Deep inside split minerals are beautiful microcosms that are unimaginable from the exterior. On the other hand, the world that we usually see is a mere modicum of a surface layer. Beneath the dwellings where we live and the surfaces on which we walk, billions of years of history surely exist as strata. From those strata, fossils and earthenware are often discovered, and we who live on the surface layer can listen carefully to the breath of life that surely lived in the period of the relics that are unearthed. On the theme of "Invisible Stratum," T3 PHOTO FESTIVAL TOKYO introduces works by artists who have attempted to visualize, by means of photographs, the various invisible layers that exist in our world. Just like the history and time axes possessed by the subjects in the photos, the various emotions and memories of the viewers of the photos are also superimposed. With the metaphor of a stratum as the hint, we hope that the photographs that help establish visible things, invisible things, things that exist and things that disappear, will act as a clue to understanding this world.
Artists: Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs, Eva Stenram, Salvatore Vitale, Maija Tammi, Risaku Suzuki, Tomoko Yoneda, Wataru Yamamoto, Shimpei Takeda and Masahiro Usami.
