24. May - 23. June
As an only child growing up in Japan, Izumi Miyazaki often let her imagination roam free. What began as simple snapshots of herself, have in time become refined pieces of art, carefully planned down to every last detail. With her signature bob haircut, Izumi Miyazaki pops up everywhere in her photos; floating, split in half, and multiplied in settings that should all look familiar, but that have been transfigured by her surrealistic, grotesque and ironically humorous outlook. Miyazaki’s focus on the self is at the same time a satirical take on her own selfie obsessed SNS generation as well as an evolution of the longstanding photographic genre of self-portraiture.
Izumi Miyazaki (1994) graduated from Musashino Art University in 2016. While still a student she began posting self-portrait photographs on Tumblr, gaining an instant crowd of followers. In 2016 she had her first solo exhibition at Wild Project Gallery in Luxembourg. Following an exhibition at Art-U room, Tokyo and as a participant in the Fondazione Prada hosted group show Give Me Yesterday. More recently in 2018 she was selected to take part in the Kyotographie International Photography Festival, and published her first book Me And Me by Seigensha Publishing. Her work has been featured in Time, Libération, and CNN among others, and she has collaborated with numerous fashion brands, including Valentino. Izumi Miyazaki’s first solo show in Scandinavia will open later in May this year at Fotogalleri Vasli Souza, Malmö, Sweden.
