Michiko Kon: Still Lifesby Michiko Kon, Ryu Murakami, Toshiharau Ito
Michiko Kon: Still Lifes. Photography by Michiko Kon. Introduction by Ryu Murakami; Afterword by Toshiharu Ito. Michiko Kon: Still Lifes presents a unique artist's photographs of the impossible objects she has created in her studio. Kon skillfully creates a permanent record of impermanent objects: a garter belt fashioned from fish: a pair of melons covered with octopus tentacles: a midcalf boot made of shrimp, among many other nondelectables. An exhibition is currently touring worldwide. 64 duotone and 4 fourcolor photographs, 10 3/8 X 13, 124 pages. paperback;
"Michiko Kon doesn't disguise the impermanence of her objects. Instead, she delicately balances the fragility of her sculpture with a substantial photographic technique capable of remarkably subtle distinctions of texture and tone."
"What Michiko Kon does with the natural and quotidian speaks volumes about life and death."
