Work / Education
What is a strand?
The strand in my work (string or thread) stands for a symbolic form that contains implicit memory and is repeatedly depicted as a strand (implicit memory) next to a strand (implicit memory).
The strands (implicit memory) are repeatedly woven, as in knitting work, and untied or tied in the process of expression.
Woolscape (wool + landscape)
The ‘Woolscape’ (wood + landscape) image is positioned on the boundary between the reality of the object and the symbolic expression defined by the artist. The interpretation of the work embraces the dual aspects of minimalism and realism.
The intricate images shown in the process of drawing strands repeatedly arouses viewers’ curiosity and situational imagination regarding the story. While this work may seem realistic, it can be ideally seen as a symbolic pattern from which to read the structure of modern society. Although the repeated process of drawing a strand a day little by little can be monotonous, the acts of connecting and separating are generated within the relation between an individual and society which is the beginning and end of the day.
The concept of work
In the process of drawing woven cloths strand by strand, viewers can read the structure of modern society. Focusing on what it means to be an individual in a grouping society, the form of a strand, the minimum unit, does not stand out. It is just a part of larger clothing. However, the way strands are unwoven, tied, entangled, and embracing each other suggest a way of life in our society.
Like a sweater made up of small strands that warm people, small roles of individuals that might seem trivial, perhaps, form the grand identity of our society, making progress towards the brighter future.
The repeated action of lines carrying the neutrality of drawing, which is the artist’s intention, makes viewers think about the passage of time and feel human internal sensibilities from each work, suggesting a landscape akin to our society.
