Asako Narahashi's Coming Closer and Getting Further Away



I'm a huge fan of Asako Narahashi's work. Her book Half Asleep and Half Awake In The Water is one I've turned to many times over the last two years (my copy is was signed by the artist at an opening here in NY, but ironically was waterstained by one of my kids a few hours later). Ms. Narahashi is now showing a new related body of work titled Coming Closer and Getting Further Away which she bills as the "oversees version" of Half Asleep. These photos taken in Dubai, Paris, Korea, Brooklyn, Taiwan, and Germany are infused with her signature lyricism, but unfortunately the full project isn't available online. You can see some images from Dubai here and from Korea here. (via japan foto info)

Saw her show at Yossi Milo and loved it. I googled a little and found that a booklet of this show is available in an edition of 1000 from the Tokyo Museum: http://www.osiris.co.jp/e/ccgf_e.html. It's only about $15
