Primitive man,I can see better

  • ギャラリーの扉を開けて足を一歩踏み入れた瞬間、私は躊躇してしまった。なぜなら、足元の数十cm先からは本物の土が隙間なく敷き詰められていたからだ。スペースの中央には木が横倒しになり、地面には雑草が生い茂っている。木の根元には斧の刃先が突き刺さり、枝の先が壁を突き破っているさまから、切り倒された時の衝撃のほどが窺えた。枝や地面には矢が何本も突き刺さっており、ここで狩りが行われていたことは明白だった。どうやら私は、古代の森に紛れ込んでしまったらしい。

    どこからか私を目がけて矢が飛んでくるかもしれない。そんなかすかな恐怖を感じながら空間を歩くうちに、入口近くに原人をイメージさせる陶の面が吊られていることに気づいた。これ以上開かないほど大きく目を見開き、彼は何を見ようとしているのだろう。木の根元のガラス製の青い斧の刃先には、“Primitive man, I get it”という文字が刻まれている。

    それを見た時、英語“theory”の語源であるギリシャ語“theoria” が「じっと見る」という意味で、転じて「知」を意味することを思い出した。情報が乏しい時代に生きていたギリシャ人にとって、見ることは物事の本質をつかみ、世界を把握するための知を得る手段だったからだろう。さらに200万年遡る旧石器時代の人々にとって、見ることが重要だったことは想像に難くない。なぜなら、暗い森での狩猟・採集は、敵や獰猛な動物が近くにいないか、木の実や草に毒はないか、よく見て“ I get it”と確認しなければ、命を落とす危険性があるからだ。彼らにとって、「見ること」は「生きること」と同じ意味であったといえよう。

    かたや、現代に生きる私たちはどうだろう。マスメディアやインターネットを通じて手軽に得られる情報によって、自分の目で確かめていないにもかかわらず知っているつもりになったり、膨大な情報に翻弄されて本質が見えなくなる場合が少なくない。

    かく言う筆者も、ギャラリーの方に「所々、雑草が偽物なんですよ」と教えられて、初めてそのことに気がついた。そのいくつかは見つけられたものの、「本当に見えているのか?」とあらためて作家に問われているような気がした。

  • Rainbow Ball

    A sculpture rising from the fragile tension between its inside and outside, the soap bubble is a tiny cosmos that reflects the outer world enveloping it. Born of a single human breath, it briefly portrays a flickering virtual world in ever-changing colors and then disappears.

    Bathed with light, all things that enter our field of vision sparkle on our retinas. These material phenomena derive from nothing more than a play of conceptual surfaces; there is nothing there for us to grab.

    In such a world, what is it that we truly see? I make art in pursuit of an answer.

BIRTH,MEMORY

1997

While inside my mother's body, I evolved into a person from a single cell. What did I see during this process.

Into sculptures made of earth, I wanted to carve the world "BIRTH" and the word "MEMORY". But since there were other letters carved into the works, these two words were unrecognizable.
When I was born, I had no language.
It is the memory of cells engraved within me.
