Anna Bedynska
photo exhibition
04/06/2021 - 06/06/2021​​​​​​​
Open: 12.00 - 19.00

We are pleased to announce first exhibition opening ONA project room featuring Polish born, Tokyo based photographer Anna Bedynska. 
Once a year, hanabi, a huge fireworks show, is organized on the Tama River. This show attracts nearly half a million people. It gets so crowded that festival guidelines stipulate that only a maximum of 90cm by 90cm is allowed on the lawn for one person!
The “90x90” photography series was made during the morning preparations for the show, yet this is not a story about fireworks, it is a story about Japanese mentality, coexistence in a group, respect to others - 心 遣 い kokorozukai.  This is a cultural recognition of privacy in a public space.
