closed Masahisa Fukase. Private Scenes

The show

Curated by Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam in collaboration with Tomo Kosuga, director of the Masahisa Fukase Archives.

The Fondazione Sozzani presents “Masahisa Fukase, Private Scenes”, the first retrospective exhibition of the Japanese photographer in Italy, curated by Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam in collaboration with Tomo Kosuga, director of the Masahisa Fukase Archives. The life-work of Japanese photographer Masahisa Fukase (Hokkaido, 1934 – Tokyo, 2012) remained largely inaccessible for over two decades, following a tragic fall that left the artist with permanent brain damage. After his death the archives were gradually disclosed, revealing a wealth of material that had never been shown before. In this present large-scale retrospective that was presented at Foam in Amsterdam, will be shown original prints from Masahisa Fukase Archives in Tokyo. In addition to his seminal body of work Ravens, the exhibition contains a number of important photo series, publications and documentation dating from the early 1960s to 1992. Fukase incorporated his personal struggle with loss and depression into his work in a surprisingly playful manner. His subjects are personal and highly intimate: over the years, his wife Yoko, his dying father and his beloved cat Sasuke regularly featured in sometimes comical, at other times sombre visual narratives. Towards the end of this working life, the photographer increasingly turned the camera on himself. The huge number of self-portraits – precursors to today’s ubiquitous selfie – testifies to the singular, almost obsessive way that the artist related to his surroundings, and to himself.
