Surreal Reconstructed Images By Yuchi Ikehata

Japanese artist Yuchi Ikehata’s works traverse physical and digital dimensions, inviting reflection upon the blurred divide between illusion and reality.

Entitled ‘Fragment of Long Term Memory’, Ikehata’s ongoing series of works combines wire, clay and paper sculpture, his own body – painted white – and landscape and portrait photography. In a statement about her work, the artist says, “Many parts of our memories are often forgotten, or difficult to recall. I retrieve those fragmented moments and reconstruct them as surreal images. I gather these misplaced memories from certain parts of our reality, and together they create a non-linear story, resonating with each other in my photographs.”
