“In Japanese, the word sei means at least 28 different things, each distinct and definable. In fact, every word, in any language, translates, not as one, but as a whole anthology of meanings.” Alberto Manguel excperted from Yuriko Takagi: Sei

Yuriko Takagi: Sei


Featured image is reproduced from <I>Yuriko Takagi: Sei</I>.This lusciously produced volume examines the multiple meanings deriving from a single word, also exploring how seemingly similar images can be perceived so differently as a result of our personal associations. ‘Sei’ is a Japanese word which, although always pronounced the same, can be represented by no less than 28 kanji characters with a diverse host of meanings: star, voice, blue, sex, energy, death, betrayal, peace of mind, purity. Here, the photographer Yuriko Takagi opens up this semantic cacophony, in depictions of 28 flower buds, each of which is associated with a separate kanji character. Streaked, folded petals, downy pistils, silken stamens, woolly aigrettes: are these flowers, sexual organs, bits of creased taffeta, or puffed-up tissue paper? Takagi’s images are as polymorphic as the kanji that inspired them.
