Icons of time: Memories of the tsunami that struck Japan

Photography by Tomohiro Muda
March 1 – April 15

After 3.11, Tomohiro Muda took his camera to the coast of northeast Japan and photographed objects that the receding waters of the tsunami had left behind. Muda’s work leads us to imagine the lineages of these objects and, in doing so, build our own mental pictures of a pre- and post-tsunami landscape.

Venue: The Japan Foundation Gallery
Gallery hours: Monday – Friday: 10am – 6pm
Selected Saturdays (March 19, April 9): 10am – 3pm
Closed Sundays and public holidays
Admission is free.
Icons of Time is part of Art Month Sydney 2016
