Charles Freger – Yokainoshima

2013-2015 Charles Freger – YOKAINOSHIMA

“That is the topic of Yokainoshima: through an inventory of masked figures, he paints the face of Japan’s countryside, the traditions that set the pace of its inhabitants’ lives and the earth upon which they tread and work.”

“With his work, he takes care to present his subject in harmony with a place, a time and a community as if to better convince us of our implacable ties to the excesses of appearance and the social aspect of position or status.”
