"Photography Today 3: Resolution/Dissolution" Exhibition
This event has ended.
"Resolution/Dissolution" follows "The Absence of Distance" (1998) and "Site/Sight - Place and Scenes" (2002).
The boundary surface between two different domains has always been an important theme to photography - the boundary surface between public and private spaces, between an urban center and its peripheral borders, and between a photograph as a medium for expression and its actual physical borders. If you try to cross that boundary, a strong power will work to change the essence of the object. However, contact with boundaries is the only way for us to understand how the world is structured.
In this exhibition, six photographers explore boundaries on every level of our daily life to illustrate outlines for new worlds. The present state of photography (hence the title 'Photography Today') can be seen through these works.
