Eguchi Ayane “Viscera of the Vast Land”

* Gallery Closed from 4.8 [Wed] Until Further Notice

2020.4.3 [Fri] - 6.21 [Sun]

This exhibition features Eguchi Ayane’s new oil paintings, watercolor paintings, three-dimensional works that were produced while she stayed in Indonesia for one year. Eguchi will express her unique perspective in theme of “accepting conflicts and contradictions,” by using as motifs tropical plants, ocean animals, corals and graffitis seen in the city of Jogjakarta.

I saw a ritual sacrifice during the Muslim festival. They cut up cattle and goats on the spot as sacrifices, prayed, and ate them afterwards. It was the first time for me to see the organs that were freshly cut. The row of slippery sacks that fell out of the goat’s stomach was beautiful. It is subtly different to the organs I associated with from learned knowledge. This was more similar to corals in the sea and plants above ground.
Afterwards, I began to think about my own internal organs.
Why do the plants in the sea and on ground, and even in humans all bear same shapes?
There are organs in many places that are normally unseen, and I want to be able to slowly turn it inside out and see them for myself. This desire fused alongside the encounters with Indonesia’s sea, plants and animals, culture, and graffities in its cities, are what inspired my work.
