Araki Amore

With the emblematic title of Araki Amore the Galleria Carla Sozzani presents an exhibition of Nobuyoshi Araki, one of the most renowned and perhaps controversial Japanese photographers. A selection of works curated by Filippo Maggia, mostly unpublished and produced in the last two years.

Nobuyoshi Araki (Tokyo, 1940) is a generous artist, a tireless explorer of human passions and a fine portrait maker. He is always able to deeply relate with his subjects. In this exhibition the classic themes of his photographic research – nudes, Eros, floral arrangements, Death, the orderly yet chaotic metropolitan city – are all read today and processed with the recovery of negatives from the past decades. The female figure appears here to be as a less visible, almost evoked: in the dancing figures of the Kaori dancer and in the use of dolls and other puppets that have always populated the dreams of the Tokyo photographer, as if they were souvenirs or memories, simple notes left on the sentimental diary of a life that has been spent to celebrate the beauty and the time transience of things that are destined to fade.

Araki is never tired of exploring the mystery of the female universe, today as even more than fifteen years ago, when in Tokyo he said to Filippo Maggia: «I'll tell you something that might even seem extreme and absurd: I do not know anything about the nature of women. Through the lens I try to extract the nature of things and, in the case of women, of what they are like, in their daily lives or in their sexuality. But they are all different from each other, and that’s why I keep on taking pictures».

In the exhibition at the Galleria Carla Sozzani there are three new compositions of more than 100 polaroid, in color and in black & white, that have been selected and put together by Araki as unique works, and a video documentary that presents, for the first time in Italy, Nobuyoshi Araki to work with the dancer Kaori in a naked portrait session, taken last year in July in Tokyo. The exhibition is included in the official celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the relations between Japan and Italy, and it will be inaugurated on Thursday November 17th , 2016, from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm.
