A theme of my art work is the body and memory.
When I was a child, I often broke my bones. This was because my body was very weak.
Through these experiences, today I think that a body is a fragile object. Furthermore, I have the feeling that my body is not my self. I feel a certain discrepancy to my body.
I work with the basic concept of „destruction and regeneration“.
This concept comes from my experience.
For this reason, I also use the method of collage. I try to destroy and regenerate the images of my memory in my art works.
We can see beautiful stars in the sky.
But I’m attacked by anxiety when I learned that these beautiful stars are hundreds of light years away, and traces of something that existed hundreds of years ago. I can’t help but wonder, “What am I looking at ?”
Maybe the stars I’m seeing right now don’t exist anymore.
Then, what is it I’m looking at now?
When you say [stars], are you referring to huge, heavy fixed stars, or you mean the delayed image that made by the light from hundreds of years ago?
I always make use of differences between notion and perception when I work on my art works; as in the difference between the [stars] that we know by observation and scientific reasoning, and those that we are looking up now.
I have a great deal of interest in the identity and difference in things.
When the notion and perception fail to match, we will inevitably doubt about the thing you are looking at. Just like I wondered what stars really are. What I pursue is how to make the device that changes the perception of something through the experience of wandering between its notion and perception.
