Artwork No. 143

From Birthing Hut to Mourning Rites

Sensing the calm flow of the concentrated atmosphere on Honjima, the artist focused on the ryobosei system of double graves. Double graves refer to the custom of preparing two graves for the deceased, one for the burial of the body and another for visiting. The work is a place for gazing calmly at life and death, for connecting the power of the past to the future, to convert the atmosphere of the island and the energy that gushes out of the earth into a given form.
