Opening Reception with the artist: Friday 1 Feb 08, 19:00 ü| 22:00
Gallery White Room Tokyo is pleased to announce our new launched exhibition in the SIDE ROOM called ügReflectionsüh by Naruki Oshima, a photographer based in Kyoto and Germany, from Friday 1 February to Sunday 2 March 2008.
ügReflectionsüh is the series presented in Japan and abroad since 2002, notably including the exhibition at the 9th Venice biennale in 2004, and has established high international recognition.
Naruki Oshima captures the contiguous layered images reflected on the glass facade of the buildings facing to the urban streets as momentary visions of the cities. In his works, each ordinary scene is converted into extraordinary abstract image space.
He intentionally breaks the lines and the aerial perspective of the images and by doing so to remove the visual rules, he succeeds to strengthen the continuity of seemingly puzzling visual phenomenon.
Original catalogue of the exhibition will be printed in a limited edition of 1,000 will be available for purchase.
