We exhibited works including all process for making with 20 artists, indeed an open production, among a month. It was first time that I painted all wall, inside and outside, too. At the same time, it was one of compilation exhibition for me that I have exhibited my works twice there. The following is what I was thinking of, at the time:

01

I tried to give an affirmative meaning to my various mental scenes and past memories, as blending with a phenomenon around me now. I think I could shift a thing from a boring daily life to an exciting one that a human being makes efforts for recovering as "I am living now." Not only for personal level, involving other people, it connects to our life force which broke out from buildings with memories involved, cities and personal memories, and to mental images of this society nowadays. These are lively colors and shapes that I imaged at the moment, as I live now. Through this joint exhibition, I would make my new memory for an affirmative meaning to me that I an living.
