The first collaboration between Japanese artists Taisuke Koyama and Takashi Kawashima showcases two contrasting perspectives on the role of nature in our digital world. While Koyama uses photography to depict the relation between natural processes and humanity, Kawashima’s video works depict the futility of human existence with the help of fictive storylines. Through this unique juxtaposition, the exhibition reveals the tensions between nature and mankind with both a chilling rationale and devastating emotion.
