concept

木曽馬は眠っている。
時が止まっているかのように静かに眠っている。
木曽馬は夢をみている。
苦楽を共にした義仲らとの日々を夢にみている。
木曽馬の時間は動き出す。
いつの日か義仲らとの再会によって再び時間は動き出す。

今回は「時が止まる」というコンセプトで、木曽檜の丸太にチェーンソーを使って作品表面に毛を作り出し、木曽馬を制作しました。

Kiso horse is asleep.
She is sleeping quietly, as if time has stopped.
Kiso horse is dreaming.
She is dreaming of her days with Yoshinaka and the others with whom she shared her hardships.
Time begins to move for Kiso horse.
Someday, when she meets Yoshinaka and the others again, time will begin to move again.

This time, based on the concept of "time stopping," I used a chainsaw to create hair on the surface of a Kiso cypress log to create the Kiso horse.
