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.

私はセミや蛇の抜け殻を目にした時、それらが人間にとっての自画像や自刻像に似ていると感じた。そして、成長に伴って身体の痕跡が残される行為が、表現の本質的な原理であるように思えた。その脱皮行為は自身にとっての制作と重なり、私は表現として成長を行い、脱皮を体現したいと考えた。
