【Exhibition Overview】
Whether in work, in love, or in expression, nobody wants to tilt at windmills or watch someone else doing so.
However, there are some who might at first glance appear to be wrestling with themselves, but are actually locked in battle with something that the viewer can't see.
Perhaps it feels very odd to watch someone repeatedly winning and losing all alone. But if you imagine why they've chosen that means of expression and the kind of world they arrive at by sticking with it, there's actually a kind of divinity that wells up from deep within it.
I named this "SUMO Alone".
