Taiji Matsue Exhibition
December 8, 2018 - February 24, 2019
Taiji Matsue (b. 1963) made his debut as a photographer after graduating from the geography department at the University of Tokyo. Strongly fixated on compositions without horizon lines and two-dimensionality, Matsue has captured images throughout the world with a consistent style defined by shooting in direct light to avoid producing shadows. Thoroughly eliminating of any sense of centrality, periphery, depth or contrast, Matsue’s works are displayed as flat pictures, which treat every element equally. This exhibition, Matsue’s first solo show at a public museum, spans the artist’s career, including some new pieces, and reexamines at his challenging approach to the ever-changing techniques that arise out of technological advances.
