About

Join us and tokyo based photographer, Photographer Haal to discover his remarkable work in which he shows his collection of vaccuum packed couples and now entire families(!). 

Haal will be in the studio on the 18th of september from 7pm talking about his work

Our current exhibition Photographer Haal draws together Haal's series'  flesh love, flesh love returns and flesh love all in studio bizio from 3rd september until 16th october.

 Photographer Haal (Haruhiko Kawaguchi) invites couples to wrap themselves in plastic and then be deprived of air for up to ten seconds. "Inside this transparent prison, time stretches, bodies transform and lovers merge".

"I make them choose a place for shooting,’ the artist says. ‘men and women are attracted to each other, and try to become one. This fundamental desire carries an energy that affects all matter in the world. I wonder: what is the reason we have to make such an effort to become one — possibly we were originally one? I intend to visualize this power of love by adhering and unifying couples."  Haal


"Couples are married, cohabiting, divorced, and sometimes even hating each other." Haal


"I felt it was the most private place for a couple. Here, love could reach its peak" Haal
