In the exhibition Matter, Foam presents new three-dimensional work by Daisuke Yokota (Saitama, b. 1983). Three installations revolve around the tactile aspects of photography, in which the outcome of the artwork is not determined by the camera, but by experiments with the material forms of the medium. Previously in his artistic practice Yokota would re-use images that he took years ago, but that keep re-appearing in different ways through various analogue and digital processes. In these new works it's not the image that keeps being reinvented, but the physical photo print and film.

The artist is at the frontline of a new movement of Japanese experimental photographers. Yokota is working out of, and pushing forward, a Japanese photography tradition that harks back to the intuitive experimentation of the Provoke generation. In this exhibition, Yokota focuses on the aspect of volume and material of photography, pushing the medium and its perception forward into ever more original directions.

FOAM PAUL HUF AWARD 
Daisuke Yokota was chosen as the winner of the tenth Foam Paul Huf Award in 2016. He was first featured in the Talent Issue of Foam Magazine in 2013 and works from his Site/Cloud series were the subject of a 2014 solo exhibition at Foam. Yokota lives and works in Japan, where he graduated from the Nippon Photography Institute in 2003. in 2015, Yokota won the Photo London John Kobal Residency Award. He is represented by G/P Gallery, Japan.
