Opening reception in presence of the artist, and book-signing of his first monograph:

with introduction by Tobia Bezzola, contributing author of the monograph unión de…Interactional Casa Barragán

Christophe Guye Galerie is proud to announce its upcoming exhibition introducing the latest work of the internationally acclaimed Japanese artist Noritoshi Hirakawa. Following the museum exhibition ‘Noritoshi Hirakawa x Luis Barragán’, in Mexico City, this solo exhibition will for the very first time on view in Europe, before travelling on to the US, France, and Japan. Hirakawa’s work on a whole questions the future relationship between art and society, while similarly suggests a reconsidering of traditional role-play. Working in a variety of media – photography, film, dance, installation, and performance alike – Hirakawa’s work has been exhibited in over 300 exhibitions around the globe, including the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt, Center Pompidou in Paris, or PS 1 Museum in New York. Inspired by the creations of architect Luis Barragán, the artist manages to capture the essence, rather than the structure, of Barragán’s notorious “emotional” approach to architecture. Whether sexual tension or emotional Hirakawa orchestrates games of power, desire, and communication, through the use of dancers, delicately both visualising and capturing human physicality, as well as emotional response to space.

Born 1960 in Japan, Noritoshi Hirakawa (*1960) resides in New York City since 1993. Having studied Applied Sociology in his native Japan, Hirakawa is an internationally known contemporary artist. He has created numerous works in photography, film, dance, installation and performance, with the core belief that human activity forms the culture in which we live. His work deals with gender, media, religion and contemporary art itself. Even if seemingly provocative, at first glance, his suggestions are sincere questions about the existence and free within social system. His creation questions the future relationship between art and society as well as suggests a reconsidering of traditional role-play. His work has been exhibited over 300 times at museums, art centers, and galleries all over the world, including Venice Biennale Aperto, Istanbul Biennale, Santa Fe Biennale, and the Museum fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
