I was born at the beginning of the Showa era. During my childhood there was a great war, then I lived the period of reconstruction and growth and now I am slowly approaching the twilight of life. Through these images, cosmology is an illusion of the firmament while including the reality of an epoch and the cosmology of a changing heart. Kikuji Kawada Astrology, formerly an academic tradition, relates astronomical phenomena to events in the human world. The Last Cosmology reveals Kikuji Kawada's preoccupation with the cosmos and his fleeting empathy for the diminishing habit of divination. Inspired by the apocalyptic skies of the painter Emil Nolde, Kawada photographed abnormal and dire weather conditions: gales that set swirling cloud patterns, thunderstorms, or rain pouring down on windows. Taken between 1980 and 2000, the photographs are part of the Catastrophe Trilogy, a chronicle that establishes a link between the dramas of the heavens and the end of two historical eras on earth: the Showa era in Japan, ending with the death of the emperor in 1989, and the end of the 20th century. According to Kawada, I think of the era and myself as two tacitly intermingled catastrophes I want to peek into the depths of a multi-hued heart that is like a Karman vortex.
