Miwa Yanagi achieved a breakthrough in the international art world with her photo series entitled Elevator Girls. Ever since 1992, individual and group exhibitions around the world have been presenting selections from this series, whose theme is the consumer culture of Japan.
The oeuvre of the photographer, who was born in 1967 in Kobe, focuses above all on the roles and images assigned to women in Japan. Miwa Yanagi’s new works in the series entitled My Grandmothers analyze the dreams of the future held by young people. Their personal visions of life in the year 2050 have been transformed into pictures and are accompanied by brief, poetically suggestive texts which arose out of conversations with the protagonists and which thereby create a further level of expression in addition to the photography.
Miwa Yanagi - Deutsche Bank Collection at Deutsche Guggenheim is the first solo exhibition of the Japanese artist by a museum in Germany. The show continues the series of presentations of works from the Deutsche Bank’s own collection.
