'Map' is a series work on the basis of a number of exhibition maps that were used in a same gallery. I collected archives of exhibition maps from the galley. After that I edited and put them on a sheet of map. Each dot represents the location of the past works in the gallery and each size of dot correspond with the size of work. In this work, I tried to illustrate a number of sites within the gallery across time and space as if in celestial maps. The celestial maps allow us to recognize numerous stars, constellations and galaxies that exist in different spaces and times are illustrated on a sheet of paper. The specific spatial description greatly fascinates me. I installed the map made from the archives of exhibition maps into the same gallery as if the gallerists put for exhibitions. Accordingly, the viewer could receive them in the same way as an ordinary exhibition and explore the artworks that were not in there anymore, following the map. The important thing of spatial interaction in this work is the nested space. The gallery spaces are contained inside other spaces and can be described at different levels of abstraction.

 

本作品は、過去に開催された展覧会の会場図をもとに制作したものです。会場となったギャラリーでは、これまでに16の企画展が行なわれました。各ドットはそれぞれの作品の位置を表し、サイズは作品サイズ(3辺計)をもとに6つに区分しています。作品のもととなるイメージには星図があります。星図は異なる距離や時間に存在する星々が一枚の紙に描かれてたものです。そのドットの集積は、遥か彼方の存在を私たちの手の内に引き寄せます。そこには肉眼ではみることの叶わない星、すでに亡くなった星も含まれているかもしれません。作品は会場床に束に重ねられ、通常の展示と同様に受け取ることができます。鑑賞者は会場図を手にすでにない作品(過去に存在していた作品)を巡って行きます。
