Exploring Boundaries Through Art
Kuribayashi Takashi is known for his installation artwork centered on the theme of boundaries, borders and limits. His fascination with borders began during his time in Germany after the fall of the Berlin Wall. His works encourage viewers to imagine what lies beyond the border; for instance, a marshland hidden above the ceiling of a stark white room. Another work shows moisture frozen in the air to reveal what cannot be seen, such as the threat of radioactive contamination. Through his work, he seeks to reveal what lies beyond the border, hidden in plain sight.
Kuribayashi's works create awareness of the boundaries that are present in our lives
