Hiroshi Sugimoto: Surface Tension
October 28 - December 22, 2017

Marian Goodman Gallery is delighted to announce the first double gallery exhibition of Hiroshi Sugimoto’s work, internationally acclaimed for exploring the concept of time through the employment of classical black and white photography.

In the London gallery, Sugimoto will exhibit a capsule overview of his Theater Series, which first began in 1976. This series is a collection of images of theatres and movie screens with the goal of capturing an entire film in a single photographic exposure, raising the question of how we see and what remains in our visual memory after the passage of time. The exhibition in Paris will be devoted to his iconic “Seascape” series, including a group of new images of the Tasman Sea. Since 1980, Sugimoto has been photographing the sky and the sea using the same process (shooting from dry land looking out towards the sea) in changing weather conditions and at multiple locations around the world.

Born in 1948 in Tokyo, having studied economics in Japan, in 1974 Hiroshi Sugimoto ventured to the United States to study Fine Arts as a post graduate. He lives in New York and Tokyo. A multidisciplinary artist, Sugimoto works with photography, sculpture, installation intervention and has expanded his practice to formal architecture. He has also produced and directed performing art piece for the theatre. His most recent exhibitions include: La Notti Bianche, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Torino, Italy (2017); Seascapes-Atami, MOA Museum of Art, Atami, Japan (2017); FOAM Fotografiemuseum, Amsterdam, Netherlands (2016); Aujourd'hui, le monde est mort, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France (2014); Past Tense, The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, USA (2014); Hiroshi Sugimoto, Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul, South Korea (2013).
