New coast, and a fragment over a woman.

Graphic art

KAWASHIMA Takashi [Japan]


This is a work composed of visuals and text, the ideas for which were gained from a family photo album discovered after the Great East Japan Earthquake, and interviews with the woman who owned them. Numerous fragmentary events are sewn together through texts, photos and graphics. The occasional insertion of deviating elements awakens the imagination of the viewer, with the intention of recovering a narrative.
