Electric Japan 2022: Mayumi Hirata
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
Acclaimed photographer and documentary artist Mayumi Hirata presents two special photographic projects celebrating Japanese art and culture.
Jump! showcases Japanese artists and performers, designers, chefs and even monks – each captured jumping against a backdrop of identifiably classical European settings. Her images present “free spirits and movement” as well as “challenges in unfamiliar settings”, all with a dash of humour.
We are also thrilled to present a compelling exhibition of her photographs capturing the work of multi-award winning traditional ‘irezumi’ tattoo artist, Horiren 1st. A range of extraordinarily intricate full and part-body artworks are captured through Hirata’s lens.
