Question the body and the world, by the medium

About Artist

Solvent for dissolving paint, transparent volume like water or air, skiny things like clothes and walls--. I consider every "intermediary thing" a medium.

I have been interested in the possibilities of such medium, applied it to problem solving. By the medium, I have challenged to interpret the body and the world trapped in logical grammar.

I think of the body from the medium, from huge installations to small tableaus, I endeavour a number of creative challenge.
