Of all the exhibitions of her work held in Tokyo “Illuminance, Ametsuchi, Seeing Shadow” in 2012 at Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. It represents the “title piece” of this show comprising four series ranging from “The river embraced me” which unveiled at the exhibition of the same title that opened in 2016 at the Contemporary Art Museum, Kumamoto, “Search for the sun” shot in Austria for her exhibition at KUNST HAUS WIEN to unreleased very latest photo.
Common to all of Kawauchi’s works are “life” and “time,” and her observer’s eye, which is focused on the passage of time that is afforded equally to all living things, never wavers. While viewing the photographs, take a moment to savor the joy and evanescence contained in these words. This is a perfect vehicle for understanding her artistry. At Gallery 916 small next to the space, screening of new film.
