DFS Group, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer has proudly supported CONTACT ZONE, an annual exhibition of contemporary art from Hawaii.

Now in its fifth year, CONTACT ZONE features artwork that explores local cultural exchange, and encourages emerging local artists to expand their talents and promote their creativity.

T Galleria by DFS, Hawaii was one of this year’s exhibition venues and will host an installation and photography series by Hawaii artist Taiji Terasaki until the end of June.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be supporting the local Hawaiian art scene by showcasing Taiji Terasaki’s work. Partnering with CONTACT ZONE, and in particular Taiji Terasaki, gives us the opportunity to expose artists’ work to the thousands of international travelers who visit T Galleria by DFS, Hawaii each day,”said Megan Escamilla, DFS Managing Director Hawaii.

Taiji Terasaki said he was honored to be partnering with DFS in the display of his large-scale light box photography series “Mist Over Kaena Point”.

“Through my photography I aim to capture the otherworldly environs of Kaena Point, a location on the westernmost tip of the island of O Ľahu that holds spiritual significance to the Hawaiian people. The mist element helps to illustrate nature’s beauty as well as its fragility and vulnerable state.”

“A key part of my installation is the “Sublimer”, a mist viewing box, where visitors look into an enclosed space and view images projected onto water vapor, providing them with an experimental opportunity to actively participate in the artwork,” said Taiji.

Taiji Terasaki’s “Mist Over Kaena Point” is currently on display on the first floor of T Galleria by DFS, Hawaii.
