REIKO IMOTO

WINGS OF TIME

1. 10. – 4. 11. 2010

Reiko Imoto was born and grew up in Kobe, Japan. In 2002 she graduated with MFA in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design, USA. Since 2004 she lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Reiko has a unique eye and her works look mysterious and surreal, yet the subject matter that she captures are from her everyday life. Inspired by her own inner reality, subconscious world, dreams, stories, music, poetry, and every single ordinary thing she sees that give her many perspectives. Her photographs reveal questions about seeing „realities“ rather than answers. The “Wings of Time” exhibition consists of two projects: “Time Traveler’s Diary” and the photo collage project “Fly, flew, flown”. This is Reiko’s first show in Prague and the second in the Czech Republic after Cheb in 2009. Since 1993 Reiko has had 23 solo and 24 group exhibitions worldwide. Reiko’s series of work, entitled „Dreamscapes“ has been exhibited in more than 11 countries (18 cities) between 2005 and 2010. Her first monograph catalogue under the same name was published in 2007. She has won several grants and awards including the Best Portfolio Award at the „International Portfolio Review“ in Bratislava, Slovakia in 2004. www.reikoimoto.com
