G/P gallery is pleased to announce Taisuke Koyama’s solo exhibition “Generated X” from January 6th 2017.
This exhibition will present an updated version of the installation belonging to the photography and video series “PICO” that was shown in Koyama’s well received exhibition “Generated Images”, held at the Daiwa Foundation Japan House Gallery on April 2016 in London. In recent years, Koyama’s work has focused on the ‘experience the images’ and it is for this exhibition that an installation exploring the viewer’s physical interaction with images has been developed. This exhibition will also exhibit the work “VESSEL- XYZXY”, which was previously exhibited at the “Aichi Triennial 2016: Trans Dimension” and was created in collaboration with Japanese sculptor Kohei Nawa, as well as the work “Light Field” which explores the possibilities for photography in the post-digital era.
From 2014 to 2016, Koyama lived and worked in London, England via the Japanese Government Overseas Study Program for Artists sponsored by the Agency of Cultural Affairs. Currently he lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Since moving to Europe, Koyama has had solo exhibitions in Zurich and London; and has participated in group exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles and Milan. In 2015, Koyama was invited to participate in “PLAT(T)FORM 2015” organised by Fotomuseum Winterhur, Switzerland. In addition, the photo book “Rainbow Variations” (2015) was
created in collaboration with Swiss designers duo MAXIMAGE, was published by Artbeat Publishers, and the Swiss publishing house Kodoji Press. In 2016, Koyama participated in “Japan Media Arts Festival in Aomori” (Aomori Museum of Art, Aomori, JP, 2016); “Aichi Triennial 2016: Trans Dimension” (Okazaki Cibico, Higashi Okazaki, JP, 2016) and collaborated with CAMPER to create a collection of limited edition products. Koyama is currently working on projects for the near future.
With a background in biology and natural environmental studies, Koyama’s work explores the possibilities of image making in the post digital-era. Please take this opportunity to discover Taisuke Koyama’s work.
As digital technology advances dramatically, photography has entered an era of drastic transformation. As the fundamental question of “What is photography?” intersects with extensions and diversions of the medium that may prompt the response “Is this really photography?”, it has become one of the most dynamic areas of contemporary art. One highly noteworthy development is that with advances in computer technology and the advent of 3D printers, photographers are rapidly redefining “photography” as a 3D medium. With the keyword of “transformation,” this exhibition explores the issue of dimensionality, which is shaping up to be a significant trend in the photography of the future, shining a spotlight on the three-dimensionalization of photography in the post-Internet age.

Taisuke Koyama’s exhibition, Generated Images, thematises the possibilities of photographic expression in the post-digital era. He aims to provide a space for audiences to experience ‘environmentalised’ images in the form of the tangible objects and data created by digital devices.
In the most recent years of the post-Internet era, there has been increasing interconnectivity between the virtual and the real. In photography, this has coincided with the advancement of digital camera and printing technology. As a result, photography is about to enter a radically new transitional period. Digital photography generates images by converting light into data, unlike analogue photography, which fixes the light on a film via physical substances. The concepts of ‘original’ and ‘critical moments’ have been gradually replaced by a sense of replication, synthesis, re-editing and re-composing, sorting and sharing by tags and keywords…. infinite intervention in the images.
When photographs are shared and data edited with unprecedented scale and freedom, how can an image actually be created? How are we experiencing it and feeding it back into the surrounding environment? One of the most important challenges for contemporary photographers is to review the possibilities of the ‘new freedom’ that photography has acquired. In his first solo show in London, Koyama tries to explore the potential of photographic media through ‘indeterminacy’ and the replication of images.
