Ippodo Gallery welcomes you to the book signing for Synthesis II “Adore” Madonna and Fusuma Photography, the second solo exhibition of works by Kenji Wakasugi. ADORE is the complete overview of the session – 200 pages include 324 frames, 10 contact sheets, together with 111 large format black and white portraits. For three and a half decades this collection remained private, near silent. Furthermore, the design of this art-book pays homage to Japanese 80’s minimalism. The aqua cover features only the title ADORE debossed in ebony lettering. Madonna’s name is foiled in Japanese text on the accompanying canary yellow and neon pink bellybands (hand sewn) – the idea being that the book itself becomes an object of beauty.⁠

Please join for a book signing with the artist Kenji Wakasugi (@kenji_wakasigi) and publisher and creative director of NJG Studio Ltd. (@njg_studio), Nick Groarke. The event will take place on Saturday December 4th from 3-5 PM at Ippodo Gallery, 32 E 67th St. RSVP via email to mail@ippodogallery.com.
