> DESCRIPTION

The works presented in the exhibition 'Steam and Ice' represent two bodies of work by Japanese-born photographer Hiroyo Kaneko taken in her native Japan, including her hometown of Aomori.  In these works, routine traditions in Japan such as the bath and shoveling snow reveal a more complex relationship to water, family and community. Contemplating the states of water is especially relevant today in the wake of Japan’s recent Tsunami and other natural and man-made disasters.  The photographs presented in this exhibition, Steam & Ice, speak to the physicality and varying transformative expressions of water.
