IZIMA KAORU, Kimura Yoshino wears Alexander McQueen
Izima Kaoru, born in 1954 in Kyoto, lives and works in Tokyo.
Between fashion, cinema, and visual art , Landscape with a Corpse, the project undertaken by Japanese artist Izima Kaoru (born in 1954) creates scenes of sophisticated violence and enchanting horror. From 1993 to 2008, the Kyoto photographer invited actresses and models to reveal to him their fantasies about a perfect death: above all he asked them which designer clothes they would like to wear when they died. And so the photos that show the crime scene (or that of natural death) do not allude to something fatal and irreversible but a kind of elegant and highly aesthetic ceremony.
Also exhibited at Studio la Città since the extraordinary solo show in 2006, these photographs – usually large-format – have ensured the artist a worldwide fame.
