Curatorial Statement

Lights off

the empty exhibition space



it has nothing

it has only itself


Without exhibits, the exhibition space is just being there and waits for the next rebirth

each exhibition is a rebirth of the exhibition space and becomes a new self



you read a promotional leaflet

you read an exhibition title

you write down the date and time

you plan to go to this exhibition


on the day you have written down

you walk to somewhere which is either familiar or unfamiliar

you walk into an exhibition space

you see an exhibition about the exhibition space itself

you see it showing itself within it

and then

you ask

where the works are

this is just

an empty and dilapidated

field of nothing



I write down the day

I walk to somewhere which is either familiar or unfamiliar

I walk into an exhibition space

I see an exhibition about the exhibition space itself

I see it showing itself within it

I hear the voices of this exhibition space

I read the whispers of thoughts of this exhibition space

I see the images of memories of this exhibition space



as he wished

he touched the moment of its rebirth

he touched its transformed body and soul

he measured its emotions within it

and offered

even the ambiguous
