Flowers Bloom, Butterflies Come (IIKKI 014) is the result of a dialog between the Japanese photographer Miho Kajioka and the UK musicians and composers Craig Tattersall and Ian Hawgood (Observatories) initiated by IIKKI between August 2019 and January 2021. The complete project works in two physical imprints: a book and a disc (vinyl or cd). it should be experienced in different ways : the book read alone, the disc listened to alone, the book and the disc read and listened to together. __________________________________________________________________________ Miho Kajioka (b. 1973, Japan, lives in Kyoto) is an artist and a photographer since 2011. « Kajioka's artistic practice is in principal snapshot based; she carries her camera everywhere and intuitively takes photos of whatever she finds interesting. These collected images serve as the basic material for her work in the darkroom where she creates her poetic and suggestive image-objects through elaborate, alternative printing methods. Kajioka regards herself more as a painter/ drawer than as a photographer. She feels that photographic techniques help her to create works that fully express her artistic vision. Her images evoke a sense of mystery in her constant search for beauty. The focused, creative and respectful way in which she uses the medium of photography to creating her works seems to fit in the tradition of Japanese art that is characterized by the specifically Japanese sense of beauty, wabi sabi. (…) According to her, photography captures moments and freezes them; printing impressions is like playing with the sense of time and getting lost in its timeline. » (Ibasho Gallery) Kajioka’s work has been exhibited in Spain, Italy, France, the Netherlands, the USA, Germany, Belgium, Portugal and the United Kingdom. Kajioka’s latest book ‘so it goes’ won Prix Nadar in October 2019.
