Monodramatic by Daisuke Takakura
- Caroline Kurze
With his series ‘Monodramatic’ Daisuke Takakura imagines how it would be to meet many versions of yourself, that might look identical while they actually had different ideas, dreams and goals in mind than yourself. In Takakura’s images, these personalities meet and even interact with one another. Some play games while others shy away from the crowd. Their revealing movements and facial expressions conjure dramatics, and Takakura’s title references the theater and acting – it means a piece that’s played by a single character.
