Kenji Hirasawa – Celebrity


Kenji Hirasawa’s “2009-11 series at Madame Tussauds, Kenji contrasts lifeless waxworks with living human beings. Kenji’s way of taking photographies mirrors the question of what it means to be a celebrity. One can only come into being as celebrity if the public constitutes one this way. Without this attention, one is essentially nothing. Celebrities as such are indistinguishable from their environment. They depend on their audience in order to be shaped.” [from kenjihirasawa.com]
