HETEROKARYON


youkobo ART SPACE (Tokyo, April 2008)
In some primitive organisms such as fungi, it has been discovered that there exists cells with two nuclei called Heterokaryon. I was drawn to these innocent, primeval organisms because I thought that they contained hints for how I can live and produce work. Just as how we are unable to fully grasp the scale of a large camphor tree’s roots growing beneath the soil, the world that we are able to comprehend is limited to the most superficial phenomena. It is a similar sensation to feeling left behind amidst all the hustle and bustle of our world today. I attempted to convey a renewed, acute awareness of this emptiness and fragility of our era.
