旧坂出警察署お別れプロジェクト/ Sakaide Police Station Art Project

sppzumen.jpegseisakutyu.jpeg

取り壊し前の 旧坂出警察署。
場所が持っている「念」のようなもの。
その場から出ている はじめは重々しかったその空気も、
私らが出入りすることによって、
エネルギーとエネルギーがぶつかりあって
静かな渦となり、浄化されていく。
そこで制作した私自身の作品も、
私自身もその瞬間からまた新たなスタイルに変わった訳です。
13人の作家の作品展を「静廻」と題し行ったのですが、
ある意味その場の浄化作業を行ったようなものでした。

今はもう取り壊されてしまったのですが、
その「念」のようなものが 浄化されたことを願っております。

The art project took place
in an old police station scheduled for demolition.
Thirteen artists moved in to create works of art
in a farewell tribute.
Empty for many years,
it still retained traces of the emotions
of former detainees and police officers.

The atmosphere at first was oppressive
but the energy of the artists as they passed in and out
collided with the residues to create a vortex that purified the air.
From that moment on,
the style of my work changed and so did I.
We called our exhibition Shizume,
which means to bring tranquility or to appease,
and in a sense it was a purification rite.
The building was subsequently torn down
and we hope all the spirits there now rest in peace.

I stayed alone for several nights in one of the detention cells.
The darkness seemed very deep and sounds echoed eerily.
While I painted, I felt as though I was being watched
and then gradually that I was being guided to paint
what the watchers felt.
