LINGER

Daisuke Yokota

Out of stock

Below the water’s surface, two bodies, one room: in a sort of Flatland of the mind, transfigured by Daisuke’s vision, bones and skins diminished their weights, hungering for their shapes. Daisuke chases the time, adorns visionary landscapes with dust and erotism, lingers on the steamed glass, still breathing.

TEIKAI trilogy:

the kanji writing of TEIKAI has many meanings. One of the them is “to linger”, to stay a bit longer. Another meaning is: to wander at midnight. When taken out of context there’s no way to tell which is the intended meaning, starting from this ambiguity of language and word Daisuke Yokota’s started working on the TEIKAI trilogy, currently a work in progress. There’s no way to know where this midnight wandering will lead.

Daisuke Yokota, 1983, Japan.

He came to international attention through his zines in which he used the process of rephotographing the pictures with different means (both analogue and digital) up to ten times, adding analog noise to the image and creating new layers, thus re-creating a highly personal haunting world of shadows and light.

His aleatory process is partly inspired by electronic music experiments of artists such as Aphex Twin and Alvin Lucier, Yokota created a darkrooom / image making factory at his house where he experiments with chemicals, film and copy machines, every step of this multi-layered process of distorsion moves the images further from the original, up to the point of confusion between positive and negative.
His ethereal and haunting imageries opens up alien landscapes for the eye of the Viewer to be explored.

Daisuke Yokota is part of the international photo collective AM projects.
Listed in BJP’s 2014 list of “ones to watch” and in FOAM talent issue 2013.
Daisuke Yokota’s exhibition “Site + Cloud” at FOAM, Amsterdam (organized as part of the Outset |Unseen Exhibition Fund), opens on 15 May.
