Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris
We are pleased to announce that Daisuke Yokota's work Inversion (2015) is now part of the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris' permanent collection. The work consists in a set of 56 unique solarized gelatin silver prints, each 35,6x27,9 cm, overall dimensions variable (here: 252x224 cm), mounted onto wall with magnets.
Daisuke Yokota's practice consists in constantly revisting his own photographs by adding layers of 'accidents', as he puts them, in order to metaphorically signify the superimposition of states of consciousness and memories. Often referring to the concept of echo and reverb, Yokota also establishes links between visual and musical field by questioning, for instance, the duration of a fixed image. Inversion is an installation composed of a multitude of unique black and white solarized photographs. Each print is a transposition by contact on a photosensitive paper of photographs originally printed in Yokota's artist's books entitled Matter (waxed) (2014-2015), whose pages are used as positives.
