GRAY ZONE


SWEET EMOTION (Tokyo, May 2010)
This exhibition took place at a restaurant that was once in Nishi-Azabu called SWEET EMOTION. Stimulated by this space that was different from typical galleries, I was led to explore the idea that the world cannot be separated into black and white, and that sometimes the things we seek lurk in the gray zone that eludes easy categorization. The development of Japan into what we know it as today can be seen as a struggle between the East and the West. Treating this tension not as a hindrance, but instead as an opportunity to expand one’s horizon, I drew parallels to the perspectives I gained from living in a turbulent society filled with oppressive forces.
