Solo Exhibition “FLICKER”, Gallery Side 2, Tokyo, Japan 2006 (December 22nd – January 26th).

 

I wrote a novel for this exhibition, something that happened for the first time. Up until that point, I have only expressed images from a reader’s point of view.  In the exhibition, both a writer’s and reader’s viewpoints were made into the work shown. By writing a novel, I felt that the words took a more flexible, transformable shape similar to clay.  By creating sculptures from those words, I was able to sense my fantasies taking a more concrete form.

いままで読み手である自分のイメージを表現していたが、この展覧会にて初めて小説を書いた。この展覧会は、書き手となった自分のイメージと、読み手となった自分のイメージの両方を作品にした展覧会である。「小説を書くこと」は、言葉が粘土のように柔らかく変容できる個体になると感じた。あわせて彫刻が、自分の文章から制作することによって、空想が鉱石のように強固な物体になっていくような実感を感じ得ることができた。
