'This exhibition consists of works of photography and video which give us an opportunity to reconsider what the act of "seeing" means and through this experience, what perception should be. The subject of the works is what we see in our daily life, such as familiar interiors or ordinary landscapes. The viewer finds no elements of narratives left in the works, for they have been intentionally excluded or lost. There seem to be no leads for the viewers to form any relationship with the work, but this does not mean that they are closed to us. On the contrary, they are open, being full of "expectations", even in an open-ended way. The experience of concentrating on "seeing" and participating in the works, with the works functioning as kinds of visual instruments, leads the viewer to various findings.' - an excerpt from the essay by the curator.

4 artists participated in this exhibition including Mike Marshall and Elisa Sighicelli, both from the U.K. The names of the 2 Japanese artists can be found under 'Artists'. Biographies and selected bibliographies of artists are included.
