All That's Not Me: Kimiko Yoshida, PhotographsFebruary 2, 2006-April 29, 2006
Location: Nathan Cummings Building for Modern and Contemporary Art
Artist: Kimiko Yoshida
Curator: Nissan Perez
Born in Tokyo and residing in Paris, Kimiko Yoshida worked for a month in the Museum's collections, using a multitude of artifacts to create enigmatic self-portraits in which she serves as a supporting prop rather than the central subject. Simultaneously vulnerable and inaccessible, she maintains a precarious balance between reality and fantasy, paradoxically combining self-obliteration with the exile's perennial quest for roots and identity.
