Meoto Iwa

”Meoto Iwa (夫婦岩), or the Loved one-and-loved one Rocks, are a couple of small rocky stacks in the sea off Futami, Mie, Japan. They are joined by a shimenawa (a heavy rope of rice straw) and are considered sacred by worshippers at the neighbouring Futami Okitama Shrine (Futami Okitama Jinja (二見興玉神社). According to Shinto, the rocks represent the union of the creator of kami, Izanagi and Izanami. The rocks, therefore, celebrate the union in marriage of man and woman. The rope, which weighs over a ton, must be replaced several times a year in a special ceremony. The larger rock, said to be male, has a small torii at its peak.” (Wikipedia)

Kamishibai

"Kamishibai (紙芝居), literally "paper drama", is a form of storytelling that originated in Japanese Buddhist temples in the 12th century, where monks used emakimono (picture scrolls) to convey stories with moral lessons to a mostly illiterate audience. "(Wikipedia)

It escapes me

Shortly after the accident at the nuclear plant in Fukushima, I left Tokyo for a friend's place in Itoshima, Fukuoka, while my parents stayed on in Tokyo. The title of the painting, "It Escapes Me," comes from how I have gradually forgotten the loneliness and fear that I felt at that time. The shape of my painting surface--that of a billowing cloud--is a reference both to the images of the explosion at the Fukushima power plant, as well as the indeterminancy of memory. This work is an agglomeration of images from multiple registers: the black smoke of explosion is the outcome of decades of overemphasis on infrastructural growth, but also a crystallization of the loss of one's home and of nature, and a sign of the displacement I felt as I wandered alone in the streets of Nagoya and Osaka when I left Tokyo.
