The Japan Art Inheritance Association presents Tomohiro Muda, Icons of Time 2021, the 2nd & last installment of exhibitions in support of the East Japan Earthquake Reconstruction.
Opening exactly 10 years after the Great East Japan Earthquake, the exhibition presents a selection of photographs from the critically acclaimed photobook, Icons of Time: Memories of the Tsunami that Struck Japan (Heibonsha, 2013). These post-disaster images of found objects lost by the tsunami and disaster sites presents a narrative of objects through the effects of time. Calling attention to nature's overarching magnitude, these works pose a dichotomy that signifies, both, nature's underlying threat to man and its capacity for infinite regeneration.
The venue will be set with stones and water to remind visitors of the time and place these objects represent.
Marking the first decade since the disaster, part of the proceeds will go towards supporting the Great East Japan Earthquake Reconstruction. Kosai Hori ＋Erize Hori, To Remember- Who am I?, the 1st installment of exhibitions in support of post-disaster aid, is also on view at B1F of the venue.
