Item details

In this work, light, which was born just before the fuse burnt out, is directly printed on photographic paper. The images printed on photographic paper are like marks made at the very moment light that was born out of annihilation was emitted. The idea of annihilation is not the negation of generation. Rather, I would say there is no difference between them.

Hitoshi Kuriyama is a Japanese mixed-media artist working in the creative disciplines of photograph, sculpture and installation. In his works, he explores equivalency in conflicting ideas such as “existence” and “non-existence” or “creation” and “destruction,” and demonstrates them from a scientific perspective. He has theorized the hypothesis “0=1” and attempts to prove it through his works. He has participated in numerous exhibitions worldwide such as “data and vision” Aki gallery (Taipei, Taiwan), “GLASSTRESS 2011” collateral event of the 54th Venice Biennale (Venice, Italy), “Drifting Images” BODA (Seoul, South Korea), “Lichtkunstfestival Aufstiege,” St. Cyriakus Church (Stuttgart, Germany), “Islamic Arts Festival 20th Session,” Sharjah Art Museum (Sharjah, UAE).
