This solo exhibition by new media artist Hanako Murakami features works inspired by the autochrome color photography process, which was used in the early 1900s. Based in Paris, Murakami is heavily influenced by her in-depth research of historical media including photographic techniques and letterpress printing.
For this series she studied the autochrome technique, which was patented by the Lumière brothers in 1903 and used potato starch colored in red, blue and green. To create the images, she used century-old autochrome plates, comparing them to the retina in that they are “a space that images pass through”.
Please note: The gallery is closed on Sundays, Mondays and national holidays.
