This event has ended.

In the early 19th century prior to the invention of photography, panoramic paintings emerged as a popular form of entertainment in Europe. Splendid seaside and mountain motifs were precisely depicted in these landscape paintings, inviting people into other realms for a fleeting moment. Undeveloped areas such as the Alaskan Arctic Circle and huge glacial walls floating in the sea can now be embodied in “fictional” panoramic photographs using minute digital images. Can we lose ourselves in the pure imagination of people who never knew photography in these spaces? This exhibition focuses on unpublished panoramic works by Gentaro Ishizuka such as “Shoup Glacier” and “Surprise Glacier,” shot in Alaska and totaling around six meters in length. In the atrium space a work stretching around fifteen meters will be displayed. Having attracted international attention with projects such as “Pipeline,” some of the works from this series will also be included in the corridor space.
