Kenryou Gu
Born in Kyoto in 1994 and raised in Shanghai, Kenryou Gu began his career as an artist after studying contemporary art and photography at the Kyoto University of Arts and the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie in Arles, France.

Gu gained attention as a promising artist, exhibiting his solo show "Kenryou Gu: Yin/Remains" at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, as part of the museum's "Aperto" exhibition series featuring young artists.

Gu has been known for his photographic works created using a technique he calls "digital weaving," which involves disassembling multiple photographic images at the pixel level and recombining them on-screen to create a woven effect. For his latest exhibition, he presents works inspired by stones he encountered during a visit to Iceland. Using the coordinates of the stones' locations, Gu asked 16 friends from around the world to take photographs facing the stones from their respective locations. These 16 images were then woven together using his "digital weaving" technique.

In this exhibition, along with these photographs, Gu presents images of the stones he captured and maps. Fragments of multiple images, produced while accommodating the discrepancy between the coordinates of the spherical Earth and the flatly placed map coordinates, are combined into a single plane through Gu's "digital weaving." Through perceiving and recognizing the world from a single stone, Kenryou Gu's new exhibition seeks to expand the possibilities of photographic expression.
