The 275th Kijuro Yahagi: Magnetic Vision/100 New Works May 8 (Fri.) to 30 (Sat.)

The May 2009 exhibition at Ginza Graphic Gallery will feature Kijuro Yahagi’s “Magnetic Vision/100 New Works.” Kijuro Yahagi has been delving into the world of perception since “Shot by a Sight” in 1988. Continued with “Perceiving by Sight” (1992), “One’s Point of View” (1994), “Hidden Accumulated Vision” (1998) and “Existence Appearance” (2000), the series attempts to unravel the mysterious design of the visual world from various angles.
The new series, “Magnetic Vision,” features 100 new works. When looking at a certain area through a magnifying glass, that particular area appears magnified. However, the inside of the lens compresses a much larger world that includes the surrounding scenery. The resulting effect is an image in which the surrounding world appears to be magnetically drawn inward. Yahagi’s works put forth the questions, “How can one reconcile the fact that the images in the frames are seamlessly connected with the surroundings,” and “Can one truly close in on the world one is consciously viewing?”
