Flowers Bloom, Butterflies Come

Flowers Bloom, Butterflies Come

Miho KAJIOKA

Publisher: IIKKI

NUMBERED

Initiated by French publisher Iikki, “Flowers Bloom, Butterflies Come” mixes photographs by France-based Japanese artist Miho Kajioka and music by UK-based combo Observatories (consisting of Ian Hawgood and Craig Tattersall) in a genre- and medium-transcending publication.

Kajioka, whose photographic practice is based on intuitive snapshots, utilizes her collected photography as the material from which she creates her poetic, multi-layered images. For “Flowers Bloom, Butterflies Come”, Kajioka and Observatories entered into an artistic dialogue with each other. Kajioka’s images – frozen moments, processed impressions, and instants filtered through long-established Japanese traditions of art and beauty – feature in a variety of ways, from full-page arrangement that seem like illustration-like scratchings to small, concentrated squares of focused meaning. Observatories’ soundtrack provides an aesthetically fitting soundtrack of melodic ambient works created using old synths and toy instruments.
