Artist: Mayumi Terada

We are very pleased to announce our new exhibition :
< Another Angle > by Mayumi TERADA from 19th Jun. through 19th Jul. 2020 in Gallery OUT of PLACE TOKIO.

Mayumi Terada has been showing her photographic works in New York since 2000, leaving her career as a three-dimensional artist until the 1990s.
This is her first solo exhibition in Japan in three years, and she will present new works based on the theme of the sky.
While following the style of photographing her own miniatures, she also goes beyond the "ambiguous fictionality" of photographic art.
It is a series of works that will be impressed into the mind of the viewer with a divine light and color that can be called "absolute".
Perhaps "Another Angle" suggests a shift in providence in the post-Corona age.


Artist Statement

Another Angle

What is true beauty?
What is really important?
It's easy to get lost in the midst of an intricate society and shifting times.
In rare cases, I have met people who are able to articulate what is truly beautiful and what is really important, without conforming to norms or tatemae (formality), bowing to neither power or wealth.
I'd like to call them the Celestial Gazers.
They always seem to be confronting the unreasonable, and their gaze, which tries to see the true value, is not same as others.
The focus of a lens called "another angle" is very deep.
I would like to imagine the mental vision of an exacting but gentle celestial gazer.
