Nudes Like You’ve Never Seen Before | Shinichi Maruyama at Bruce Silverstein


Continuing on with picks for this season’s NY gallery openings is Shinichi Maruyama(previously), who photographs nudes like you’ve never seen them before. The Japanese artist, who is showing at Bruce Silverstein, points his camera at nude dancers, capturing thousands of individual frames. Each frame is then layered on top of one another, creating a sculptural composite image “that contradict the notion of a photograph as a single moment of stopped time.”


The inspiration comes from Marcel Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase (1912). “I tried to capture the beauty of both the human body’s figure and its motion,” says Maruyama. “By putting together uninterrupted individual moments, the resulting image as a whole will appear to be something different from what actually exists.”
