exhibition's preview


works in the gallery

"Faraway mountain" 2006
white granite, size: hight=140 - 160 cm

At first, I divide 12 columns from a large block of white granite. Then I sprit each column to small pieces until which I can take by hand.
I put stone pieces back a column again. Each column has a empty space inside which can't see.
Faraway mountain is still in my mind, but it became so weak.

"FOREST - H1" 2008, white granite, size: 176 cm (hight)
"FOREST - H2" 2008, black granite, size: 70 cm (hight)

This is the first works that I started drill works which I use stone's drill to make holes.
Stone becomes transparency, also human's body is seen through by something in forest, my mind as well.
