Tomoko Sawada "FACIAL SIGNATURE"

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

We are delighted to share a few images sent to us by Tomoko Sawada of her new work Facial Signature now on view at MEM in Tokyo.

The face is a signature that with singular particularity signals one’ s identity. Even if a person’s body type approximates someone else’ s whom you know, you will not recognize the person precisely until you glimpse the face. Both nationality and race enhance the precision, but otherwise they do not alter the inherent act of processing perceptions. With intended irony to engender confusion, I re-state that we human beings share 99.99999% of the same genes. All of us despite having different types of so-called “added cultural values—such as nationality, race, religion, and language - are by nature and essence equal to one another.

The genesis of the project Facial Signature grew out of my experience in New York City over a number of years. There were many political problems of different East Asian nations, but I didn’t pay attention to them and made friends with diverse people. At one point while there I had an epiphany, realizing that others were not necessarily seeing me as Japanese. I was told at various times that I looked Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, Singaporean, Mongolian, et cetera (and only occasionally Japanese). This made me consider the intuitive process by which people achieve cognition of true or false archetypes. Following this trick logic and to discover what I could (and “could not”) be or become transformed myself 300 times to look like a variety of East Asian women.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am happy to make you aware of some exciting changes coming our way this Spring. Following a tenure of approximately 10 years at ROSEGALLERY, under the superb guidance of Rose and my colleagues in the arts industry, I will be opening a project space on the Bergamot Station campus. Rose and I are enthusiastic about the creative cross-pollination this move makes possible and we look forward to many fruitful collaborations. The project space, located in the middle of the B Building along Olympic Boulevard, will provide a fun, new context for some of the artists with whom I currently work and a vibrant exhibition space for emerging artists working across disciplines. This opportunity will also allow me to remain connected to the Bergamot community, to Rose, and to the artists I have been devoted to for so many years, while embarking on independent endeavors.

My last full day at ROSEGALLERY is Friday, March 6th, and at 11am Saturday, March 7th, doors open at SLOAN PROJECTS. I encourage everyone to come say hello and make B5 one of your Bergamot Station destinations. I hope it goes without saying that the company I have kept while at ROSEGALLERY is unparalleled in the world of photography and I am honored to have worked with the caliber of artists, curators, dealers and collectors this gallery attracts. I am looking forward to a new chapter that keeps me connected to all of you.

Very Best Wishes,
HANNAH SLOAN
