「Blind Date」是日本藝術家志賀理江子在2017年6月舉行的大規模個展。

志賀理江子生於日本愛知縣,自2008年起居住於宮城縣,透過攝影,她持續以影像作為自身與社會的接點。本展展出志賀2009年在泰國曼谷拍攝的「Blind Date」系列,她拍下騎乘在摩托車上、雙雙對對的戀人騎士,開啟圍繞著悲痛、人性之源、資本主義與死亡的思索與敘事。展覽包括系列照片與一件由20台幻燈機組成的裝置,閃爍著一如生命中光與影的共生與矛盾。我們的眼睛看不到的是什麼呢?志賀嘗試探尋攝影的範圍,認真地觀看世界,創造著接近人類生命樣態的影像。

Through the use of photography, Lieko Shiga has been continuously seeking the images that surface at the point where she intersects with society. Shiga was born in Aichi prefecture in 1980 and is based in Miyagi prefecture since 2008. This exhibition starts with “Blind Date," the series in which she photographed couples in Bangkok and subsequently explored the thoughts and narratives that surround grief, the start of humanity, capitalism and death. The works include photographic prints and an installation comprised of 20 slide projectors. The flickering of the projectors acts as a metaphor of our lives, which coexist and contradict like light and shadow. What are we unable to see with our own eyes? Shiga earnestly attempts to capture this realm with photography. Viewing society with utmost honest, she creates photographs that exist in close proximity to the lives of human beings.
