    This is the fourth of the Wa no Contemporary Art (和のコンテンポラリー) exhibitions. The objectives of this project are to create one continuous circulation of art from different cultural backgrounds, and to contribute to the development of our local culture through our international cultural and artistic exchanges. The exhibition includes work by artists from overseas as well as Japanese local artists and art students. This year’s theme is ‘TIME’.
    The exhibition was held at Hiunkaku, Tamamo Park, Kagwa in Japan,
    from 12th to 19th August 2017. My photographic work ‘Sea-light-scapes’, was selected for this exhibition.

    Bibliographical note

    The first and second exhibitions of the Wa no Contemporary Art (和のコンテンポラリー) were held in 2013 and 2015 in Japan, and the third at Baltic 39 (Northumbria University), Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom, in 2016.
    The exhibition was held at Hiunkaku in Tamamo Park, where there used to be a second private house of Yorinaga Matsudaira, the 12th feudal lord of the Matsudaira.
    Hiunkaku was built in 1917, and is an important example of Japan's historical architecture.
    The castle is used as an art museum. The exhibition was held at night (except on some weekend days) to create a time-lapse space, distinguishable from our ordinary life. The artists were asked to consider how they could consider the theme of time-lapse, within the main theme of ‘TIME’.
