poster for 22nd “1_WALL” Photography Exhibition

Ends in 3 days

*By appointment only.

Starting July 7 (Tue) Guardian Garden will host the 22nd “1_WALL” Photography Exhibition, part of an open competition for the right to mount a solo show at the gallery. The exhibition will feature work by six finalists after two rounds of judging: the first round focusing on all entrants’ portfolios, and the second round consisting of one-on-one discussions between the photographers selected in the initial round and the judges. In this group exhibition, each finalist is allocated one wall on which to show their work.

The final round of judging will take place on July 30 (Thu), i.e. while the exhibition is in progress. During this round, which is open to the public, the six finalists will give presentations about their work, and the judges will then discuss the relative merits of the six contenders’ work and select the Grand Prize winner. The winner’s prize is the privilege of holding a solo show at the gallery one year later, plus 300,000 yen to prepare for the show.

The twenty-second exhibition in this series brings together an eclectic array of young photographers. Akane Ito took self-portraits during weekend travels. Momoko Komatsu thematically addressed the contradictions and madness in our daily lives. Chihiro Gompei visually expressed human behavior and relationships pivoted around the theme of sharing, or not sharing, a cultural background. Sachiko Saito shot photos of the community of Kurds living in Japan. Kyosuke Sasaki photographed an underground bunker left by the Japanese Army. Hsueh Da-Yung focused his work on Taiwan’s compulsory military training.
