22.06.2011 Ohmaki Shinji –Eclipse of Life- “seeking the moment”

Artist Ohmaki’s latest work tried to crystallize the “moment” of the eclipse to trace the ray of sunshine in through the gallery’s huge window.

Many red flowers on the white floor caught people’s attention, and people who were just passing by the gallery happened to see his work and came into the gallery. (There were satellite exhibitions of Art Basel and people who walked around those exhibitions found our show by chance.)

Some people came to see “seeking the moment” around 6 o’clock every day. Because Basel’s weather was changeable, we hoped to see the moment when the weather was fine. Some people came back to see this moment and some waited to see the moment.
