I first experienced Michiko Kon's black and white photographs at an exhibition, "Mirror Images: Women, Surrealism, and Self-Representation", at the MIT List Gallery. This book reproduces the photographs wonderfully.
At a glance, the images are merely photographs of objects which emerge from a rich black background-- a dress, two legs, a chain-mail mask, a group of ducks. A second later, the details trap the viewer. The lace dress is covered with pea pods and peas. The legs are covered in a variety of materials inlcuding dozens of thumbtacks, disembodied fish, cuttlefish, strawberries, wire metal strainers from kitchen sinks, a small clock, and photographs cut into circular shapes. The links of the chain mail become small crabs. Instantly recognizable, each part and fragment of these objects are familar because they are objects easily found in our daily lives.
Kon, however, has transformed these everyday objects to creations that peer out from her inner vision and forces the viewer to question the ordinary. Why do these cold slippery fish cover the legs? Are those really cuttlefish arms? As we piece together the evidence we look for tell-tale signs of manipulation and creation. We know that ducks do not have fish heads as feathers; we are sure that legs do not tend to be covered in tacks. And yet, there are no obious signs of the artist's hands. Instead, the black and white images and the documentary nature of photography question our sense of what is familar or real.
One striking characteristic of Kon's creations is the obsessive skill with which they are made. The materials which she chooses to use are mostly dead, fragile, and decomposing. Despite the difficulty of working with such objects, each part of a piece is perfectly sliced, cut, and attached. The contrasting materials are so skillfully attached that they defy the idea that they do not naturally belong together or that the sculptures are hand-made. Fragile pea pods, each carefully split open so that the peas remain attached, become a pattern upon the lace dress, uniformly covering the garment in Pea and Dress. There are no signs of small imperfections. Small details, such as a string of peas around the collar, again point to the attention with which these imaginary visions are given life. Though the ideas may surface suddenly in a brillant flash into consciousness, the way in which they come to exist is through a methodical process which borders on obsession.
I enjoyed this book and Kon's photographs due to Kon's great skill in creating and photographing portraits of these ephemeral creations, and for Kon's unique vision.

I'm fascinated by Michiko Kon's work. At first glance her work seems reminiscent of Meret Oppenheim constructions, subverting the traditional perception of objects and adding a touch of the absurd. But Kon's work speaks of a uncomfortable vulnerably, the soft transient flesh of the animals she uses to create her still life objects add a sense of violence to otherwise unremarkable objects. It's surreal work in the fact that the photos are dreamlike and out of the usual frame of reference but for me it's hard to avoid the emotional and sexual undercurrent present in her work that I find lacking in the fur tea cups and other permanent objects which seem political. In Horse Mackerel, Pond, and Boy, 1998 it seems that her materials seek retribution upon the human race and in others like Frog and Cuttlefish, 1994 the wrath is visited up on the smaller creatures. Kon's photographs freeze a single moment when these scenes existed and can now be examine by us at our leisure. Describing in words the photographs to me is useless, each individual has their own reaction the the images, the only way to know is to see for yourself.

Very good!

Michiko Kon is a genius, a great, fanatical, uncanny surrealist and a consummate craftsman. I cannot muster the appropriate art-critical verbiage to describe her work. The work must be seen to be appreciated. It really belongs in no genre, it stands on its own.

I bought a job-lot of these volumes remaindered. I gave away most as gifts, the recipients being the source of much feedback. I would recommend this volume to marine biologists and sushi chefs, but the reception from most folks is mixed, to say the least.

Buy this book while it's cheap.

I don't even remember how I found this book, but I am glad I did.
It's crazy, strange, haunting, dirty, beautiful, and dark.
Michiko Kon is a great original artist.
