Asako Shimizu

January 30, 2015 , written by manager

“At first glance, Asako Shimizu’s latest photographs seem filled with silence, asleep under a thick blanket formed by the whirling snow. Yet, as their title suggests, these images tell us a story, inviting us along the snowy roads of Northern Japan, listening for the whispers of the universe. But who exactly is this Storyteller? Our own inner voice? Asako Shimizu herself? Or is it rather Nature, the vital manifestations the artist strives to reveal? Manifestations found in the snowflakes that are swept away by the wind, creating paintings in multiple shades of white; or, more subtly, in the small hints of color scattered on the immaculate surfaces? As, although the series is dominated by soft grayish tones, Storyteller doesn’t exclude colour, which sometimes emerges like a breath of spring trying to revive the white landscape.”
Extract from the text by Valérie Douniaux,
Ph.D. in History of Japanese modern and contemporary art
