“Nothing that has appeared in this world can escape its ultimate destiny: to disappear. Even memory, though anchoring for the time the afterimages of all these in the endless flow of the ages, is no exception. Thus it is hardly surprising that memory and disappearance had fascinated. I try to resist this vanishing and keep the memories.”

Mari explores the concept of memory through two groups of work created in 2013 and 2014.                    

Parallel World   

Where does a “Parallel World” exist?

Can one discover this world through time travel?

Is it perhaps possible to see this world in a dream?

Or does it only exist in one’s heart?

The world we see is only a part of the entire reality which is composed of many worlds existing simultaneously, side by side.

We can find “Parallel Worlds” whenever we open our eyes and hearts.

They are always with us.                                                       

 Landscape

I saw the old garden.  Plants and a cluster of old buildings no longer used.  There, in this space, the relation between interior and exterior, between nature and the artificial, is ever so ambiguous. 

Time is frozen, but the plants are there.  I would like to show the silent revolution of plants.  Before man built cities, there was just nature, which we tried to control.  As soon as we stop regulating nature, it tries to reclaim its territory.
