I should be in my world but I am not in the world that I see. Do I exist as the missing part of this world that I see, or as some extra part? 

In order to make the world that I see a beautiful and perfect one, I must stop seeing. In front of my eyes that stopped seeing the world, a beautiful and unsubstantial world must be spreading out, too. Seijiro Niwa

Listen to the voice of two hands clapping. (Hakuin Ekaku, Monk in Edo Era) Two hands clap and there is sound. What sound does one hand make? 

Scheduled Events: 

Artist Talk “Frame and picture story” : 4 May from 14:00 – 15:30 

Frames that surround pictures. They tend to be let by as natural items at art viewings, but if you watch them carefully, you notice that they are very interesting. Here, picture frames’ making process and their design evolution afterwards are deciphered from the relationship with the space presentation of the picture inside and the place where it is displayed, also about his latest works.
