Fragment of Long-Term Memory: a surreal and realistic photo manipulation series by Yuichi Ikehata

Combining his handmade sculptures composed of wire, clay, and paper with digital photo manipulations, Japanese artist Yuichi Ikehata, aka Kakuunohito, creates disturbing and intriguing figures of fragmented human body parts that symbolize the fragile boundaries in a world of reality and fiction.

The ‘real’ world of Yuichi Ikehata is not just a ‘pure myth’, but rather a powerful reflection of the inner universe, a variety of human thoughts, emotions and memories. His works are a fascinating exploration of the fragile boundaries that exist in a world of reality and non-reality, which are “very intimate, so it is not too much to say that they are almost one.” Happiness and sadness, contrasting emotions or feelings that complete each other, all are fragments of a reality we share, which sometimes tends to become fictitious: “I collect the fragments, edit, arrange and capture them”.
