Rinko Kawauchi

Share:

Rinko Kawauchi’s new series, “Ametsuchi” – which translates as “heaven” and “earth” – explores how mankind relates to time. Vast landscape pictures depict the traditional, controlled burning of farmland, demonstrating the destructive yet rejuvenating power of fire. The series of fire pictures are punctuated with abstract and calm images of stellar constellations and religious rituals.

Interwoven with the images of recurring agricultural and religious rituals and starry skies, Kawauchi conjures up a connection between the past and the present, the spiritual world and reality, between Heaven and Earth.

Born in 1972, Kawauchi is regarded as one of the most important female contemporary Japanese artists. To date, she has published 16 photo books. Her works have been shown in individual exhibitions all over the world, including in the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Gallery at Hermès, New York, in the São Paulo Museum of Modern Art and in the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art in Paris.
