“Keiichi Tahara’s work belongs to the Japanese ancestral tradition (…) everything is always a question of transition, of movement, of modulation in intensity. The inside, the outside, black, white, nature, culture are not opposed in an antagonistic manner but are linked in a star pattern one to the other (…) Keiichi Tahara’s diagrams are like machines which decompose the common notion of forms and projects us into universes of troubling strangeness and unfamiliar intimacy that have no clear frontier. (…) Instead of the viewer looking at the photograph, it is suddenly the photograph which surprises the viewer, scrutinizing him, questioning him and penetrating him to the depth of his soul.” — Keiichi Tahara’s Machinations of Light, Felix Guattari
While the two lights are blended and fused in the work of IN-BETWEEN, the strata of the past and the traces of memory, i.e. the socially and culturally constructed values of the objects photographed, are deconstructed and illuminated by Tahara’s sensibilities. They infinitely resonates, disperses and produces new meanings and sensibilities one after another as if the light is diffused by a prism. IN-BETWEEN therefore can be construed as a conceptual space where memories of human beings intersect and encounter each other.
