リコレクション―ベニヤの魚 Recollection: the Plywood Fish, Yoshimi Arts, 大阪







広島・香川の島々を巡ったフィールドワークで収集した記録資料を祖父に見せると、祖父は当時を思い出しながら、魚雷の絵を描いた。
作品には潜望鏡が取り付けられ、私が島をめぐって収集した写真をのぞき見ることが出来る。潜望鏡からぼんやりと見える像は、当時彼が見たものかもしれない。しかしどの写真もいまの景色でしかない。彼が見た風景をすべて捉えることは不可能なのだ。

When I showed my grandfather the photos and documents I collected from this field investigation, he began to recall his memory and drew a picture of
the torpedo. There is a periscope attached to the torpedo, through which one can look into and see the photos that I took on mytrip around the islands.
The vague images seen in the periscope may be what my grandfather saw at that time in the past. But all the photos are scenes of the presents, and it is
impossible to fully capture the sights that he had actually seen.
