Ecdysis, 2011

I smeared my body with the wood glue and tried to embody a concept of ecdysis like of snake or cicada. The trigger for this attempt was that I had felt their empty shell as a trace that presented an essential, biological expression. In terms of human expression, I therefore believe their biological growth mightn’t remind of a progress to the death, but rather “how do we resist the death”. For this reason, expression of all creatures intended to growth, particularly ecdysis have been attracting me, and I tried to see if I could actually grow up through my ecdysis and perform an inevitable expression like them.
