#52 Keep an Eye Shut - Hanayo

12 May - 12 June 2022

IBASHO is proud to present the exhibition 'Keep an Eye Shut' by the Japanese female artist Hanayo (1970). Since the late 1980s Hanayo has pursued a multifaceted career encompassing the roles of geisha, model, actor, singer, performer, photographer and artist, developing an unconventional approach to expression based on a highly original worldview described by curator Jérôme Sans as “Hana-world.”  To mark the publication of Hanayo's latest book 'Keep an Eye Shut' covering thirty years of Hanayo’s photographic output, IBASHO will show works from her book spanning a period from 1990 until 2020.
