Internationally renowned contemporary artist Noritoshi Hirakawa was born Japan in the 60s, but has been living and working in New York City since 1993. Working in a variety of media, from photography, film, performance and installation, Hirakawa produces intimate artworks which confront the assumption that heterosexual desires are in some way oppressive and objectifying, and challenge the mainstream ideas of sexuality. By pushing the boundaries of our perception, Hirakawa hopes to further our culture and alter our aesthetic views for the future.
When speaking about his photographic series "The Reason Of Life", which was exhibited at Deitch Projects in 1998, Hirakawa said - "This is the view of what men dream of but can never be at the point to see. Many men have a lot of desire to see the underwear beneath a woman's skirt. At the same time, many women think about having their underwear looked at by men. This desire is never spoke of in public. The woman is photographed by the artist at the same moment as the woman photographs herself. The camera can be a very good excuse to connect men's and women's desires."
