PRELUDE TO THE SAFE PLACE
January 23 - February 21, 2020

The sense of safety seems to be one of the most important human needs. But this is not obvious. It is a result of the earlier experiences and the acquired convictions. It does not fit into a once defined framework. It can be manipulated. And so, paradoxically, it may turn out that a small Japanese town situated by an active volcano is the safest place in the world, as stone statues guarantee the peace and quiet. Successive depictions of a minor deity, encountered during everyday walks, rise to the rank of vigilant friends. In the Japanese mythology, O-Jizo-sama is, among others, a guardian of travellers. He becomes a certain kind of a talisman for the artist; the act of recording his images and multiplying them in a compulsive manner means a wish of happiness and peace addressed to others.

 

“Prelude to the Safe Place” is a continuation of the actions performed during the artistic residency “Artist in Aso” in Japan in 2019.
