Rika Noguchi "The light reaching the future"
This event has ended.
The shadow of a small person stands still on the horizon line. A person walks on a roof. A leaf floats on water and light glistens from it. The place in Japan closest to space, Mt. Fuji — what’s visible from its peak.
Small spaces and big, going back and forth between the microscopic and macroscopic with an original point of view, Rika Noguchi photographs a world overflowing with wonder. Choosing a subject that touches upon the riddle of the planet and its human dwellers, with the transparent quality of her color palette and elegance, she demonstrates a power of expression that is rich in poetic sentiment, garnering high praise both in Japan and abroad. When Noguchi started exhibiting her work in the first half of the 1990s in Japan, use of compact cameras was broadly adopted, affecting big changes in photography. This time was considered to be when a new generation for photographers emerged. Among these new artists Noguchi got a lot of attention early on for her independent style and photographs that pursued the domain of sight. In the almost twenty years of artistic activity since, her work has been exhibited in many international contemporary art exhibitions.
The stance of Noguchi's creative process is to approach the freeness of photography as a medium, which relates to the eager quest of the new work included in this current exhibition.
