EXHIBITION: PICTURING THE INVISIBLE
Over the weekend, the Heong Gallery’s exhibition Picturing the Invisible will be open 12-5pm each day. Curated by Dr Makoto Takahashi, this exhibition seeks to provide a vivid depiction of the social and political realities of life in the wake of ‘3.11’, the Great East Japan earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima Daiichi disaster. Picturing the Invisible brings together seven talented photographers, working in the affected territories, each bringing a different perspective to the theme, touching on radiation, trauma, and the resilience of those communities rebuilding their lives.
Full details for each film, the exhibition, and information for booking can be found via the booking link.
