Synopsis: This lusciously produced volume examines the multiple meanings deriving from a single word, also exploring how seemingly similar images can be perceived so differently as a result of our personal associations. ‘Sei’ is a Japanese word which, although always pronounced the same, can be represented by no less than 28 kanji characters with a diverse host of meanings: star, voice, blue, sex, energy, death, betrayal, peace of mind, purity. Here, the photographer Yuriko Takagi opens up this semantic cacophony, in depictions of 28 flower buds, each of which is associated with a separate kanji character. Streaked, folded petals, downy pistils, silken stamens, woolly aigrettes: are these flowers, sexual organs, bits of creased taffeta, or puffed-up tissue paper? Takagi’s images are as polymorphic as the kanji that inspired them.

About the Author: Yuriko TakagiNée à Tokyo en 1951, Yuriko Takagi a étudié le graphisme à l’université de Musashito, au Japon, et le stylisme à Trent Polytechnic, en Grande-Bretagne. Elle commence par travailler comme designer free-lance en Europe avant de réaliser ses premiers portraits photographiques lors de voyages en Asie, en Afrique, en Amérique latine et au Moyen Orient. Son approche très humaniste et son intérêt pour le corps en mouvement dans l’espace révèlent un regard intimiste, fasciné par l’immersion du corps dans la nature. Ses photographies sont régulièrement exposées au Japon et en Europe et figurent dans les collections des grands musées d’art à Tokyo, Kobe et Shanghai. Alberto ManguelNé à Buenos Aires en 1948, Alberto Manguel passe son enfance en Israël, élevé par une nourrice tchèque qui lui enseigne l’anglais et l’allemand. De retour en Argentine à sept ans, il apprend l’espagnol, sa langue « maternelle ». À seize ans, il rencontre Jorge Luis Borges qui, devenu aveugle, l’engage comme lecteur. En 1968, il quitte l’Argentine, peu avant les répressions de la dictature militaire, pour parcourir le monde. Il vit en France, en Grande-Bretagne, en Italie, à Tahiti et au Canada, dont il prend la nationalité. Il a publié de nombreuses anthologies, des essais, dont le best-seller Une histoire de la lecture (prix Médicis 1996), ainsi que des romans, parmi lesquels Dernières nouvelles d’une terre abandonnée (prix McKitterick du premier roman, Grande-Bretagne, 1992), Un retour (2005) et Tous les hommes sont menteurs (2008).
