K-NARF, a Tokyo-based French artist, started in 2016 the HATARAKIMONO PROJECT made of 102 Tape-o-graphic portraits of Japanese workers. This project creates an “Extra-Ordinary Visual Archive” for the future and preserves a barely highlighted mainstay of the Japanese culture: the strong respect for any kind of work and the people who are doing it. Together with the project exhibition, a street installation will display 80 full-size portraits of workers from the actual Kyoto Central Market area.
K-NARF [n.p.:kay-när/ff; Frank reversed]
French artist based in Japan. Since the early 2000’s, K-NARF has kept inventing a playful and experimental approach to photography where the past, present and future are always interconnected. Directly affiliated to the BRICOLAGE ART MOVEMENT, his work is not only limited to the image itself but also to create his own photographic world, halfway in between the imaginary and reality, using simple contemporary photographic tools and basic craft materials. Rather than just a photographer K-NARF can be described as a “photograph maker” who explores and documents the super-ordinary of the everyday life to transform it into an extra-ordinary visual archive of our time.
