I am interested in Japanese and Ainu heritage. Through them, we can find the spirits to be considerate toward human, creatures, nature and even things we cannot see. That is what we’ve lost gradually since we started to chase convenience and also the very thing we should take back to coexist on Earth. I ‘d like to let people have this planet and its crews in mind through my work.

It's impossible to run nuclear power plants as long as there are people who love their benefit more than human rights. Take it with a grain of salt, it's still impossible to run them since they discharge hot water and radioactive waste even in normal condition.

古くから伝えられる日本やアイヌの民俗信仰を探ると、人々が近代化につれて失いつつある、人間や動植物、それ以外の存在を畏れ敬い、気遣ってともに生きる姿が浮かび上がる。一方今日の私たちは、我々の暮らす地球をより深く考える時期にあれども、叫ばれる声の響きはどこか空しく矛盾して、口碑にあるような淀みなき流れを見つけることは難しい。私は、今我々が観ている未来が時に押し流され弱められぬよう、今を生きる我々がこの時代にこそ見るべき物語を織り出したい。

Background image for YUZU heading to YUZUNOMI by EllieOkamoto
Background image for YUZU heading to YUZUNOMI
Acrylic on Arche paper
40x57cm, 2016

Costume design by Kazuhiro SAWATAISHI kazuhirosawataishi.com/profile…

This painting was commissioned by YUZU, a Japanese folk and rock song duo, for their 20th anniversary concert in Tokyo Dome. It took a bit long time to fix the composition and more for researching the motives in the source, but it was quite fun to be with the exploding passion of the townsmen through this work. Thankfully YUZU invited me to the photo shoot. Surprisingly, the photo was taken with no manipulation but in a huge set. And how lucky am I, I could listen their live performance of "Amenochi Hallelujah" without any amplification. It was such a sweet, and dreamy moment for me in these harsh days of writing dissertation. I hope all of YUZU fans spread their imagination for the upcoming concert in November.

特別展示
『百鬼夜行絵巻』『付喪神記』江戸時代後期 國學院大學図書館蔵

概要
「異界」とは、自己の世界と他者の世界とを分断してとらえた異世界のことです。動物と人、現世と来世、この世とあの世といった、自己が存在すると認識している世界とは区別した外側の世界を意味します。

 ふたつの世界のあいだには、領域を隔てる「境界」があり、空間や秩序を区切る「結界」があります。境界や結界を挟んで人は、現実と異界を往還し、時には異界からの訪問者である鬼と遭遇しました。人は、異界とともに暮らしてきたのです。
 社会の狭間で不安や痛みを抱えながら生きる現実と、心の奥深くで畏れ、向き合う闇のなかでひそかに存在感を放つ異界。わたしたちは今その境界にたたずみ、異界の存在に気づかず生きているのかもしれません。
 本展では、いにしえより多くの絵師によって繰り返し描かれてきた『百鬼夜行絵巻』『付喪神記』の鬼を案内役に、現代人が見失ってしまった異界を白昼の美術館に甦らせます。恐ろしくも美しい異界への扉をひらくのは、心の闇を見据える13人の現代アーティストです。現実のなかに突如としてひらく裂け目をのぞき込み、この世界の変容を感じていただければ幸いです。
