Taeko Ara "√1 (Square root of 1)"

Shinjuku Nikon Salon

poster for Taeko Ara "√1 (Square root of 1)"

This event has ended.

These works are the continuation of the artist's photograph exhibition "Muna Kami (God of Breasts) - From the Day I Got Breast Cancer." After she became sick, the artist had difficulty finding a way to overcome her terror that she had to come face to face with death. She had lost her confidence as a woman. She only had one breast, and could not even see herself as a wife any more. She got divorced because she wanted to be along, but was still stricken and overcome by loneliness. After the divorce, at times she would regain herself as a woman, and at times she longed to be part of a couple. When she looked around after she was calmer, she was surprised at how many Japanese today are not or cannot be a part of a couple and are alone. This exhibition explores the existence as a square root of 1, an existence that cannot be more than one. 33 color photographs and 4 black-and-white photographs will be on display.
