Questioning anew the act of watching moving images, Japanese artist Aya Momose (b.1988, Tokyo) deals with the fundamental problem of video as a medium that inevitably contains polarities and imbalances. Divergences of voice and body, language and gesture are highlighted and explored by Momose’s poetic and intellectual wit. In so doing, the artist illustrates the precarious and ambiguous nature of subjectivity, ultimately exposing the uncertainty of relations and communication with others. Borrowing the Other Eye is Momose’s first solo exhibition in Europe. It gathers together a selection of recent and past works, including a new photographic work, shown for the first time.
