They’re squid heads and we like them – a new show in Paris for Yumiko Utsu

With her starting blocks firmly placed in surreality, Japanese photographer Yumiko Utsu presents vaguely repulsive but highly astute visual dichotomies that look a bit kitsch and smell like the sea. Food is a highly metaphorical thing, and by using it so gratuitously and in such an aesthetic way, Yumiko creates mini fantasies about how we interact with it that just seems to work. Squid heads? Why not. Now you can see them exhibited at Paris’ Galerie LWS with Mayumi Hosokura in Natures until May 19
