My book "Innuendo" made with Kio Griffith

In February 2018, my solo exhibition "Innuendo" was held at Gallery Lara Tokyo, Japan. In this exhibition, I exhibited my work "Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy" following Los Angeles, Marseille, Strasbourg, also my first photo book "Innuendo" which LA based artist Kio Griffith edited and designed. At the venue, you could buy a copy of it.



This exhibition had many tricks. In the main venue, the audience could enjoy the installation of my work "Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy" which imitated a part of the musical score of the main theme for the film "Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy".


Also at the second venue just next to the main venue, there was a small bookshelf which had many props, a bottle of Gin, a gun, lighters, a bullet, chess pieces, a small notebook and etc. These props were symbols of the main characters in the film and had secreted QR codes in its behind. The audiences could access the recorded audio files by scanning the QR codes. The audio files were spoken lines of each character by my friends from all around the world. Thank you for your corporations, Adam Davies, Dawn Miller, Irina PopovaJens Lucking and Lee Johnson.



And there was a phone shaped speaker above the bookshelf. The audiences could a song through the phone speaker just the same as the film.

At the second venue, there was another project "Cacco", book curation project. It was the first edition of "Cacco" by Takamitsu Yamamoto who is known as writer, game creator, book navigator. He made a book selection related to the novel  "Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy" by John Le Carr. All books had his handmade plain book covers with symbolic words as titles like a quiz, which remind the audiences of the contents of the books. The book order started with "London" and ended with "Moscow", two important cities in the film "Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy".

Also at the second venue, I exhibited some of my former work "The Long Goodbye". The way of the exhibition was unlike I showed the same work before in Los Angeles in 2017. All photos were framed, it was like a remix of the same tune for me.


And I put my old work "Taste of Play Biting" which I showed at "MAT, Mihara Arte en el Templo" in Mihara, Hiroshima, 2014.
