The Stone Body V -KAIBUTSU-

Black granite

110×120×176 (h)cm

I carve into the stone
From that moment, the presence of the stone becomes increasingly vague
As the stone takes in my strength
Its mass dwindles
Strength and time build up
Indentations gather
Eventually, the sum of them overflows and clusters together
I think that’s when my work really begins
I want to feel the presence of a stone that has begun to have its own body
* “V” in the art work name means the fifth of the Roman numerals.
