Tomoko Sawada graduated from Seian University of Art and Design and is known for works such as "ID400" in which she transforms herself into 400 different persons, or "OMIAI" where she tackles Japanese tradition of arranged marriages in which photo albums of a potential soon-to-be-bride are presented to prospective families. By showing herself in so many situations and possibilities, she invites viewers to think about common existing ambiguities between appearance and personality. Her new serie "Decoration", presented at colette, is really about Japanese fashion, especially among Tokyo-Harajuku’s young generation. This will be her first show in France, during the Paris-Photo Japan special event.
All 4 sold out books by Tomoko Sawada will be available at colette, as well as t-shirts by Lammfromm.
Signature November 14th, 6pm.
