Masaru Aikawa Exhibition / 相川勝「specimen / 標本」

9 May – 3 June, 2024

As technology has advanced, images in photographs have always been influenced by photosensitive materials in photographic paper. In the exhibited works, Masaru Aikawa seeks to free images from the photosensitive materials, reducing them to light and shadow alone. In the works, images are developed on the UV-curable resin used in 3D printing. While thoroughly transparent, the works elicit images from their own shadows, a state that Aikawa considers the most natural and beautiful state for photographs. Visitors are invited to encounter Aikawa’s new works, with their focus on the thoughts and actions of persons who undergo change together with the rapid advance of photography.
