DAIDO MORIYAMA: SPEAKEASY
SEPTEMBER 17 TO OCTOBER 30, 2021
“Eight years after its cycle of exhibitions devoted to the Japanese artist, Polka offers “Speak Easy”, a strange place of worship where men, many women, inanimate beings, objects, bathroom tiles coexist. evoke the fishnet of a tights. A color and black and white trombinoscope in Moriyamapolis.
“Speakeasy” by Daido Moriyama is a hanging that revisits a radical, subtle and more diverse work than it seems. A journey through the streets and back-shops, by day and much by night, in Tokyo or elsewhere. The city according to Daido has no borders. That is why, prison or paradise, it is impossible to leave it. Everything belongs to him. All roads lead to it, highways or sprawling cross roads.”
