At present, we are not concious of the importance of the existence of life. Without giving it a thought, we eat a slice of fish or a piece of meat bought in the supermarket. And yet, in doing this we are involved in intervening in a life's existence and killing living things.
Human beings must kill many living things and use them as food for survival. From ancient times, this has been been universal.
But while we humans killed and ate living things for food, at the same time we had a feeling of awe and gratitude toward life and living things.
I want to reexamine the meaning of the action of “EATING” and this has inspired me to create the Food Body series. It is nowadays forgotten that the desire to eat relies on the sacrifice of another..
I feel full of fear that we a heading towards a future society in which we mindlessly consume the lives of living things.In my work in this series, I want to confront many people with this fearful and terrible prospect.
