The 74th Exhibition Takashi Kanome Box•XX June 4-27 ,1992

It has been a while since the big city, the symbol of prosperity, lost the essence of nature. The empty clamor of the nihilistic performance of robots given life by massive amounts of information and the volume of the sound of the fin-de-siecle gnashing of the teeth has sublimated spaces. The performance in which the outer shell, which has become empty because the substance has decayed, takes shape is a beautiful monument to sorrow. For the mummified outer shell, there is only the condensation of a sense of aesthetics which rejects life. It may be in that very empty space created by the lack of substance that there is the eternal romance sought by the cast-off shell.
