Solo Exhibition "edge", 2015 at GALLERY MoMo Ryogoku
VOLTA NY 2016

A wolf tries to trace his lost past.
Hunters try to obliterate the past.

The distant memories when the wolf was human motivate him to travel.
He goes back to the past again and again.
Being the sport of the past and plagued with the past, he sees the present.
The white horn in the forest calls a yak, and he tells the wolf what happened in Japan a long time ago.
The clear horn in the forest calls Wolf Shadow, and he tells the wolf his past.
The things that we have to remember are in the edge between the past and the present and they have waited for you to visit.
