The Tree Diagram That Overlooks


youkobo ART SPACE (Tokyo, May 2009)
The theme of this exhibition was inspired by my grandparents’ oceanside house in my hometown. Beaches and fishing ports were my playground when I was a child, and in these places, windbreaks used to protect crops from the sea breeze lined the land like a barrier between the ocean and everyday life. At this home, I have a faint memory of seeing a fallen camphor tree with exposed roots teeming with crabs who were nesting in the crevices. I believe that this indelible scene from my childhood and the tangled-up emotions within me today are mysteriously linked.
