At Sol, one part of the wall is painted in magenta.
This color, discovered by Goethe, is a combination of red and violet,
which respectively are the lowest and highest colors of the visible spectrum.
Red is most heavy with long wavelengths signifying Roughness.
Violet is light with short wavelengths signifying Delicateness.
Hence, in Japan, violet is commonly used to represent the highest rank.
The words, “reason is formed by the height of culture and the height of animality” represent this ideology;
when the extremities of the vulgar and the refined exist, instead of combining both and diving it in half,
it is the intuition of going both directions simultaneously.
This is what is referred to as the Middle Way in Buddhism, meaning when exact opposites exist,
one does not take what is in the center but encloses them both.
Sol’s aim to synthesize the man-made, contemporary and western, with the natural, antique and eastern,
alludes to the meaning of the color magenta, which signifies a mixture of opposite colors.
Thus, magenta is the symbol of the Middle Way.

不揃い

都合のいいタイトル、つけたもんです。
コンセプチャルと言うべきか。
いよいよ明日から、baco、rereの個展です。
本日設営。

ディスプレイの大枠は決めてたけど、細かいことは成り行きで。そんなんその場にならんとわからんことっていっぱいあるやん?
スパイラルに行く前に、ホームセンターと福中へ。
案の定、探してたものは見つからず、その代わりに、それ以上に気の効いたものをいっぱい発見。
子供用ハンガーとか、木のスキー板とか。使える!

不揃いってだけに、いろんな素材と色とテイストを織り交ぜて、梅雨の時期なので、楽しい雨降りもイメージして。

是非、足を運んでみて下さい。
Spiral Marketにて。
