Revolution 9 | Takashi Homma                                                                                   6th October 2023 - 21st January 2024             
Takashi Homma (Tokyo, 1962) received the 24th Kimura Ihei Award for his photo book Tokyo Suburbia (published by Korinsha) in 1999. The work was highly acclaimed due to Homma’s approach of maintaining a certain distance from his subjects – people and landscapes in the suburbs of Tokyo that were in the process of being developed – and a perspective that was free of lyricism.

This exhibition, Homma’s first solo show at a Japanese museum in ten years, focuses on series such as The Narcissistic City, which the artist has described as an attempt to “use the city to shoot the city” by shooting cities around the world using rooms as if they were pinhole cameras. The light that streams into through a small hole, open to the outside, spontaneously captures inverted urban landscapes inside the pitch-black room.

Improvisation is one of the keywords in the exhibition. Homma is currently interested incorporating chance into his works and exhibitions, and the English title of this exhibition, Revolution 9 (whose letters also appear in one of the works on display), serves as an homage to the famous song of the same name by the English rock band the Beatles. The collage-like piece was made by combining a variety of sound sources.

The exhibition traces Homma’s radical approaches to photographic and video expression to the present day by introducing his works from the last decade.
