ARTIST STATEMENT ことしの1月1日、自然豊かな公園に出掛けました。その途中で、家にスマホを忘れていることに気付きました。 しまった、とおもう反面、よかった、とも思います。そういう日は、通知も何も気にしなくて良い。少しラッキーです。
しかし、手元にないと分かっていても、公園の良い景色の写真が撮りたくなり、ポケットの中を探してしまいます。 スマホで記録しなければ、その感動を完成させられないような気がするのでしょうか。 本個展では、そんな出来事を基点とし、WADA GAROU TOKYO Lab.でのレジデンス期間の中で生まれていく作品を展示いたします。皆様のご来廊を心よりお待ち申し上げております。
On January 1st of this year, I went out to a park full of nature. On the way there, I realized that I had left my phone at home. I thought “Oh dear”, but on the other hand, I was glad. On days like that, I don't have to worry about notifications or anything. I am a little lucky.
But even when I know I don't have it with me, I still want to take a picture of a nice view of the park and look for it in my pocket. Do I feel like I have to record it on my phone to complete the impression?
This solo exhibition will be based on such an occurrence and will show works that were created during the residency period at WADA GAROU TOKYO Lab. We sincerely look forward to your visit.

Kyaraai (b.1996 Osaka, Japan) The main theme of her work is 'self-perception in fluctuation'. In an age when we are exposed to diverse values through social media, has absorbed so many things that has lost track of what is right and what is wrong, even her own opinions and attributes, and feels a strong sense of uncertainty within herself, which she uses her art as a vessel to accept. Creates works that draw the viewer in with their original catchness, such as the large eyes like those of girls' manga that was familiar with as a child and the colors like those of fancy goods, and continues to create works that allow the viewer to communicate with the characters depicted in the works.
