Zeitraum: 23.09.2009 bis 24.10.2009
Daikichi Amano at Bongout
September 23rd - October 24th, 2009
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 23rd at 7 pm.
Daikichi Amano has become one of the most exciting new visual artists working in Japan today, earning himself an international cult following. Drawing on iconography and mythology, Amano creates savage warriors, sea monsters, and devoured Sirens. He places them in all-consuming dioramas, evoking dramatic primal fears and dark desires.
Amano has brought to life the woodcut printed characters of traditional Shunga imagery (Japanese erotica), in a modern day interpretation. Looking at these images in the flesh, one will notice a strangely seductive power.
The photographs in his exhibition at Bongout Gallery do not hang in the shadows of their parental hardcore films. Rather, their conception, which inherits a lively narrative, is saturated with mystique.
Amano is a master director, producer, editor, photographer, columnist and pornographer. With the help from his studio, Genki-Genki, Amano challenges the conceptual line between art and pornography, and continually obscures this divide for future generations.
Born 1973, Lives and works in Tokyo, Japan.
Bongout will publish the first compilation of Amano's photographs, and will be available fall/winter of 2009.
