Two ponds of the Japanese garden are drawn
with a thin line on the board.
this line is divided and rearranged.
It is a work like to dismantle words into one and one sound.

展示場所や状況に応じて、板の位置や表裏の置き方が変わり、ラインが分断され並べ替えられることで、言葉を1 音1 音に解体するイメージが重ねられています。

“The rocky coast / 3board with paper 荒磯”

Acrylic on wood, plaster and alminium, variable, 2018

TThe installation work in the solo exhibition "Repeating Mountains and Rocky Coasts" is further abstracted here,and downsized like Japanese "Bonsai" or "Bonseki" in which the landscape is downsized. Three " boad with paper", a punched aluminum and a plaster ball exist independently. But at the same time, by collecting them, they can become to be a "rocky coast" of the Japanese garden.
