Just as we cannot touch the scenery reflected on the surface of the water, we cannot touch the wings of a bird in flight.
It is something that definitely exists in this world.
It's like a distance or a boundary between the landscape and yourself.
At a certain moment, I feel as if it has disappeared.
Kinkan Gallery is pleased to present "I Want to Touch the Wings of a Bird in Flight” a photography exhibition by Yoshiko Haraguchi from April 24th to May 23rd. Yoshiko Haraguchi has been taking photographs as an act of recognizing the uncertainty of the existence of what we see. Photographs can be captured only what already exists. However, photographs also record the uncertainty of existence (due to season, time, place, light, or one's own consciousness). The title of this exhibition, "I Want to Touch the Wings of a Bird in Flight”, implies that there is an unapproachable distance between herself and the subject. We may be able to see a bird flying above us or hear the sound of its wings, but we cannot touch its feathers. Uncertain existence is quietly told as a story freed from substance in her photographs. In this exhibition, prints printed by her shot on film between around 2018 and 2020 will be on display. Please take this opportunity to see them.
