All We Can Do is Pray
Three Japanese artists—Meiro Koizumi, Junko Harada and Natsumi Seo—have produced works that focus on the perspectives of marginalised people, including women, children and the elderly, in times of great loss. It features spoken, text and visual stories from World War II and the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami connected by the subjects’ sense of powerlessness over their destinies, carrying on from past traumas into the present day.
