This event has ended.

Similar to his past works, Masaharu Hatta's new works, which were created under the same title as Louis F. Celine's debut novel "Voyage au bout la nuit," are enveloped within stories that possess a sense of oddity. His works are imaginary stories that are manifested via a sequence of images: portraits, landscapes and snapshots. But while his past works were disclosed through indications of stories via this entire sequence, his new works somehow leave a different impression on viewers. That is to say, the characters and scenes that appear in the individual images of his new works seem to diffuse their own respective stories. "What are these stories alluding to?" "Whose stories are they?" "Where are they heading toward?"—such questions might occur in one's mind. Thus, an odd sense of magnetism that is conveyed from his stories captivates the viewers.
