Over the BORDER


THE KYOTO Salon Room, 7th Floor Kyoto Shimbun

Through his KYOTOGRAPHIE exhibition Heartstrings, a project about dementia, Kazuhiko Matsumura contributes to the conversation for those affected by the condition and those foreign to it, helping to overcome a BORDER by creating an educational opportunity that fosters compassion.

Matsumura will present the making of Heartstrings, sharing the symptoms and intimacy of those with dementia, the required care, and an ideal model of a supportive society through the mixed media presentation of photographs, texts, and videos.

In addition, participants will gain insight into his personal life, juggling his professional life as a Kyoto Newspaper photographer and personal projects, exploring various platforms as outlets for his works, including magazines (online and print), photo books, and photography festivals.
Participants will share their works in return, then discuss them in a group setting to find attainable goals for individual objectives.

    認知症について長期にわたり取材し、写真と記事が京都新聞に連載され、雑誌にも寄稿する。4組の認知症の本人・家族・周囲の人々に取材を重ね、それぞれの日々や移ろいをとらえた作品を「心の糸」としてKG+SELECT 2022にて発表し、グランプリを受賞。松村の写真と言葉は、認知症への理解を深めるきっかけを真摯に提示し、超高齢社会に一筋のやわらかな光を照らしている。
