The National Museum of Art, Osaka, hosts a large-scale solo exhibition by the German-born and internationally active photographer Wolfgang Tillmans (b. 1968). The artist’s works, which capture everyday scenes from Tillman’s own surroundings, first began to attract attention in the early 1990s. Your Body is Yours is the artist’s first at a Japanese museum in 11 years. Housed in a display space designed by the artist himself, the exhibition includes a series of new works, numerous photographic works from recent years, and a video installation titled Books for Architects. While striving to remain contemporary, Tillmans’ work presents us with the reality of the society we live in.
