There are creatively innovative people who express themselves freely without being bound by preconceived ideas, yet find it difficult to independently share their gifts. The artists who create work at Yamanami Kobo, a welfare facility in Shiga prefecture, are diagnosed with severe learning disabilities and mental disorders. With the involvement and cooperation of creative professionals of various genres, more possibilites can open up to the artists’ activities, with the potential to create more value to their work. This exhibition showcases collaborations between the Yamanami Kobo artists and pr-y, including photobooks and fashion items (sold in 13 countries around the world).

“My first photo shoot with a large pinhole camera that I got hold of in 1988 happened to be in one of most important sacred sites of Japan.” It has been told since ancient times that 8 million deities dwell in the sacred areas of Japan; in Shinto it is believed that the spirits of the gods reside in the mountains, rivers, trees, in every aspect of nature. Japan is surrounded by the sea, so the sun rises from the sea and sets into the sea. For agriculture, the fishing industry and every aspect of people’s lives, the sun has been revered as the most important deity. This exhibition presents work capturing the sun, which is part of the scenery of Japan.

Shitsurai takes place in a machiya (traditional Kyoto townhouse), a dwelling place as well as a space in which the Japanese spirit and philosophical ideals come to life. There, merged together, are essences of culture of different times and origins. Photographs and craftworks are arranged in a way that resonates with the entire space, creating mutual ideas and becoming one with the viewer.

Satoshi Fujiwara happened to be in Paris when the Paris terrorist attacks took place on November 13, 2015. He felt a great gap between what he experienced personally and the media coverage of the attacks, as well as the solidarity shown on social media, and attempted to grasp this gap through photography. This exhibition presents photographs taken the day after, on the site of the attacks, focussing on the media behind-the-scenes; they not only document but also picture the relationships between information, communication technology, and national security.
