Yuki Kimura "Untitled"

Izu Photo Museum

poster for Yuki Kimura "Untitled"

This event has ended.

The subject exhibition, with entirely new works, has been named “Untitled”. As in the title, by excluding stories and keywords, through the works alone Kimura attempts a more practical expression of her deliberation on the relationship between the image and its supporting medium or the photograph’s posteriority, which has matured slowly through her past work. In addition, there is no central image; while the effect created by the arranged individual images expands freely in various directions, the entire space forms a single installation work.

The photographs used here include those that Kimura took herself while traveling, those found in her grandfather’s albums, those purchased from various cities across the world, those sent from friends, etc. They reached the artist through various routes, and have been carefully selected according to their themes. Kimura attempts to bind the images of the “past” indicated by the photographs or the correlation between the image and the object with the space before one’s eyes through her analytical involvement with the simple task of arrangement. In this manner, a “present” only to be found here now, vividly appears in “Untitled.”
