PUBLIC AND FREEDOM
2016
Art center Ongoing, Tokyo, JAPAN
Installation
Public space we share to live in the society. When the endless landscape where infrastructure is well developed exist before our eyes, I feel an overwhelming authority I can’t compete with as individuals and I thus feel helpless. Infrastructure is political. As a result, the emerging landscape is political. However, we don’t realize and have an interest in those repeated landscape all the time. Tiles on the side walk are arranged regularly even if nobody ask to do so. Trees on the median strip are arranged at the same height before we know it.Tiles on the side walk are arranged regularly even if nobody ask to do so. Trees on the median strip are arranged at the same height before we know it. It is because that they are replaced with our common landscape and they exist naturally. Politics makes our world common.However, when we look at it carefully, our real world isn’t easy to understand and isn’t organized. Chance events occur simultaneously and become complicated. They make up this present moment in an exquisite balance.Cars parked on the street become a part of the landscape actively. Illegally dumped furniture and household appliances lost their functions and exist as a part of the landscape. “Public and Freedom”, a solo exhibition, at Art Center Ongoing, I attempt to recreate our world as natural, the chaotic situation where truth and false are mixed and unpredictable.  I also try to explore the possibilities of the landscape. In a sense, I attempt to release the landscape stolen without noticing and find out freedom through the exhibition.
