Over the Influence presents Hana Jinsei (Flower – Life), a solo exhibition of photographic works by Nobuyoshi Araki.
Curated by Hisako Motoo, who often collaborates with the artist on shows and publishing projects, the exhibit offers Araki’s intimate and sentimental view of the world through images of flowers. The relationship between life and death is a major thematic arc in Araki’s work, which can be found in his earliest photographs of dried-up flowers in graveyards to his most recent series “KAYU”. Hana Jinsei (Flower – Life), includes floral motif works from multiple series across his distinguished career such as “Flowers and Jamorinsky”,“KAIN”, “FLOWER LOND”, “EROTOS”, “SHIKIJOKA”, and “KAYU”.
