The Statement

Born in Shizukuishi, Iwate prefecture in Japan surrounded by beautiful environment filled with vivid change of seasons, Takayuki Matsumine has grown up with rich inspiration from nature and strong influence of grandparents who took over the inheritance of local folk crafts from early childhood.

In the age of 16, the fatal ski accident and destruction to the cervical spinal cord has changed his life dramatically where he started to face against the value of life with holding intermixed emotion of desire to live and suffer from living daily life. And still the suffer from fatal accident is giving energy to ignite his motivation.

After suffering from that fatal accident, I was able to bring my unspread routine perception and action of everyday life onto the surface of the conscious mind.  “Ordinary” simply disappeared from my daily life due to the instability of my body and living conditions. One piece of chocolate was placed on a table, which I stared at as it slowly changed texture by the surrounding temperature. One piece of chocolate thrown into my mouth, which I needed assistance with from another person. When going through those processes you have a sense of vision, hearing, smelling, and tasting in your conscious mind, your perception of one piece of chocolate would become precise and special. 

“I can say that it’s easier now to avoid ordinary life since I only have active functions from my neck up such as my brain and nerves.”

On another front, there is no limit to my intellectual curiosity, expression, and inquisitive mind toward everything including ordinary things and senses as well as cutting-edge technology and science.  Those expressions sublimate and are seized back to the conscious mind. As a result, expressions are reviewed thoroughly and updated in new ways.

That accident has given me many things so now I can think of that accident as a “perfect moment”.  Even though I lost my physical function, my mental function has been still drawn to the gravity flow of the fluctuating present.

我出生于日本东北四季分明的地方——岩手县雫石町(Iwate-ken, Shizukuishi-cho)。我在野生动植物栖息,生命丰富多彩的环境中成长。并且从小时候开始,在继承地方民间工艺品的外祖父母的影响下,我得到了“创作”的机会。

十六岁的时候,由于一场致命的滑雪事故,我的颈髓受到了严重的损伤。同时,这场事故让我每天都在思考应该如何去面对自己的生命。想活着的欲望和后遗症带来的烦恼混杂在一起,活着的价值观在开始我在心底涌现。这场事故与每日的烦恼为导火线,每天在我的心里不断燃烧。

这展现出来的翻滚燃烧的感情和脑中的残像引起的神经元火花、对神经复苏的欲望、还有不断强烈突出的脑波,这些源自形成宇宙论的量子,和艺术表现结合在一起。这些以造型、装置、科学和技术的融合为首的作品作为燃料,一点一点地燃烧着,变更出新的考察。

“脑子、神经、这些头部残留的的能力还能留在我的身体,这对我来说刚刚好。”

这场事故给我带来的这些东西,对我来说是完美的。在生死之间抗争,所立体的表现出来的“现在”活下去的精神和的灵魂。
