This fall, the Galerie Da-End is pleased to present ‘No-Zarashi’, a solo exhibition by Japanese photographer and multidisciplinary artist Satoshi Saïkusa.
Over the last decade, Saïkusa has turned towards artistic projects in which the themes of memory and the fragility of being appear recurrently, shedding light on his own preoccupations.
In Japan, it is the custom not to fully explain things but rather indicate a semantic direction and let the other give his own interpretation. Fond of this spirit maieutics, the artist prefers to raise questions through his art rather than delivering any message. Inspired by the short story « In a Grove » by famous Japanese writer Ryūnosuke Akutagawa (1892-1927), he distorts the supposedly truthful photographic medium to tell his own stories.
