This event has ended.
Narahara Ikko held his first solo exhibition, “Ningen no Tochi” (Human Land), in 1956, the year he worked, among others, with artists Ay-O (a.k.a. Takao Iijima) and Ikeda Masuo; This was an exhibition that generated a great response and made him known as photographer to the Japanese public and the Japanese art world.
The title of this exhibition “Where Time Has Vanished” is taken from his 1975 photo collection which consists of a series of works Narahara took in the United States in between 1970 and 1974. For Narahara, this series is what made him find himself as photographer and whose expression’s bold spatio-temporal scale can be said to make it into Narahara’s finest work. With this series as a connecting node, this exhibition is divided into two parts, showing works done by Narahara between 1954 and 1970 and works from the period between 1970 and 2000.
