三宅砂織 Saori Miyake
2009.11.21 Sat. - 12.26 Sat.

Yuka Sasahara Galleryでは11月21日から12月26日まで三宅砂織個展「CONSTELLATION 2」を開催いたします。



Yuka Sasahara Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of 'CONSTALLATION 2', a solo exhibition by Saori Miyake from November 21st to December 26th.

Miyake (1975- ) is best known for her photography works and drawings working predominately in the past few years with the photogram. Despite being photography, the photogram requires no need of cameras. By arranging objects directly onto light sensitive papers and exposing to light, it appears as a photography work.

Miyake uses various objects such as buttons, spangles, cutouts and layers of drawings on thin papers. Moving and staggering to place, each object produces great gradation and peculiar depth and texture on the surface. As each works are made one by one, carefully, with a different plot and process, most of her works has no edition.

For some years, she has been fascinated by the idea of human emotions as they reflect the connection of stimulation from nerves. She sees a similarity between interpreting stimulus as a dot, seeing a connection from one to another, and looking for constellation in the night sky.

Her interests appear in the title of this exhibition - 'CONSTELLATION 2', a successive title from her last solo exhibition at Yuka Sasahara Gallery. Generally meaning 'the position of stars', Miyake also believes that it is meant to be a representation of an 'aggregate of beautiful things'. In this exhibition, each work is a constellation made out of sparkly dots, while the whole exhibition is also a big constellation.

We hope you enjoy Miyake's solo exhibition featuring sixteen of the latest photogram works.
