Over the past two decades. Naotaka Hiro has grappled with the question of whether. We can ever know the parts. Of our bodies that we are unable to see without the aid of a mirror or camera. Much of his work. Which encompasses a range of media. Including also, drawing, painting, sculpture, and video. His body’s capabilities to their very limits in order to document. Hiro’s sculptures map particular segments of his anatomy. His drawings, which he sees as the crux of his practice, also engage in a kind of mapping. To make them. Finally, he leans or lies directly onto the paper. Thus a portion of his body becomes a remnant of the process.
