The 2nd Awarded Exhibition of Jimei x Arles Curatorial Award for Photography and Moving Image
10 YEARS OF THREE SHADOWS +3 GALLERY

SAME SEASONS, DIFFERENT MEMORIES
Curator: Park Haeni
Most of us experience a variety of seasons in our lifetime. Though they may come and go in cycles every year, each season has its distinct color, temperature, and fragrance, as well as moments perceived differently depending on individual experience that are consequently remembered independently. We fill these seasons with our daily routine and livelihood without any special occasion; only to later realize that countless memories were being … more
