Tokyo, Japan  – WEBWIRE

Panasonic Corporation is holding “The Moment” from October 2 to December 2, 2018. This is a special exhibition authorized as a project to celebrate the 160th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between France and Japan at the Panasonic Center Tokyo (3-5-1 Ariake, Koto-ku, Tokyo). This exhibition is the second round for FY2018 of the“Let’s Build Tokyo Together” (*) interactive activity project.

It is a photographic exhibition with a primary focus on culture. The French duo Audic-Rizk, who has artistic roots in Tokyo, is expressing athletes’ vitality to the max in photos and highlights their crowning moments with Panasonic’s projector called Space Player. The event is also offering activities based on the theme “Sports X Photos.” 
Through the exhibition sponsored by the French Embassy in Japan and other organizations, Panasonic will further boost cultural exchanges between France and Japan commemorating the 160th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, and globally communicate the attractiveness of sports toward the Tokyo 2020 Games and the Paris 2024 Games through photographic artwork as a Worldwide Olympic Partner and Worldwide Paralympic Partner.

Panasonic will continue to contribute to fostering the Olympic and Paralympic Movement through these global initiatives.

Profile of the exhibiting artist Audic-Rizk

Audic-Rizk is 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. 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 works of art.

* Authorized as part of the Tokyo 2020 Official Programme, the “Let’s Build Tokyo Together” 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.
