変わりゆくかたち

transformare

(2017)

 

1/17

2016年に亡くなった家族。

最後に言葉を交わしてから数日後には、皮膚の色、息遣い、動き、意識が数分おきに変化していき、8時間後には亡くなり、自宅に戻り、2日後には骨になった。

葬儀など形式的な過程に家族として忙殺される中、最後に刻々と変化していった家族の姿を記憶に留め、その記憶を行ったり来たりするかのような、フリップブック(パラパラまんが)の技法で制作した作品。

One of my family passed away last year. Just a few days later we went to see him having chitchat and shaking hands, he lost his consciousness. His breathing, the colour of his skin, body movements had changed every minutes and then he died 8 hours later. We got busy organising all sorts of those practical funeral business, then in two days he was cremated and the usual daily life had started without him. I somehow wanted to remember his last transformation at the end of his life which became the idea of this flip book to be able to return to the last memory of him.

The final firm handshake


Rough breathing
Your effort to turn over own body
Hands reaching out to you
Rubbing the feet

Morphine

Looking at Mt. Kashimayari from the window


Mother's tears
A flat line
Futon laid on the living room


A lot of flowers

Fireworks at Kamekura town


The door was closed

 


Bones
