Kazuna Taguchi "Half in Grey"
This event has ended.
void + is holding "half in grey", an exhibition of work by Kazuna Taguchi. The art of Taguchi, whose practice transcends the boundary between painting and photography, emerges from a series of complex processes. Taguchi begins by gathering a selection of the innumerable images that flood media such as fashion magazines and the Internet. Disassembling them, she uses the resulting fragments to make montages, which she then renders in paint. The delicate canvases thus created are then photographed, taking on their final, completed form via another different medium.
Here we have certain "things" that definitely did exist - faces, for example, scenes from nature, cosmic landscapes; but by taking images that existed through someone's filter, dismantling, and giving them new life, Taguchi turns them into something grey. As a result, the initial images of these "things" begin to take on different meanings. Kazuna Taguchi's works draw our attention to the unfettered multiplicity of the very act of looking that we undertake so casually.
