2018 Exhibition View (a prat)

Kenji Yokoya is an artist who transforms such packing materials as corrugated cardboards-that are only intended to be used practically-into an exquisite spacial and formative art. Wave-form sections inside the cardboard are converted to appear in the outside, and they are reconnected to create square poles. Those poles are hanged in the air standing together. By interfering each other’s movements they create shadows which then invite us into the meditative moments.

"Today our daily necessities, papers, have been reproduced repeatedly. They are turned into used papers and no longer have previous forms of plants. This material, trees, have once been carrying out photosynthesis. The water absorbed through their roots grew their leaves and stems and gradually built a forest.
Since they are used papers now, I shall rely on the memories of the forest again and try to build a temporary forest gathering the remaining pieces."
