Roman Road is participating at Sunday Art Fair 2018 with a solo booth by Japanese artist Daisuke Yokota.
Our stand will specially feature a collection of Yokota’s recent experimental works, through which he investigates the chemical reactions caused by exposing photographic emulsions. For these pieces, Yokota employs copious amounts of light-sensitive colloids and liberally paints photographic papers before exposing them to light. These large-scale and intensely black photographs are distinguished by small variations that only become apparent on close viewing.
The display will also present Yokota’s Inversion (2015) – a collection of solarised silver gelatin prints – as well as a selection of the artist’s recent and very rare photobooks, which will be exclusively available for sale at Roman Road’s booth during the fair.
