Being Here and Looking There
During the ‘Less in More Again’ symposium, I made two works. The first is
a monumental outdoor sculpture in the field. There is also a group of
seating elements and bowls.
In my work, I refer to the stars in the heavens. The title of the
sculpture out in the field, ‘Being Here and Looking There’, makes this
clear. The stable elements stand firmly on the ground, anchored, as it
were, but their direction is upwards, giving a sense of seeking contact
with the air above.
The shape of a star can be recognized in the bowls and the seating
elements. When people sit on them, I hope they feel like they are among
Restfulness, simplicity and silence are characteristic of my work. These
factors are always a presence in my sculptures. Through my work, I seek a
way to make these factors, which are essential to me, visible to others.
