Born in Vietnam but living in Paris, Kim KototamaLune studied the techniques of textile craftsmanship before devoting herself entirely to glass. Cultural identity, the origins of life, and in-between spaces play into her inspirations. KototamaLune, who is fluent in several languages, says that cultural identity, the origins of life, and in-between spaces are the things that inspire her the most for these sculptures.
KototamaLune seeks to create an “uncharted territory in order to engage in a silent dialogue with the ‘strangers’ living in us. Those sculptures arise from the will to recover within each of us what is common in our fetal origins.”
