This event has ended.

The 60 photographs by Mika Ninagawa that make up this exhibition are a record of the days that preceded the death of her father the theater director Yukio Ninagawa. In her words, they were taken “with the eyes of a person destined to die.” In each photograph, the gaze of the father who would be leaving this beautiful world is superimposed on the gaze of the daughter who would inherit it. But, like footsteps that continue beyond the STOP sign in one of the photographs, the father’s connection with the daughter and with the children of his daughter continues even after the apparent end of life. These “beautiful days” of Mika and Yukio Ninagawa were captured during the year after the solo exhibition Mika Ninagawa: Self-image at the Hara Museum in 2015. “It is a mystery as to how I took them,” she says about the photographs, so different are they from her previous work.
