Contemplation: Emerging Female Photographers from Japan features work by Tomoe Murakami, Yuki Tawada, Yuhki Toyama and Ai Takahashi. The exhibition has generously been loaned to TWU by Pictura Gallery in Bloomington, Indiana.
Photographs depict no more than what is visible. Yet at the same time they possess the uncanny ability to reveal the invisible. Just as the hands of the clock mark the linear passing of time, photography can mark our memory, consciousness, desires, and emotions. Beyond merely documenting the visible world, one of the photographers’ roles is to create a space for reflecting and gazing upon such invisibilities. This exhibition introduces the work of four emerging Japanese female photographers who engage these invisibilities from various angles.
