Are they still here
by Yoshiaki Inoue Gallery
Location: Yoshiaki Inoue Gallery
Artist(s): Hiroko INOUE
Date: 12 Apr - 24 May 2014

Hiroko Inoue is the contemporary artist working in Japan, Germany and Austria since 1992. Earthquake in Hanshin and Awaji in 1995 led him to work based on suffering of isolated people's minds or a boundary making people distant in each other, and windows at psychiatric wards in the world. 

On the second floor of the gallery, 'Mori' series expresses wonderful and overwhelming power of nature, natural light and shadow and a link between life and death through forests in Japan and Germany so that it shows what people have delivered to the next generation coexisting with nature. 

For 'Omni-Presence' series on the third floor, Inoue created a traces of spirit or life of forgotten people in Japan and Germany, who lived in the consumer society pursuing economic growth after the Second World War, and the series asks how people can understand others and be connected with each other via a boundary, a window.
