Nobuyoshi Araki "Past tense - Future, 1979-2040"

Taka Ishii Gallery

poster for Nobuyoshi Araki "Past tense - Future, 1979-2040"

This event has ended.

The current exhibition will comprise approximately 10,000 works representing the period between 1979 and 2040, when Araki will be 100-years-old. Araki created the images by manipulating the camera’s dating feature, which imprints dates on the bottom of the photographic print. The works will be displayed in chronological order and presented as a diary. Araki has worked previously with the fascination, which the simultaneous exhibition of mass quantities of images can produce. Shown as a diary that encompasses not only the past, but also the future, each of the approximately 10,000 images displayed appear to express the artist’s interior self and give a strong sense of the unique world that exists within the images. Araki continues to pursue new photographic possibilities while creating images that frankly communicate his emotions, and also addressing memories of the recent great East Japan earthquake.

I want to go. The thing about manipulating pic-dates to the future sounds awesome.
