From April 2nd, IACK will hold a collection exhibition of artist books collected by IACK, "IACK Collection".
In this first installment, we will be featuring artist books created by Seiichi Furuya, a Japanese photographer living in Austria.
Furuya is best known for his series Mémoires, which deals with his late wife, but has produced many other excellent works. In this exhibition, Mémoires , which may have been overlooked due to its overly dramatic nature, will focus on an aspect of the artist and his expressions that will be explored through photography. Exploring the possibility of “telling a story.”
In addition to IACK's collection of early and recent works, the artist's latest publication "First Trip To Bologna 1978 / Last Trip To Venice 1985" will also be on sale. . Please come and visit us at this opportunity.
