Go Watanabe - Transplant

poster for Go Watanabe - Transplant

This event has ended.

As the title suggests, Watanabe's photographic series focus on things that have been "transplanted" from one environment to another. Although a foreigner arriving in a new place may at first be rejected, such tension inevitably begins to thaw, gradually, until finally the newcomer comes to be accepted as if it had always been part of local landscape. Watanabe's depictions of plantation farms and the towns around them are a condensed embodiment of this fundamental human attitude. In this sense, they provide viewers with opportunities to reconsider and rediscover their own environments and surroundings; to reevaluate their own ideas of nations and ethnicity; and by extension to reconsider how such forces might likely play out in our future.
