Title : 2016年8月1日

2016年8月1日にパリ市の決定により清掃されたパリ・レピュブリック広場の、

テロのモニュメントと化した銅像を撮影した作品。我々の記憶はどこに行くの

かを問いかける。

 

For this work, I photographed the bronze statue in Place de la République

on August 1, 2016. Due to a decision made by the city of Paris, the statue,

which had become a monument commemorating the victims of recent

terrorist attacks, was cleaned – its flowers, candles and graffiti were

removed. This work questions where our memories are going.

 

Title : 年輪 / Tree Rings

「安らかに眠ってください 過ちは繰返しませぬから」 シリーズ「年輪」より

過ぎ去った年数分、額に入れた慰霊碑の写真の再撮を繰り返した作品。

 

“Let all the souls here rest in peace, for we

shall not repeat the evil.” from the series

“Tree rings”

In this image, the number of framed

photographs of the Hiroshima Memorial

Monument for Peace corresponds to the

number of years that have passed since the

event.
