Miart 2024
About the Booth

Secci is pleased to announce its participation in Miart 2024, taking place from April 11th to April 14th, 2024.

The gallery will present a solo show by Etsu Egami (1994, Tokyo, Japan), the booth will feature a new body of work full of emotional and spiritual connotations. As Julie Champion, the curator at the Centre Pompidou, mentioned, the beauty of her work is that she sees all these specificities as a source of misunderstandings and creation and richness in people’s relationships.

“The human face is not static, it has emotional and spiritual connotations, it is constantly changing, it is the living evidence of energy and information going in and out. In a person’s life, the image of the face can be described as “Yi Chi Go I Chi E,” (a Buddhist expression), fleeting, never normal. I like cherry blossoms that bloom for only a short time. I cherish faces that pass by. Although there are many misunderstandings and dislocations, it is an opportunity and a beginning to understand life and exchange information. We can use a variety of techniques to describe the face, trying to find the truth. But all our efforts are made in dislocation. My portraits are just a moment’s feeling and vague memory, which may be far away from the object described. They are more like cherry blossoms, falling in the spring breeze, silent but fragrant. Each of my portraits may be a misunderstanding. Faces are impermanent. The human face is an endless book, it is eternal, it is the whole of human identity and life.” – Etsu Egami

We look forward to welcoming you at our Booth C27!
