Kento Terada

When we asked for rewrites through crowdsourcing for this project, we included questions about "family images" to explore the vacillation between the demands of society and the individual thoughts. Although Terada was not involved in the program as a participating artist, the narratives inherent in his photographic works, in which he himself appears, provide the viewer with a margin for "family images." Terada participated in the group exhibition "Realizing Humanness" (April-May 2021, Alt_Medium, Tokyo), and also appeared in the related talk "The Family in the Future: From the Perspective of Family Law"(Japanese only) with researcher Kazuki Matsuda and another participating artist Sanghyun Park.
