craftsmanship, passion for sustainable and natural materials and desire to learn from the Japanese craftspeople of yesterday and today.
