Shitamichi Motoyuki (b. 1978, Japan) assembles and categorises things he sees, experiences and collects. He gathers fragments drifted from the strata of time, illuminates them under the light of the present and, in this way, connects the stories of the past to the here and now. This process manifests in the form of photographs and films as well as maps, objects and texts.

Following the archaeologist’s method, the artist explores the layers of time, with interest in which traces of the past remain in the present. He captures landscapes altered by natural disasters or urban development, collects fragile and fluid signs of artificially partitioned boundaries, and discovers everyday objects and stories behind mundane events.
