K-NARF
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 a liated 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 cra 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.
