DRAWING WATER (DIG-TOKYO)
- click images to expand and for further details -
As avid travelers, artists Rubii and Vanghoua have journeyed to many places to see, be near, be in, or on water. This installation draws out past journeys they have taken to water, and to journeys they have since embarked upon together in Tokyo and Nikko. These routes trace the artists' long distance travels across oceans, to short bike rides through the suburbs and countryside. What underlies these travels is the potent ability of water sources to draw us to them, in spite of the fear we may also feel that they may overwhelm and absorb us.
