Tomohiro Muda, Icons of Time 2021, An Exhibition in Support of Post-Disaster Aid

By: The Japan Art Inheritance Association
TOKYO, Japan - Feb. 25, 2021 - PRLog -- The Japan Art Inheritance Association (Tokyo, Shinjuku) proudly presents Icons of Time 2021, the 2nd & last installment of exhibitions in support of the East Japan Earthquake Reconstruction. The exhibition commences exactly 10 years after the Great East Japan Earthquake, from March 11 to March 26, 2021.

Tomohiro Muda's photographs record the aftermath of the disaster through the various objects lost by the tsunami or scenes of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. In addition to being exhibited worldwide, these works are published in the critically acclaimed photobook, Icons of Time: Memories of the Tsunami that Struck Japan (Heibonsha, 2013), which will be available for purchase at the venue.

For this exhibition, the venue will be set with stones and water to remind visitors of the time and place these objects represent. 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.

Marking the first decade since the disaster, a part of the exhibition proceeds will go towards supporting the Great East Japan Earthquake Reconstruction.
