Noritoshi Hirakawa
Japanese, b. 1960
Follow

Noritoshi Hirakawa’s photographs, films, and performances confront the repressive constraints of social mores, subverting polite behavior to model alternative social relations. “I think it is very important to create an environment, a natural place for emotion to come out. . . . It’s a great time to have a new discourse because people are interested in evolving their consciousness,” Hirakawa has said. Hirakawa’s photographs express sexual taboos and negative emotions considered inappropriate for public expression. His 1999 photograph Tanja’s World mimics Andrew Wyeth’s famous painting Christina’s World (1948), featuring a woman crawling across a large field toward a house. The image communicates desperation and longing, and it creates a space for these emotions to play out in an otherwise emotionally numb public sphere.
