Eikoh Hosoe artist lecture
Eikoh Hosoe’s traditional photo scrolls creating a new artistic dimension
Hosoe is one of Japan’s most internationally recognised photographers. His work pushed the boundaries of traditional photography by integrating dance and theatre into photographic essays that lie between reality and fiction. His interactions with the novelist Yukio Mishima and with the leading figures of butoh dance Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno have formed the basis for his most celebrated series. In this lecture he discusses his use of the latest digital technology to print his photographs on washi paper. By mounting the prints in the traditional Japanese manner as scrolls and folding screens he suggests a new way of ‘reading’ his series as a continuous narrative.
This lecture is part of the Arts of Asia series Innovasian: Asian art 1960s to now.
