....Exhibition at Polka Galerie in Paris..展覧会『Terre des îles』| パリ・ポルカギャラリー.... by Kosuke Okahara


....Some of the works from the latest series "Rhapsody in the dark" will be exhibited as a part of collective show at Polka Galerie in Paris.

One of my works exhibited is with 90 prints all printed by my hands in the darkroom with traditional technic put together in 120x80cm frame. This will be the unique edition.

The collective exhibition "Land of the Islands",  conceived as a photographic trip around the theme of insularity. The invited photographers will dialogue for the occasion, exploring the roots and the poetic identity of a series of universes open on the ocean but curled up on themselves. Tiny pitches, islands-continent. Secret atolls, languages of the earth. From the largest island in the world - Greenland - to the Island of Beauty - Corsica - through the Cyclades, Sicily, Iceland, Stromboli, Okinawa, the Faroe Islands and Lofoten, Madagascar, New Guinea , Hokkaido and the Galapagos, the walls of Polka are transformed into an archipelago.

The exhibition is there until March 3rd, 2018. Please stop by Polka Galerie if you are in Paris.

....Artists' books exhibition opening in Munich..アーティストブック展覧会 | ミュンヘン・バイエルン州立図書館 by Kosuke Okahara


....Attended the opening of the exhibition on Art Books at Bavarian State Library / Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich.

Vanishing Existence (scroll one) is a part of this show as it is a part of their collection. it's quite amazing to see the book I made next to Picasso... 

The exhibition continues until Janaury 2018. Please visit if you happen to be in Munich. Putting myself aside, it's an amazing collection of Art books, not only photography but the works of historical artists.

Big thanks to Beatrice Hernad, the curator of the libarary and the show and her colleagues !
