Gazing at tool and scenery around artist and artisan, through Yan Kallen’s work, Between the Light and Darkness would like to present a similar state with staring at the moon. Through the still image of objects, one could sense the flow of time, the vague edge between light and darkness, the slow but exact movement could not be spotted by eyes, and constant change of everything.

Yan Kallen, who has been awarded the Kyotographie 2016 KG+ prize, moved to Kyoto half a year ago. He has been visiting the working area of Japanese artisan and artist. The work which is now exhibiting in Kyoto monument Mumeisha, Between the Light and Darkness, is based on this experience. In this work, Yan observes kettle, lacquerware, mirror, tools used in rituals, tatami, dyed cloth, Japanese paper, pottery, artist and artisan. Yan recorded their working tools and environment, share the Japanese artisan spirit with other in image.

This book is published by Hong Kong independent publisher Mosses, in accordance with the artwork Between the Light and Darkness, which is exhibiting in KYOTOGRAPHIE 2017. We aim at providing another perspective of art appreciation and by that, to make another Hong Kong artist be attended by the world.
