motoyuki daifu



Motoyuki Daifu will present a series of 20 images, printed in the same size, of his now ironically iconic Mother in the act of peeling an onion in a now equally iconic kitchen. An otherwise everyday act is presented through the particular photographic point of view of the artist.

Motoyuki Daifu’s (born, 1985, Kanagawa) recent exhibitions include the Nissan Art Award (2017), BankART, Yokohama, Japanese Photography -Postwar to Now, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Imprisoned Jailbreak, Cafe Sunday, Tokyo (both 2016). In 2014, Daifu’s work was presented at the Victoria and Albert Museum as part of Consumption, the Prix Pictet finalist exhibition. In 2018, Daifu collaborated with French writer Michel Howellbecq on the publication Hypermarché – Novembre; additional books include the 2016 Newfave publication Still Life, Project Family (2013), Dashwood Books and Lovesody (2012) Little Big Man.
