Exhibited at Carrousel du Louvre in collaboration with MIHARAYASUHIRO for Paris Fashion Week
The motif, the 19 century painting “Ophelia” by Sir John Everett Millais, was photographed by Paolo Roversi, and then implemented into a visual installation. Through “shadow” interaction, we pursued an expression whereby the audience crosses between reality and imagination, like the world of “Ophelia” where life and death coexist.
About the Exhibition
The beautiful painting world of Ophelia was displayed on the wall. Expanding into the space where the audience is standing. The shadows of flowers ephemerally fall into the exhibition space, and then float into the picture on a carrying wind. The shadow reflects butterflies, forest and a river that should not be there. Impressions of light affect the picture. The tears that Ophelia sheds fall through the picture, as a window to the outside world, and disappear into the surrounding space.
