Takeshi Inomata, Tsutomu Yamamoto: Talking Tree

Artist Statement:


    I met with one driftwood at the dry riverbed in Kiso-River. Where had it extend its roots, and how had it spent? There are much information about the kind of the tree on books and website. However, they do not answer the thing which I want to know truly. They do not approach me with the tree’s lively being. We accustomed ourselves to the information sucked out of the thing too much. I want to find the intrinsic information in its being. But it is very difficult. At least, I want to hear the tale of silent voice by touching it calmly.
