The Void Leads Your Memory
Tomohiro Inaba, an emerging Japanese sculptor, intends to create interactive communication with viewers by artificially creating blank space among his sculptural works and pursues the influence of void in the viewer's mind. By creating a “blank space”, the sculptor does not dare depict all of the expression. Instead, he intends to evoke the imagination of the viewer to incorporate the imagined image into his next works.
Inaba takes advantage of his outstanding painting skill and expresses the speed, feeling and curves of the line as if he drew them by using iron wires. Also described as three-dimensional painting.
In this solo show, different motif works inspired from previously created works using animal motifs, he proposes the commonality of the “outer line” and “image they hold” which is to say, the storage of each memory, the vessel of memory. Inaba attempts to clarify through his works, that they are all an accumulation of each memory by contrasting "living things" with "artificial things" though use of blank space.
Through his works, the viewer will revive and delve into each memory. The viewer will come to the realization that each memory is what makes the world, “World”.
