Kimiko Yoshida

We know and recognize almost directly the monochrome self-portraits of Kimiko Yoshida, these large square format photographs with subtle light: her signature since 2001. The artist, who sees in the monochrome a figure of infinity, conceives the self-portrait as sort of disappearance, fully conditioned by the experience of transformation, her art develops a contemporary reflection on voluntary servitude, the stereotypes of gender and determinism of heredity. "Art is a delicate operation of transposition, an assiduous struggle against the state of things. Be where I do not think I can, disappear from where I think I am, this is what’s important. "

Her new series of photographs, majestic and indecipherable portraits conceived in the memory of the history of art, is called “Painting. Self-portrait.” This symbolic transposition of masterpieces by old masters in large print on canvas is essentially based on using in diverse ways the haute couture clothes and accessories by Paco Rabanne.
