Boek Japan Works - Aglaia Konrad & Julian Worral (B-070-2-58)
The photografic work of Aglaia Konrad is driven by her interest in urbanity and architecture in particular. Hers is a comparative practice with a full appreciation of every possible experience of the local. After some initial visits in 1994 and 2010, she was inspired to undertake a more profound research trip across central Japan in September 2019, mainly in search of Metabolist projects. That historical, iconic architecture also provided an excuse to explore the surrounding unspecific, non-iconic urban setting with the same intensity.
In this bok, free associations of full-page photographs alternate with contact sheets documenting the chronology of this latest itinerary. These are illuminated by texts written by architect and Japan scholar Julian Worral.
