Untitled (Extra Inversion)
black and white solarised gelatin-silver print on RC paper
Beautiful unique prints made by Daisuke Yokota during his performance Extra Inversion in 2015 in Paris. As part of this collaborative and musical performance, Yokota made by hand about one hundred black and white solarized prints, reiterating his project Inversion. Each print comes in a silkscreened envelope with a signed certificate of authenticity.
Presented for the first time during the Rencontres d'Arles festival, France, in 2015, Inversion is an installation composed of numerous black and white solarized photographs. Each print is a transposition by contact on photosensitive paper of a color photograph initially printed in Yokota's artist's books entitled Matter (waxed) (2014-2015), the pages of which are thus used as negatives.
