This event has ended.
Terada’s photographs are created by photographing miniature model rooms and their windowsills with natural light, which the artist creates herself. She says, “I work with the intention of sculpting light like a sculptor carves marble.” As she says, natural light shines into these miniature spaces cut out of memory, just as it does in real life, and together with their shadows and shadows, there exists a mysterious and soft space in which reality and fiction are interwoven with each other. The artist calls this “presence of absence” and it has become the axis of his continuous pursuit of creation.
There are currently five sub-titled series in this existence of absence. Doll House 2001–2004, Choosing Scenery 2004–2008, The Invisible Boundary 2008–2011, Green House 2012–2015, Another Angle 2016–2020. This exhibiton features about 30 works from each series, including miniature sculptures. Terada says, “I think time is also something that matures memories”, and each series is organized along a time axis.
