Pigeon and Puke


pencil and Watercolor on paper
30 x 42cm

On a Saturday morning, I saw a pigeon eating (cleaning) someone’s vomit on the street. The situation was interesting to me because pigeons are generally considered an injurious bird and vomit seems to someone as bad. I accidentally found out that it existed as a chain of circumstances created by negativ factors like math. Even though it was seemingly creating a virtuous cycle among the unpleasantness, I could also imagine that the pigeon would be dropping a mess later with what he just ate. The text was about such a situation that starts to have some meanings by accident and its appearance seems contradictory. I got inspiration for an idea of this exhibition through that situation. Basically, the idea meant to try to play with emotions that would be impossible or not easy to put into words and were created by human trait. There mightn’t be a way forward to sorting out such emotions despite people would sometimes feel them. I thought however that just getting confusing with them could be inherently sure exciting to us. Then I intend to enjoy the emotions befor these are categorized into words.

 
ハトとゲロ, 2015

 私はある土曜の朝、道ばたで嘔吐物を食べているハトを目撃し、その光景に惹きつけられた。その光景は害鳥として扱われるハトが嘔吐物を掃除していたため、まるで負と負同士が数式のように調和され、そこでは良い循環を生み出しているように見えていたからである。しかし、私は同時にその光景の背後に隠された違和感を感じ取った。その違和感の正体は、その鳩が数時間後にするであろう嘔吐物を食べた後の糞の存在である。当然そうした事実を知っている私以外の人間にとっては、それはただの糞であり、その場において鳩はただの害鳥と見なされるだろうが、 私は視覚と認識のずれによってそのように一時的に価値観を一転させ、答えがぐるぐると変化する状況を面白く感じた。私はこの光景から展示全体のアイディアを得て、そして、言葉にすると消えてしまいそうな感情や偶然性と遊ぶことをテーマにし、ものや動物、他者との相互関係によって発展する作品制作を試みた
