IN’EI is a new space in Venice for the art and design of China, Japan and Korea. The idea for the gallery came from the wish to create an open dialogue between Europe and Eastern Asia, offering the work of artists and architects originating from this area, but from different generations and backgrounds.
The Japanese term IN’EI, translated by the writer Tanizaki Jun’ichiro, means “shadow” and describes a particular approach to Beauty: “Let us allow the darkness to engulf us, and in it we will find a thing of beauty”. This suggestion gives shape and definition to the method adopted by the gallery – out of the real passion and experience of its two founders, Patrice Dumand and Hélène Dubois – placing at its centre projects born from a particular vision, to foster works and artists identified through careful research in the field, and their thorough knowledge of eastern Asia.
