From October 7th (Wednesday) to 18th (Sunday), Yuuki URYU is showing two-artists exhibition “What can you see from there?” with a friend photographer Mr.Kengo OSAKA in Kyoto at bookstore and gallery “MEDIA SHOP”.
Mr.OSAKA is an artist who has recorded and photographed many shrines and temples and cultural properties in Kyoto, and many works have been published in books. And the series “KARE-HANA”, which has been working on for nearly 10 years, is an atmosphere that looks a little beyond our imagination from the flowers that are dignified while gradually losing water as the root of all living things. (Mr.OSAKA is exhibiting this work in Tokyo in February this year, and will be exhibited in Kyoto just before this exhibition.) I think that the beauty of the blank space also characterizes his work.
As a friendship for about 10 years, I have been hope of showing it for a long time, and the two-artists exhibition can be realized this fall by various timings.
URYU will be the first exhibition in Kyoto. This is the first time since it was exhibited in Osaka as an exhibition for the photo magazine “81 Lab.” that I contributed to in Kansai region in 2008.
It’s a time when we can’t predict in various ways, but nevertheless, I want to continue to message the imagination of others who are not me, places that are not here, times that are not now.
We look forward to seeing you.
