つづれおりProject Work 2005Tsudureori (Tapestry) / Project Work 2005

Concept

私の故郷に住む89歳と85歳の祖父母と87歳の祖母。

戦時中の彼らの古い写真を映像として甦らせた時、そこには生への不安と空気に満ちていました。

そして現在、夫婦である祖父母には、ともに生きる幸せと力強い生命力が溢れており、夫に先立たれた祖母には、亡くなった祖父を感じつつ、死を内包した清らかな生が感じられました。

戦争という大きな歴史をくぐり抜け、生き抜いてきた人間の生。3人のそれぞれの人生は、1つの織物のように強く織り重なり合いながら、現実として今も尚存在しているのです。

My father's grandfather of 89, grandmother of 85 and my mother's grandmother of 84 lived in my hometown.

When I restored as a movie made by their old pictures during the World War Ⅱ, they were filled with an anxiety and an atmosphere of life.

At the present time, the old couple of my grandfather and grandmother were brimming over with happiness of living and their powerful life force.

I felt my grandmother outlived her husband were living in a chaste life involved the death.

The human's life passed through a great history of the World War.

Each their life are overlapping each other as well as one "Tapestry" strongly and still in experience as reality.
