Komatsu Hiroko: Second Decade
October 27–December 10, 2022

Around the globe in recent years, the Japanese photographer Komatsu Hiroko has become known for her experimental installations that transform traditional gallery spaces into worlds of monochrome. Building on recent iterations of this work at dieFirma in New York City and the Davis Museum at Wellesley College, the exhibition Komatsu Hiroko: Second Decade combines the artist’s immersive photographic environments with work in a variety of other media, including handmade artist books, drawings and photograms, and 8-mm film. Everything on view was made since the year 2020, the start of Komatsu’s second decade as a committed photographer. In all cases, Komatsu pushes the materials that she is working with to their limits, asking important questions about how we produce, consume, and share knowledge—and what might be taken for granted in the process.

Komatsu Hiroko (b. 1969 Kangawa, Japan) is an award-winning artist who has held exhibitions in Japan, Germany, Italy, and the U.S. Her work has been published in Aperture, Asahi Camera, Artforum, and PHaT Photo, among other journals, monographs, and exhibition catalogues. In 2018, she was the recipient of the 43rd Kimura Ihei Award for new photographers in Japan. Her work is held in the collections of The MAST Foundation in Bologna, Tate Modern in London, the Kawasaki City Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the New York Public Library.

Komatsu Hiroko: Second Decade will be on view at Joseloff Gallery from October 27–December 10, 2022, with an opening reception with the artist on Thursday, October 27 from 5–7 p.m. The gallery will be closed for the week of Thanksgiving.
