unión de...Interactional Casa Barragán

7th of June – 4th of August 2012

Christophe Guye Galerie is proud to announce its upcoming exhibition unioìn de...Interactional Casa Barragaìn, introducing the latest work of the internationally acclaimed Japanese artist Noritoshi Hirakawa. For the very first time on view in Europe, following the museum exhibition Noritoshi Hirakawa x Luis Barragaìn, in Mexico City, this solo exhibition presents the suggestive while sensual series unioìn de.... In a way distinctly his own, the photography, video, and performance artist Hirakawa manages with intriguing visuals and story-telling attributes to visualise the synergy between man and architecture, while similarly a critique directed against representations of space. Offering an unfamiliar take on architectural photography Hirakawa focuses on conceptions that inhabitants give space life. Inspired by the creations of architect Luis Barragaìn, the artist manages to capture the essence, rather than the structure, of the famed Casa Barragaìn, as well as Barragaìns notorious emotional approach to architecture. Furthermore, the gallery is pleased to present the corresponding monograph unioìn de... Interactional Casa Barragaìn published by Hatje Cantz, one of the leading international publishers for art publications.

Opening reception with the artist and an introduction by Tobia Bezzola, Wednesday, 6th of June 2012, 6 – 8 p.m. The monograph "unión de..." will be published for the exhibition by Hatje Cantz.
