THE BOOK OF MY LIFE VOL 86 : Takuma Nakahira : Circulation : Date, Place, Events (1971/et chez Osiris en 2012)

23 Fév
In 1971, Takuma Nakahira was invited by the 7th Paris Biennale. He created an in situ project and made an exhibition in « real time »: everyday, he shot his life in Paris, developed the photographs and then exhibited them on the walls of the Biennale. As the walls became filled of photographs, the artist threw away the prints to be able to hang the new ones. This controversial project caused a disagreement with the organizers ans Nakahira had to cut short his process. His conceptual approach of showing the accumulation of images rather than one single picture already questioned the role of photography. The book Circulation: Date Place, Events is the reflect of this existentialist experience of the world.
