Exhibitions at CASE Rotterdam
May 11, Fri. — July 28, Sat.
CASE ROTTERDAM is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition of Takuma Nakahira’s series Overflow. Nakahira’s series Overflow was originally presented as an installation during the 1974 exhibition Fifteen Photographers Today (National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo). The work consisted of 48 color photographs that were arranged on a wall 6 meters wide and 1.6 meters high. The photographs show elements of a city - eery rifts in a space overflowing with objects, commodities and information - that Nakahira encountered and captured in his everyday life, from ivy creeping across walls and manhole covers in the streets
to the tire of a large truck, from a pale-bellied shark floating in the transparent darkness behind the glass of an aquarium to close-up shots of a subway station. The exhibition at CASE ROTTERDAM is held on occasion of the same-titled photobook release by Case Publishing, and aims to recreate Nakahira’s original installation by disassembling pages of photobook. We hope our exhibition of the series, 40 years after its creation, serves as a further chance to engage with Nakahira’s thinking and photographic practice.May 11, Fri. — July 28, Sat.Open: Thursday - Saturday / 12:00 - 18:00Closed on: Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays & holidays (Wednesday by appointment)
