The ‘Aka Ana’ series was born out of the special relationship between the artist and Japan and took several years to develop.
Punctuating the whole story are the words whispered to him by one of the Japanese girls he used in the series, evoking images of genitals or the Japanese flag: ‘I am a hole’.
Desperate pursuits; the madness and violence that sustain human life. Taking pictures is always a limitless pursuit to get ahead, and to continue, doomed to failure.
Crossing the boundaries between images and words, always pushing forward, always further. Here, the impure relationship between life and photography and the unfair link between photographer and subject are intensely emphasised.
The images grow like an amoeba and the e-mails, in their hundreds, become like an ocean.
