Unión de...Interactional Casa Barragán
Working with a varety of media, including film, performance art as well as photography, Noritoshi Hirakawa explores the suggestive, often sensual relationship between man and architecture in his latest solo exhibition. The Christopher Guye Galerie is featuring 40 black and white silver gelatin prints taken at the Casa Barragán -designed by renowned Mexican architect Luis Barragán, who was known to incoporate personal experiences and memories into his work, resulting in what he referrred to as ‘emotional architecture’.
Noritoshi Hirakawa’s architectural photography provides an intriguing representation of space and man’s physical and emotional role therein. Incorporating Barrgán’s own emotional response and involvement with his work, Hirakawa fuses man, space and emotion, suggesting the notion that as much as man may shape and define his surroundings, space can, likewise, mould man.
