Dazaifu Tenmangu Artprogram vol.3 Maiko Haruki “unify”
With the goal of “showing something that rests in the spaces between people, between photographs, and throughout nature,” Haruki shot new photographs on the motifs of Dazaifu Tenmangu and Mt. Homan especially for this exhibition. This installation expressed, through photographs and plants, the “spaces” that Haruki sensed when viewing people, forests, trees, fire, mountains, rocks, and the Shrine.
