Sculpture

彫刻
2002 — 2018


When I returned to school for my second BA, at the School of Visual Art in NYC, I became more interested in sculpture. Sculpture makes space itself. I enjoy using this versatile plastic mesh material for my sculpture.

彫刻で空間を作るということに惹かれています。2002年から使用しているプラスチックの網は、まだまだ面白い使い方ができそうで楽しんでいます。


I am Here

By Michio Mado

When I stand here,
Nothing else can stand over me,
At this very place where I occupy.
If there is an elephant here,
Only the elephant could be here.
If there is a bean here,
Only the bean could be here.
Nothing else.
On Earth,
The existence of being is protected and treasured as such.
No matter what it is,
No matter where it is.
And it is the existence of being,
More than anything else,
That is the most wonderful thing on Earth.
