OGATA Paris is pleased to present the exhibition, “CHAOS” by photographer Mikiya Takimoto from November 8th to 26th 2023.
Since ancient times, the world has been shaped by the abundance, fusion and circulation of all life, natural and human, in the uninterrupted flow of time.
As a photographer, Mikiya Takimoto has endeavored to capture the essence and breath of the Earth as a single living organism. He has traveled to the farthest reaches of the planet in search of this purest form of our world. During the pandemic, he came face to face with the microcosms that make up our immediate environment. His gaze, from predominately macroscopic, shifted to the infinitely small. On closer inspection, the smallest of worlds resembles the immensity of the universe in its infinite expanse, which also echoes the depths of the mind.
In addition to the “GRAIN OF LIGHT”, “FLAME”, “SURFACE” and “SNOW MOUNTAIN” series, which respectively capture the changing faces of the sea and depict the serene majesty of elements such as volcanoes, snow-covered or sandy mountains, discover at this exhibition his latest series “EN SO SHIN”, which focuses on floral compositions, a temple facing a pond and other scenes of secret prayer.
Everything contains a piece of the universe within it, and all life evolves, connected to and surrounded by others.
