Untitled ©︎Hyogo Mugyuda

 Hyogo Mugyuda

Hyogo Mugyuda creates work focusing on the theme Articial S. The letter “S” contains a sense of plurality. It also stands for “Sense” , and through this the meaning of the title Artificial S becomes “manmade sensations”. Artificial S is comprised of 7 chapters, and although each chapter has its own subheadings, expressed throughout all chapters is the sense of “life and death” merging into each other.

Difinition for Blank ©YukiNakazawa

 Yuki Nakazawa

With digital photography, parts with excess exposure appear totally white. That reduced and detatched white looks as though it my connect to another world. Digital photography converts the world into numerical data, and through the moniter it turns into light (RGB), and on inkjet prints it turns into color (CYMK). Landscapes that evaborate into the excess exposure of light do not appear as ink on paper through inkjet printing, it is simply revealed as plain paper. Wouldn’t this mean that it is not a photograph, but simply paper? By capturing light (past reality), paper (the present) and the detatched quality of white along the same lines, this exhibition offers the viewer new ways of perception.

Exchanging Wisdom ©︎Viktoria Sorochinski

 Viktoria Sorochinski

Anna & Eve is a narrative project which began in 2005 and lasted 7 years. Like much of Viktoria Sorochinski’s work, Anna & Eve dwells between fantasy and documentary. The staged scenes reveal the peculiar relationship of Anna and Eve, whose roles as mother and daughter seem to flip. Sorochinski’s production methods and mythical framework reflect her interest in folklore, its symbolism and common knowledge, as well the moral values and influences it holds on children’s perceptions of what is good and bad. With the relationship of Anna and Eve at its starting point, the work does not draw from any particular folk tale, but rather, through phantasmagorical production methods and Sorochinski’s unique interpretation of the mother-daughter relationship, the artist gives birth to a new kind of mythology. This exhibition is Sorochinski’s first solo exhibition being held in Japan, and presents a selection of both earlier and later works from Anna and Eve, a world in which fantasy and reality blurs and merges into each other.
