ARTIST'S INTRODUCTION / STATEMENT
From July 18th to July 27th, 2013, Art for Thought presents Sumi Takeshi's "BEYOND THE MEMORY" solo exhibition, showcasing the artist's boundary-breaking approach to photography. Sumi Takeshi’s images go beyond the traditional "fixation of time" and explore the new possibilities of memories and records. The exhibition features an array of photographs that challenge conventional notions of time and space, with blank spaces and light creating a new realm of possibilities.
In addition to the exhibition, Art for Thought hosts a series of related events that offer a unique experience of Takeshi's artistry. The workshop "Let's shine a light through your favorite photo!" on July 20th, invites visitors to bring three photos they don't mind scratching, and a camera (digital camera recommended) to participate.
