FOIL GALLERY is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of Rinko Kawauchi "Semear", starting from 24 April through 25 May 2008.

On the 28th April 2008, we will mark a 100 year anniversary of the day the first ship took Japanese immigrants on boad and set sailed from Kobe, headed for Brazil. To accompany this centennial, Kawauchi visited Brazil three times and had photographed the country over two years.
The title "Semear" is a Portugues word stands for "sowing seeds". in this series, Japanese Immigrants in Brazil, who have lived though cruel reality awaited in their settlement, are exquisitely portrayed. At the same time, not only the Japanese society, but also the immense power of Brazil,from a tiny creature on the indisputably huge and magnificent nature of the country, to the lively Rio de Janeiro's Carnival come together to vividly express Brazil'd cultural diversity.

Releasing overwhelming energy the country of Brazil has, this exhibition "Semear" will present every moments of Brazil, delicately captured by Rinko Kawauchi.
