behaver in everday life.jpg

This work focuses on the relationship between vision, body sensation, and memory. This art work consists of indoor and outdoor landscapes created from daily activities such as walking, opening and closing doors, cutting and knitting as elements within the artwork. I would like to establish an intersection between my experience and audience’s daily activities in order to create new meaning of the conscious and subconscious daily movements as performance art. This house is owned by my Professor, Koji Enokura who is one of the famous "MONO-HA" artist along with Japanese "GUTAI".  Twenty years after his death, only female artists in the professor's class exhibited at the professor's house and galleries. When I visited this house in preparation for this exhibition, I wondered how he was spending his daily life in this house.  I also use this door as metaphor of distance, here and there, present and another world. The person in the picture is Professor Enokura's wife.
