Moriyama Daido: Polaroid

1 September - 10 October 2020

Each Modern is pleased to present “Moriyama Daido: Polaroid,” an online exhibition that reintroduces the polaroid works by key figure of Japanese contemporary photography Moriyama Daido. Through the intimate exposures of this classic medium, we see a splintered piece of Moriyama’s cityscape in nostalgic tones, transforming object, image, sign, and even self, into a photograph.

Polaroids send us down an altogether different path in Moriyama’s oeuvre, one where each photograph exists as an artifact, a trace in his journey through the urban jungle. Lost personal effects, hostess bar street signs, and a tapestry of city-textures are recorded and indexed, like evidence in an investigation. With “Moriyama Daido: Polaroid,” a new exhibition in Each Modern’s online viewing room, the meandering views of Moriyama’s central subject, the city, come together like pieces in an incomplete puzzle.

One of the last living post-war masters of photography, Moriyama Daido’s practice seeks to question and redefine the premise of the photographed image. In 2008, Polaroid ceased manufacturing its once-ubiquitous instant film. As an homage to this iconic medium, which the artist has used relentlessly, Moriyama created “bye-bye polaroid,” a final send-off to this format. Now in 2020, we reencounter this intimate and instantaneous popular medium of photography. In these color Polaroids, Moriyama explores fragmented urban spaces of his native Japan.

“Moriyama Daido: Polaroid” is a companion exhibition to “Pop Noir” Each Modern’s concurrent gallery exhibition of Moriyama’s silkscreen on canvas prints that present the Provoke member’s Pop Art inflected images in the textures of paint on canvas. Together, both exhibitions complement each other in presenting the multifaceted praxis of an artist ceaselessly interested in exploring and pushing the limits of photography.
