Yuki Onodera

About Artist: Yuki Onodera (Onodera Yuki?, born 1962) is a Japanese photographer. She graduated from the Kuwazawa Design School in Tokyo. Now she lives in France.Twenty years ago, that was 1993, the year of tori (“Rooster” in the Japanese Juni Shi Calendar), Yuki Onodera left Tokyo for Paris to seek her creative inspiration. Between 1993 and 1997 she created her first trilogy, starting with “Liquid”, with water as the origin of creation, then she experimented with “Clothes” suspended in the air, and ended with “Birds” flying into nothingness. As she was living in Montmartre she had a window with an unhindered view. Always innovative in photographic technique Yuki invents a modus operandi using fixed camera and flash with cloudy sky as backdrop to portray “Second-hand Clothes” and to capture “Birds” in flight. By coincidence an installation at the Pompidou center by French artist Christian Boltanski, using a pile of used clothes to symbolize death, provided Yuki with the material to achieve her project. These “Portraits” of disincarnated clothes, or clothes without a body, floating against a cloudy sky, each with a distinct personality, although that of an invisible being, came to form a haunting reinterpretation of Lazarus raising from the dead. In April 2006 Onodera inaugurated the cycle of photography exhibition at the Shanghai Art Museum, her “Second-hand Clothes” mesmerized the audience.
