The Moment - Artistic way of looking at sports

Let's Build Tokyo Together: Special Exhibition The Moment—Artistic way of looking at sports

The Panasonic Center Tokyo is running the Let's Build Tokyo Together interactive activity project. Authorized as part of the Tokyo 2020 Official Programme, this project promotes a wide range of activities featuring sports, culture, and education until 2020 bringing together children and young people, who will become major players in the next generation, with an eye on handing over our heritage to the Tokyo of the future with the participation of as many individuals as possible.

The upcoming event is a photographic exhibition with a primary focus on culture. The French duo Audic-Rizk, who have artistic roots in Tokyo, will express athletes' vitality to the max in photos and highlight their crowning moments with Panasonic's projector called Space Player.
Commemorating the 160th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and France, we will further boost cultural exchanges between France and Japan, and communicate the attractiveness of sports toward the Tokyo 2020 Games and the Paris 2024 Games through photographic artwork.
We will also have activities based on the theme "Sports X Photos."
Please come and join us!

Artist: Audic-Rizk

Profile: Audic-Rizk is a French artist duo formed by photographers Julie Audic and Christian Rizk. They studied in Japan for five years from 1998 and 2000 respectively as laureates of the Research Student Program scholarship awarded by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in Japan. While studying in Japan, they have developed artwork based on a photographic technique that they call "Intensive Photography," which does not involve any retouching or digital manipulation. With the reflection of atmospheric colors affected by light or humidity during the shooting process, their photos capture the dynamic intensities and motions of sports and athletes as art works. They have been active in giving shows in many parts of the world, including at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne.
