Clarity. This is the second time that Sayo Nagase has used this title for her exhibition.
However, she does not simply pursue photography that has transparency and clarity. Far
from being comprehensible, her work is based on a world of obscurity and the imperfection
of the vision that observes it. For Nagase, the world is something that only becomes visible
only, along with her unconscious, after she has gone through the tens of thousands of
photographs she has taken countless times, completely eliminating her subjectivity and
Shintaro Maki (Editor, Contributing Editor of Bijutsutecho art Journal magazine)


In the infinite cosmos, humans cannot live alone. We are unconsciously influenced and influenced by others through our connections. It's not necessary to separate what's good or bad, happy or unhappy; there's a perpetual elusive state right there. Have you ever wondered with whom and where you feel at ease or relaxed? Fragments of the world envelop us. This is the theme.
