“Is trash, trash?” Online Exhibition

Is trash, trash? August 2021 Exhibition of the Japanese Contemporary Artists Team NY

 “Is trash, trash?”

Trash that’s lying right in front of our eyes.
Trash that we produce every single day in our lives.

Things you’ve been calling “trash” according to your definition of the word:
are they really “trash?”
Before throwing them away, why don’t we ask ourselves once again?

Beauty resides even in the ugly.
Things you feel are trash:
they are also capable of showing their own beauty.

Hoping for the world where the trash will no longer be trash,
let us exhibit the beauty that we can only express with trash.
