|Participating Project||Exchange Residency Program
(Creators from abroad)
|Period||2018.5 - 2018.8|
I have been interested in Monoha and the Japanese avant-garde. Because I can get a glimpse of their responses to art and present. I would like to meet various contemporary artists and broaden my horizons during this residency period. It will be especially helpful in developing a simple and natural artistic language. In addition, I plan to make moxibustion by casting the shape of my navel, and I will put it on fire in various parts of Japan. The moxibustion on my belly will look like a small volcanic smoke. It is a divine ordinance that cleanses the horror and fear of quiet, orderly routine. And also it asks the God of earth and sky to meet each other and to pledge life.
