不在の状態を提示することで存在を証明できるのではないかという試み。受話器を取ると私への留守番電話が再生されるが、そこには私自身の姿はない。私がどういう人間なのか判別しようにも終始不在なので、他人が語る出来事や家族の言葉から輪郭線を浮かび上がらせることになる。鑑賞者の想像で補完された「私」を垣間みることで、作者の存在を認識できるのではないか。

Talk to me

2015 / art space kimura ASK? (Tokyo)

This work attempts to see if the existence can be presented by the absence.  When you pick up the phone, you’ll be automatically connected to the answering machine. ‘I’ will be absent for the whole time no matter how hard you try to figure out what kind of person ‘I’ am. But you can still get an outline image of me through the stories told by others or words from my family. Visitors can see whether they can recognize my existence by the glimpse of the externalized [ME] along with their imagination of  [ME].
