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.
