SAKURA KELLEY / NANAO TOKI

サクラ・ケリーと土岐奈々央は、2013年に横浜で出会いました。Queerという共通点で繋がった二人は、サクラがアメリカへ帰国した後二年間連絡を取ることなく、2015年の夏に再会しました。

 本展は、二人のアーティストが遠く離れた地で過ごした二年間を、二週間という展示期間に作品で語り合い、また、会期中にスナップ写真を販売し配布していく事で、時間を切り取ることが出来る写真というメディア自体の性質や儚さを考え、Queer timeという概念と重ね合わせながら展示します。

Nanao and I decided on the title/theme for the show after ruminating on the time that has passed since we last saw each other. All the work in the show will be from those two years, during which we have had almost no contact. The "one queer time" points to the flexible, ever changing, "strangeness" of time. This strangeness of time, like how two years can be condensed into a two week show, or like how we live seemingly parallel lives in different countries only briefly intersecting, is expressed through a collaborative installation of over 400 photographs. And there is of course our connection to each other as queer artists/photographers!

It's been a fabulous challenge to reflect on photography, art, queerness and time. Hope folks can come out and see the show!

Thank you for all your support!
