Paris : Nobuyoshi Araki, Polanography


Galerie &co119 is currently showing ‘Polanography’ by Nobuyoshi Araki, to coincide with the major retrospective of Araki’s work at Musée Guimet. The exhibition counts 132 pieces produced using Polaroids, a technique that played a key role in the artist’s work.
For this show, Araki took a series of his photographs and used them as his raw material. He cut his Polaroids in two and assembled them to form new composite images, thus creating a set of hybrid images caught between the themes of Eros and Thanatos (death), central to all his work. These ‘polanographies’ take an unusual approach as they explore the female shape, combining body and perspective.
