Highlights of Tokyo Dialogue 2022
“Tokyo Dialogue 2022” exhibition
In this exhibition, works were created through a “dialogue” in which the writer responds verbally to the photographs taken by the photographer, set in Kyobashi, Tokyo.
These works, while resonating and complementing each other, express the visible and invisible things, such as the (provisional name) TODA BUILDING construction site, the scenery of the city that changes daily, and the memories engraved in this place. I draw organically beyond time and space. This series of works is a living record of the city, and at the same time presents a way of asking the question, “What is dialogue?” It overlaps with the appearance of the city itself. The artist’s diverse expressions and collaboration, such as the interesting details of each work and the expansion of
interpretation by combining photographs and words, will be connected to each viewer’s experience of the city, and the work will be presented. Please enjoy the “dialogue”.
