ありがとう: Chairs Are People
“Upon entering the last door in a long hallway, attendees are welcomed in Japanese and English before receiving shoe coverings and a brief overview of the space. Photographs of Japanese forestry and urban scenery, paired with handwritten poems on bits of unbleached paper, grace the walls opposite a projection of clips featuring similar subjects.
