Shikijo: Eroticism in Japanese Photography

Blindspot Gallery

07 May 201625 Jun 2016

The exhibition Shikijo: Eroticism in Japanese Photography features the photography works by 13 Japanese artists, exploring the concept of eroticism and its prevalent presence in contemporary Japanese photography. The exhibition divided into four parts reflect how eroticism is being represented in different forms and styles of photography including tableau photography, snapshot, documentary, portraiture and still life.  Whether the images are voyeuristic or exhibitionistic, provocative or subdued, realist or abstract, staged or candid, these works address different subject matters: from the human body, private life to fantasy. All represent a distinctive aesthetic that speaks of eroticism in contemporary Japanese photography which, as the title “Shikijo” suggests, is perceived and felt rather than defined.

Featured artists: Emi Anrakuji, Nobuyoshi Araki, Noritoshi Hirakawa, Mayumi Hosokura, Eiki Mori, Daido Moriyama, Sakiko Nomura, Tokyo Rumando, Masato Seto, Issei Suda, Hideka Tonomura, Daisuke Yokota, Kohei Yoshiyuki.
