Hisaji Hara: a photographic portrayal on the paintings of Balthus II
6 April – 22 May 2010
gallery bauhaus
This is the second show of Hara’s Balthus-themed photographic compositions.
Reinventing the artist’s legendary portraits of young girls and boys in a distinctly Japanese setting,
Hara has made the intriguing choice of clothing his models in school uniforms, notably the girls’
middy-blouse-and-skirt ensemble that is the infamous object of Lolitesque obsession in Japan.
Even as they cleverly mix and match elements of eastern and western dress culture, Hara’s tableaux
exude the same poignant longing for youthful innocence so palpable in Balthus’s images.

Hisaji Hara: A photographic portrayal on the paintings of Balthus
27 October – 1 November 2009
Totem Pole Photo Gallery
Hara’s tranquil monochrome portraits look strangely familiar – and indeed, all are modeled after
paintings by Balthus (1908-2001), one of the most revered artists of the 20th century. Although
the figures and background furnishings are not identical to the originals, the compositions are.
Through this tableau-vivant-like approach, Hara somehow manages to capture the essence of
Balthus’s works.
