curated by:

Grass. Fire. Water

The title of the exhibition, Grass Fire Water is a display of the images from; When the green alongside the street becomes empty, where once was dense. A match flamed for a moment to light the birthday candle. Grandmother's body without moisture. All three of them as a similarity in temporariness.

'My Grandmother was like a withered grass when I saw her a few years before she died. While I was massaging her legs, I suddenly reminded me of the moment, that I picked the withered flower from the vase to throw it away. The touch of her legs was the same with the withered flower. Vanitas Paintings, which I always loved, slid by. I wanted to capture the process of the falling of blossoms on an image, as it is likewise the human life. The repetition of painting and erasing has no difference with the thing that we are struggling to live.I wiped the image I drew yesterday out, which was less withered than today, and recorded today on it. Erasing the paintings was a bit regrettable, as it feels like I was vandalising my labours. However, it seems that I wanted something vague. Like the yesterday, our tomorrow is also unclear.'
