FOIL GALLERY is pleased to present Hiroyuki Takenouchi solo exhibition "SEASONS" from 12th February to 6th March. This will be his first solo exhibition at a gallery, and about 60, both small and large works he has produced over the past 7 years will be on view.
Since coming across with photography in his youth, Hiroyuki Takenouchi (b. 1982) has continuously and energetically produced his photographic works. From drag queens, his boyfriend to everyday scenes passing by, he carefully reacts to such encounters with his camera.
Earnestly taking the reality what the world and himself are, he is asking himself questions of "if I'm doing what I want to", "if I allow myself to be ruled by the trends and others' opinion" and "if I'm trying to be honest to myself". His artistic practice are devoted to those unanswerable questions, you may find unique feeling of levitation in his work, as well as mixed tensions of fear, nostalgia and love towards the idea of uniqueness- nothing can be the same as before. This may be compared with how we feel for the transience of seasons.
