Lieko Shiga: Canary
AMSTERDAM  •  foam  •  Ongoing

Foam presents the series Canary by the Japanese photographer Lieko Shiga. In her work Shiga combines local myths and stories from people with personal memories, emotions and experiences. She creates fantastic and often dramatic images which refer to the twilight between dreams and reality. Her obscure work is strongly rooted in the Japanese folkloristic tradition to present the supernatural as an obvious presence. Shiga belongs to a new generation of Japanese photographers, her photographs are characterized by a distinct use of light and colour with a powerful imagery, based on her own fantasy.
