Yoh Aoki “Inverted Spectrum”

This event has ended.

Aoki photographs scenes encountered in everyday life: the room he occupies, the neighborhood he strolls about, scenery he just happens upon. Some of his scenes hint at a human presence or show traces of daily life, while others are inorganic, seemingly capturing nothing, yet giving a sense of something present. At first glance they seem to be specimens of I-photography. But nearly all of them were photographed from an objective viewpoint: some purposely shot to look that way, others being homages to a specific artist’s works, others artificially embellished human portraits. Each photo contains different elements. When Aoki’s disparate photos are lined up, each has a separate meaning and tells a different story. Yet they each have the power to speak to our human senses or memory – and make us imagine what story each tells.
