‘MATTER / BURN OUT’ is an extension of the work ‘Matter’ which was exhibited in Xiamen in 2015, 70 years after the war between Japan and China. Once the exhibition had come to a close, the work was burnt in the, once again, vacant space in the area. This ‘burn out’ process was documented in 4,000 photographs, whereby the data was processed, manipulated and revived to form a brand new, large scale work called “MATTER / BURN OUT”, and edited to this book.
Daisuke Yokota was winner of the Foam Paul Huf Award 2016 and has an exhibition at Foam from 17 March until 4 June 2017.
