The exhibition at Argos overviews ten years of Kawauchi's activity, and presents a selection of the photographic series Utatane (2001), Aila (2004), The Eyes (2005), and 3 Years after Cui Cui (2008).
The new video work Utatane 2 (2009) and the slideshow Cui Cui (2005) complement the exhibition. On one hand her work is a reflective movement towards the outside world while on the other a look on her private life. This results in groups of images that respectively focus on the smallest and most transitory moments of the ordinary day and give an intimate glimpse into Kawauchi's family life.
Perhaps the best summary of Kawauchi's moving work is to be found in this verse by William Blake:
"To see the world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."
