A same-sex couple and their child form a new portrait of the family
The photographer Eiki Mori has investigated the line between the personal and the public in such work as “intimacy” (2014), a photo-book that used his own lovers and friends as models. The subject of this new work is developed from his series “Wedding Politics” (2013‚Äì16), featuring photographs of same-sex couples on the streets of the city. Mori will now zoom in further on today‚Äôs concepts of “family” by ostensibly starting his own with another man, a scenario that will be explored through a short film, talk, and exhibits showing the film being made.
Talk: Resonating Family
Speakers: Eiki Mori (photographer), Mai Endo (actor, artist, Nijyuni-kai)
Moderator: Miho Sakurai (dramaturge)
Date: 11/3 (Fri) 18:00-19:30
Venue: Owlspot Theatre (Meeting Room B)
Today there are many kinds of partnerships in addition to the conventional form of marriage. Photographer Eiki Mori, who has conceived, directed and performed this work, is joined by the actor and artist Mai Endo, who is also appearing in the F/T in the City Performances Series, to discuss new concepts of family as well as the past and future of marriage.
Born in Ishikawa in 1976, Eiki Mori won the Kimura Ihei Award for “intimacy” in 2014. His other photo-books include “Crows and Pearls” (2009) and “tokyo boy alone” (2011) as well as the performance series “Wedding Politics” (2013‚Äì16) exploring the theme of same-sex marriage. His latest photo-book, “Family Regained,” will be published this autumn.
