Motoyuki Daifu “Still Life”
This event has ended.
Motoyuki Daifu’s recent body of work “Project Family” featured images of his parents, sisters and brothers - and, occasionally, the family cat; capturing the chaos of Daifu’s atypical Japanese family in an unsentimental, matter-of-fact manner. Unlike this previous photo series, the photographs of “Still Life” are unpopulated - focusing on the un-staged yet chaotically distinct everyday arrangements of food and household items lain upon the kitchen table in his family home. Though un-manipulated, Daifu’s photographs are possessed with a disembodied, post-net sensibility; overabundant with imagery yet absent of human presence, the work short-circuits a mournful read via Daifu’s infectious sense of humor and stands as a celebration of and within a chaos of images.
