  Miyako Yoshinaga is pleased to present "Latent Heat",  a solo exhibition of photographic works by Mayumi Lake, from October 23 to November 26, 2014.


"Latent Heats," Lake's newest (and most sinister) series reflects upon those difficult years in an attempt to apprehend other people's suffering and accept their ultimate fate. Lake states: "These horrific events, unfolding through the media daily in my birthplace, and the uneasiness and apprehension associated with loss and grieving began to merge together, so synchronize. I was the vortex, the meeting space of several disconnected events that formed a personal sense of tragic ending; a belief akin to the fated sense of despair associated with the end date of the Mayan calendar. I began to think, and even truly believe in a single fated day for the end of all things."
