This event has ended.
Over the Boarder is pleased to present “eclose,” a photo exhibition of the work of Akinaga Fujii. Fujii is a professional photographer in the field of advertisement, and at the same time utilizes these skills and experiences to create his own body of work derived from his strong interest and investigation of “beauty.” The subjects of the two series which compose this exhibition, “come away with me” and “one in the tears,” are both transparent objects photographed extremely up close. In addition to being indecipherable at first glance, the organic forms and colors have an allure that demands our attention. The title “eclose” is a word that refers to when a pupa or larva emerges from its egg. It is a vivid illustration of the experience of the artist himself, as he “eclosed” from his artist’s block upon encountering this subject matter This exhibition is an attempt to verify a supposition that beauty, as the artist observed, is not something perfect and stable, but rather close to home, and harbors a curiosity-inducing unstableness, constantly undergoing change.
