Children’s Workshop – playing with Shadow and Light at Nagakute Japan

15 Parent’s and children participated and enjoyed the workshop program in conjunction with the exhibition at Nagakute. The children were set a task to further create from the exhibition itself. The task was to choose their favorite photo with the questionnaire sheet, then think on their own and inflate their projection. From this they created some narrative and then cut the shapes for Shadowgraph onto the photographs in the exhibition. The workshop provided the experience of process in making and room for the unexpected surprise results.

Exhibition: Naoko Yogo ‘Granada’/ Kandada, Tokyo

The Naoko Yogo ‘Granada’ Exhibition toured from London to Tokyo at the Kandada, this was her 3rd solo show in Japan. However after shooting the photos at the rural southern Spain, the artist herself never saw those images again and the prints were processed and developed posthumously. Many old her friends supported this show, and a new audience appreciated her work.
This was the beginning of Allotment Art Project and the ideas grew from the people involved in this show.

3 December 2009 – 31 January 2010

Exhibition: Naoko Yogo ‘Granada’/ Chelsea Future Space, London

Naoko Yogo’s ‘Granada’ is a selection from a series of previously unseen black and white photographs. After the shooting of each frame in some 40 rolls of film the artist herself never saw those images again and the prints have been processed and developed posthumously. In ‘Granada’ Yogo looks at the landscape of rural southern Spain from a specific viewpoint. That view is wholly isolated but yet not lonely and the landscape itself objectified, almost abstracted, through a consideration of scale and the choice of the monochromatic. Yogo travelled alone with her camera and what she offers the viewer through her images is as much about contemplative reflection on the self and one’s own internal spaces as about the topographical and the lyricism of place.
