*The details below

“corpus” is the second solo exhibition of Antoine d’Agata organized by MEM, Tokyo. The central work at the show is the videogram including many still images from d’Agata’s third film “ATLAS” in addition to a separate photo installation consisting of a hundred prints of self-portrait by the artist in the past couple decades. “ATLAS” will be also screened on every weekend for the first time in Japan with Japanese subtitles.
“ATLAS” was completed in 2013 and screened in Edinburgh International Film Festival as the world premier in 2014. “ATLAS” is d’Agata’s third film that centered around ladies working in prostitution and trading drugs. The film consists of monologues in different languages by these ladies who confesses their inner world describing violence, agony, pleasure and pain in their personal daily lives. d’Agata says “the essence of my job lies in the attitude of the photographer to what he photographs. I never wanted to accept the position of the observer who is not involved in the situation. The technique and aesthetics do not matter to me. Only the essence of what is happening is important to me…”
