Overview participating exhibitions
Post-industrial urban society demands an efficient use of space. For decades the solution lay in skyscrapers, which fundamentally altered social space and the structure of communities. The lift, a form of transportation that makes vertical living possible, has played a key role in this. Xavier Comas recorded the lifts of Tokyo in black and white, revealing the essential paradox of estrangement in the metropolis: emotional distance cheek by jowl with unavoidable physical proximity.
Xavier Comas (Spain, 1970) studied Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona, but presently has his home base in Bangkok, Thailand. After a background in design and illustration, since 2004 he has been a full-time photographer.
