HAJIME SAWATARI TENKO Published by Case Publishing, 2016 Book Size 150 x 210 mm Pages 368 pages, 308 images Hardcover Language English, Japanese Edition 1500 Hanayo found the Alice book on her way home from school. She was 15. Tenko moved to Tokyo and met Hajime Sawatari. She was 15. In London, when Alice was photographed, Hanayo was 3. Alice was Tenko’s favourite book when she was 3. When Hanayo moved to London, she was 19. Tenko left Tokyo and Hanayo. She was 19. The universe cycles. The wonders of life. -From the artist's statement Tenko, her beloved daughter, has always been an important subject for Japanese artist Hanayo. After the birth of Tenko, Hanayo has documented her daughter’s growing up between Tokyo and Berlin, in her double capacity as mother and artist. One of the first and second books Tenko came into contact with during her childhood was “Shojo Arisu (Alice)” (1973) by Hajime Sawatari, In Hanayo’s photos, Tenko can be seen squatting over the photo book, reading in it as if it were a picture book. At 15, Tenko met the creator of this favourite book of hers, photographer Hajime Sawatari. After their initial encounter, Tenko went on to become one of Sawatari’s most important photographic subjects. Five years later, the two have collaborated on photographic works that carry the mystical, distant sensuality of the original “Alice” photobook. The photo book “Tenko” is an intersection between Hanayo’s photos, taken in her role as Tenko’s mother, and Hajime Sawatari’s mystical, sensual photos inspired by Tenko’s favourite childhood book, Sawatari’s “Alice”. -Statement from the distributor ----- Tenko, sa fille bien-aimée, a toujours été un sujet important pour l'artiste japonaise Hanayo. Après la naissance de Tenko, Hanayo a documenté la croissance de sa fille entre Tokyo et Berlin, en sa double qualité de mère et d’artiste. À 15 ans, Tenko a rencontré le créateur de son livre préféré, le photographe Hajime Sawatari. Après leur première rencontre, Tenko est devenu l’un des sujets photographiques les plus importants de Sawatari. Cinq ans plus tard, les deux ont collaboré sur des œuvres photographiques qui portent la sensualité mystique et lointaine du livre photo original «Alice». Le livre photo «Tenko» est une intersection entre les photos de Hanayo, prises dans son rôle de mère de Tenko, et les photos mystiques et sensuelles de Hajime Sawatari inspirées du livre d’enfance préféré de Tenko, «Alice» de Sawatari.
