The Ibasho Gallery in Antwerp, Belgium, presents photographs by the artist couple Ariko Inaoka and Sean Lotman. The showcase is open until March 8, 2020.
The Ibasho Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by two photographers who share both their professional and personal lives. The exhibition, aptly titled ‘Parallel Crossings’, offers insight into how their visual approaches and individual aesthetics correlate with one another.
In her series ‘Eagle and Raven’, Ariko Inaoka (born 1975 in Kyoto, Japan) recaptures her early memories of life in Kyoto through photographs created in Iceland – a place that strongly reminds her of her childhood home. It was in Iceland that she met her subjects, twin sisters Eagle and Raven. Fascinated by their harmonious relationship, she drew comparisons between their telepathic connection and the Shintoist belief that ‘kami’ (‘God’) exists in all elements.
Sean Lotman has lived in Japan since 2003. In his series ‘Sunlanders’ he presents the viewer with idiosyncratic interpretations of his adopted home country. In addition, selected works from his projects ‘The Sniper Paused So He Could Wipe His Brow’, ‘Middle Life Notes’ and ‘Lost in Space’ will also be on display.
