Traces of Light in Modernism
Koshiro Onchi, Osamu Shiihara and Ei-Q
Published by The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, 1997, 40 pages (b/w ill.), 21 × 29.7 cm, Japanese / English
Price: €55

Various artistic trends originating in Europe after World War 1, such as Russian Constructivism, the Bauhaus in Germany and Surrealism in France, left a strong impression on Japanese art and photography in the Taisho and the early Showa periods. In photography in particular, the Western influence brought a new movement called Shinko Shashin (New Photography) in the early Showa period. This exhibition was an attempt at reexamining the visual expression in the period from the perspective of the photographic work of artists from fields other than photography, focusing on the work of Koshiro Onchi, Osamu Shiihara and Ei-Q.

「箱の中へ…」4 あとのまつりの為に
Tatsuo Ikeda
Published by Galerie Tokyo Humanité, Tokyo, 1996, 6 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 22 cm, Japanese
Price: €38

Working in proximity to US military compounds and naval bases in Japan during and following World War II, Tatsuo Ikeda composed a visual vocabulary that escaped order and realism. Primarily drawing and painting on paper, Ikeda creates surreal scenes where mutated bodies morph with nearly unrecognisable architecture set on backgrounds of swirling line drawings or empty gradients. Ikeda lived for almost a century and shaped his art career around the tumults that he experienced as a result of US and Japanese political affairs.
