‘M/E’ showcases the essence of Rinko Kawauchi’s oeuvre through work from the past decade combined with never-before-seen images from her archives. It is grounded in a new series the photographer began in 2019 comprised of Icelandic volcanoes and ice floes and the snowy landscapes of Hokkaido, Japan, juxtaposed alongside everyday scenes from the Covid-19 pandemic. In this exhibition catalogue, Kawauchi composes a sequence that allows her audience to relive the three-dimensional exhibition space. By altering the format and paper for each series, the book becomes a multi-layered volume that embodies the depth of her poetic style, despite its ordinary binding.
