Takamijima Project

Artwork No. ta04

keep a record

The passage of time revealed through the visual gap between outside and in

On Takamijima, where time flows gently, a stranded house retains traces of those who once inhabited it as if awaiting its master’s return. Within, the artist has installed a white cube with new walls, ceiling, and floor. Taking as her motif photos of the island’s abandoned buildings and old photos recovered from them, she created a painting that conjures up the past, presenting the paradox of time stagnating within the abandoned house while it flows fluidly within our lives outside.
