Kikuji Kawada – Coca-Cola, 1965

Kikuji Kawada. Coca-Cola, 1965.  Silver gelatin print 40 x 50 cm.


Born in the Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan in 1933.

“Images of advertising, scrap iron, the trampled national flag and emblems of the American Forces such as Lucky Strike and Coca-Cola, all twisted together, their order shuffled again and again. Some appeared as a montage to be presented as a metaphor. I dare not say the meaning of it.”
