Zen Foto Gallery is pleased to present “S”, a solo exhibition of new work by Tokyo Rumando from March 2nd to 31st, 2018. This is Tokyo Rumando’s third solo exhibition with Zen Foto Gallery and her previous solo exhibition at the gallery was presented almost 4 years ago. Tokyo Rumando’s body of new work “S” incorporates theatrical elements, which transforms her self-portraits from a story into a play, performed at her own stage theatre, leading the viewer into another time and space. A photobook, under the same title, will be published in conjunction with the exhibition.
