Nobuyoshi ARAKI

Publisher: Thircuir Limited

Nobuyoshi Araki'sCrazy Old Man Acontains a series of polaroid snapshots exhibited at the Impossible Space Beijing in 2014. With text included in both Japanese, English and French the polaroid images capture figures and objects which resonate with themes familiar with Araki's works.The female subject returns again within this collection of polaroids, stark and portrayed in a more darker tone, seen through the different layers created in areas where the emulsion has eroded; leaving corners and areas blocked out by black and brown effects. Here the images of Araki's fascination with Kinbaku, and other familiar scenes of flowers modeled with toys signifying both male and female genitalia are coupled with the use of the polaroid medium. The resulting effect is a beautiful yet dark collection of images reflecting important themes within the artist's visual language, the endless cycle of life and death, female eroticism and of his love for his birth place Tokyo, Japan.
