Fingerprinted Objects, 2021


45cm x 30cm



There is a word called shokuchi (palpating).
It means to sence the presence of an object through tactile perception.

Can a photograph be an object?
Fingerprints are made with a hand trying to grasp an image that can never be touched.
Approach to touch it and leave to see it—I wander about while creating works, taking the distance with the object and the surroundings. I wait for the moment when the image emerges to surface.

Hiroshi Takizawa, born 1983 in Saitama, Japan, works/lives in Vienna. He graduated in Counseling Psychology from theFaculty of Human Sciences, Mejiro University. Since graduating from university with a degree in psychology, Hiroshi Takizawa has continued to produce works in various forms of photographic expression. By capturing "material" in his photographs (and videos) he reconstructs the realized image and fixes it on another base to invite the viewer to a world that shifts between the boundary of image and material. Takizawa reexamines the boundaries between two-dimensional images and three-dimensional materials. Using photography—a device that dissects a space-time into a slice of two-dimensional image, Takizawa makes irreversible transferals possible between dimensions through various media, and continues to extend his unique field of expression. Since his exhibition "Dis-placement" at the Ve.Sch, Vienna (2023), "New Photographic Objects: The Materiality of Photography and Imaging" at the Museum of Modern Art, Saitama (2020), his work has received increasing attention in recent years. In September of 2021 Takizawa was bestowed with the Overseas Trainee Grant by the Japanese Agency of Cultural Affairs, with which he has been conducting research at the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna.
