Akane Ito “Eyes Open, But Not Seeing Reality”
This event has ended.
Akane Ito received the Grand Prize in the 22nd “1_WALL” Photography Competition for “(Last) Weekend Utopia Travel,” her series of photographs taken on weekends spent in search of her ideal utopias. Mainly self-portraits and landscapes, her photos depict real places as unreal realms; and in showing them, she spins a tale of her real self, searching for utopias, there encountering her “other” self, waiting for her.
In her solo show, through her works, Ito will express the realms she has seen by forging deeply into the utopias she has found. Besides photography, she will also incorporate other techniques into new works that integrate video or painting, thereby expressing her envisioned realms from multiple angles. Visitors are sure to be enthralled by Ito’s works, new and old, coming approximately a year after she won her Grand Prize.
