Here, No Balloon

May 12 - June 10
Yuki Onodera

Having been based in Paris for the past three decades, the internationally renowned Japanese artist’s (b. 1962) works are shown in Hong Kong for the first time. Known for her singular experimental pieces in the medium of photography, she also employs large canvases of varying sizes and drip painting techniques to convey her message. The inspiration behind the exhibition was the bronze hot air balloon monument created by French sculptor, Bartholdi, whose sculpture was located in Paris but was destroyed in the 1940s. Also on display will be other new and master works offering insight into one side of this artist’s incredibly broad practice.

Onodera is an artist and photographer who is known for her experimental style. Her experimental works do not fit within schemas of ‘photography’; they often pose two questions: what is photography, and what can be done through it? She uses any possible method to realise her works, whether this means taking photographs with a marble inside her camera, or creating a story out of a legend and travelling to the ends of the earth to shoot it. In pushing boundaries, she succeeds in relaying many of her ideas, many inspired by her background and her current city, Paris.
