Art wa shinsai wo fuka sasenai [Art does not let the disaster be forgotten]. Photo Exhibition by Magdalena Sole – Since That Day
An exhibition entitled “Art wa shinsai wo fuka sasenai [Art does not let the disaster be forgotten]. Photo Exhibition by Magdalena Sole – Since That Day” will be held at ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE.
Magdalene Sole is a photographer living in New York and a joint recipient of an Academy Award. In the immediate aftermath of the earthquake disaster she began visiting the stricken area, since which time she has been engaged in ongoing activities to comfort people living in the affected areas through photography, such as providing guidance in photography techniques. The collection of photographs taken at the sites was shown in New York, continuing to convey to the rest of the world the situation in the area struck by the disaster. This latest exhibition will display photographs taken by Magdalena Sole in Iwate, Fukushima, and Miyagi, in an effort to support the rapid recovery of the disaster-affected region. Though almost five years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake, the disaster area still faces many challenges, which will continue to need support in the long term. We hope that the artist’s works will provide a fresh perspective on the memories of Tohoku that should never be forgotten.
