Chie Yasuda

Chie Yasuda’s photos taken in old gardens and museums are ‘pervaded with a unique sense of aura that has accumulated densely just in that particular space’.

Curator Mitsuda Yuri on her works:

When Chie Yasuda travels, she stops to look at the obscure, abandoned corners of old botanical gardens and museums. She often notices things deteriorating within the enclosure of spaces, and plants expiring in the stagnant air between the overlapping leaves.

Chie Yasuda was born in 1962. She lives and works in Saitama, Japan. Her works are ethereal, reminding me of dreams and nightmares.

She is represented by Taro Nasu Gallery, Tokyo. See more works from her.
