In this exhibition, "Unspecified Landscapes," BUoY (the venue) was used as a material to sculpt the independent thoughts of mankind, leaving behind living traces.
Concrete is said to have had its original form as far back as 9,000 years ago. Concrete, which in Japan is a metaphor for rapid postwar economic growth, is a material that humans unknowingly leave behind while being a symbol of safe residence for them. In order to stand and live on land, human beings pave it with concrete. In disaster-stricken Japan, this structure is particularly evident, and everyday sand and gravel are transported, mixed with cement and solidified to erect buildings. The cement is not consumed for its own once the chemical reaction is complete.
Eventually, the building breaks down and is reduced to rubble, which is then taken away by the local government.
Stratigraphy is a symbol of the past, not circulation, but accumulation.
It is a space to learn about the workings of humankind, where layers are piled up without knowing what is buried underneath.
