Anat Parnass E Kanako Ikeda E Miu Kiuchi
Three-Person Exhibition



8 Aug - 24 Aug 2008
Open Everyday 12:00 -19:00
(except the opening day and sunday, close at 18:00)

We are pleased to announce a three-person exhibition by Anat Parnass, Kanako Ikeda and Miu Kiuchi, from 8th August (Fri) to 24th August (Sun) at FOIL GALLERY.
Following the two-person exhibition with Aya Saito and MAYUKO(S)MAYUKO(S)MAYUKO(S), this exhibition will be the second program of FOIL GALLERY to introduce the young but promising artists through our original choices.

An Israeli photographer Anat Parnass has been producing her works while studying at postgraduate university in Japan. Attracted by the unique colour, which single lens reflex wouldn't be able to captures, she started to take pictures with her mobile phone camera. The massive amount of photographs she takes as if she keeps her diary, expose her everyday life vividly and realistically.

Kanako Ikeda has repetedly visited Russia since she was university student, and has photographed the country through the rapport with the people living there. Without looking on the country from a biased viewpoint of "cold and dark", her photographs mildly portraying living in Russia will give rather calm and warm impression to the viewers.

Using digital camera, Miu Kiuchi has captured the surface of the object rather like abstract paintings. Her photographs display the familiar faces of, like the walls and rubbish bins on the road using everyday, however, the framed images make us realize "what we do not see", although we must be seeing them at all time. The texture is also clearly confronted to us.

Using different objects, approaches and cameras, the three artists of the same generation will present each unique expression of their own at FOIL GALLERY.
