始まりも終わりも無い丸い大小の布はカオスと静寂、生と死を一つの画面の中に作り出す。「最初に目に飛び込む目を引く様な激しい色彩はアフリカの布ならでは、強烈なエネルギーを携えたこれらのデザインなくしてはこの作品は成立しません。布上の小さな細かい点は生き物の最小単位の細胞であり、それらは連なり広がってやがて宇宙を構成していく、そんなイメージで制作しています。」

Nirasawa chose African fabrics printed with circular motifs which acted as metaphors for the universe, cells and eternal life. The exhibition focused on her interest in the notions of chaos and silence and the adoration of life and death, all coming together in an aspirational dream scene of the imaginary universe she seeks. Nirasawa says “First of all, intense colours jump in front of our eyes. And the line of sight begins with an aggregation of small circles which are translucent and swollen like cells, and it will be guided to a circle of African colours that will soon go crazy. Then it leads to the each pieces and headed for the swell of energy. Ultimately, once again returning to fine cells, the entire work itself becomes outer space like a universe”
