Isao Hashinoki “Landscape_es.cape”
This event has ended.
Egen Gallery is pleased to present its opening exhibition, “Landscape_es.cape” by Isao Hashinoki.
Hashinoki has been taking landscape photographs as his lifework. In this series, he takes a faint sense of discomfort as a cue to cut out a scene, deconstructing our visual perception and reconstructing it into a new landscape. Through this process, he has returned to drawing, a medium in which he first discovered himself as a teenager. He has started to challenge in genres and expressions that he had been attracted to at the time but had distanced himself from. His first book which will be published on the same day as his first exhibition is a release from the model of others, and the show will expand beyond photography. This process is also the title of this exhibition, “escape”, and it is also an expression and the release of “es” (instinctive desire and impulse), which is one of the structures of the mind advocated by Freud.
In his book, Hashinoki writes, “The world I have believed in and the world I have not known. Both are independent and cohabitating with each other”. Me, you, and someone else. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The sceneries each of us has seen are all wonderful. There is a quiet affirmation there.
