Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery presents Bricolage, its first exhibition with Sohei Nishino, which runs concurrent to the artist’s solo show, “New Work”, at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Nishino creates large-scale, diagrammatic photomontages of cities called Diorama Maps. Inspired by the 18th century Japanese mapmaker Ino Tadataka, Nishino spends up to three months walking and photographing a specific city, exploring different vantage points while taking hundreds of rolls of film. He then prints the contact sheets, cuts out the individual frames and affixes them by hand onto a panel, thereby creating a collaged map that expresses a truly personal interpretation of each city.

“I portray the geographical representations by using the photographs that have captured the specific things and events that are completely different from the symbolic representations on maps. This is my attempt to express the appearance of the cities by integrating my personal experiences and memories. What results is not at all a map to convey precise information, but the record of how I, as a human being, have walked through their streets and how I looked at those streets. Along with being the representation of my awareness, it is that of the appearance of the respective cities as the epitome of their vitality.”

Sohei Nishino (b. 1982) lives and works in Kanazawa and Shizouka Japan. His solo exhibition, “New Work”, is currently on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art through February 26, 2017. Recent solo exhibitions have been held at Michael Hoppen Gallery, London, 2015 and group exhibitions at Saatchi Gallery, London, 2013 and the International Center of Photography Triennial, New York, 2013.
