The exhibition “Innocent Water” by up-and-coming Japanese artist and photographer Keiko Kurita opened at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography on Thursday, featuring scenes from an Icelandic winter.
Kurita describes her photo series as follows: “The surreal quiet of the landscape, the fragments of winter life such as swimming in pools of warm water sourced from natural hot springs, and strolling on frozen lakes, portray warmth and beauty in an extremely cold world.”
Between 2004 and 2008, Kurita visited Iceland seven times in both summer and winter. The exhibition consists of ten prints and a book, which is a photo narrative of 43 images that are also projected on a wall of the exhibition.
On April 4, another exhibition of her work opens in Reykjavík, in the ASÍ Art Museum.
The “Innocent Water” exhibition runs through May 5. It is supported by the Nomura Cultural Foundation.
