According to Shigeo Toya, “The human urge to create most likely originates in a certainty that something exists where there is nothing.” Toya’s sculptures and discourse up to now, including this exhibition “Body of the Gaze,” have retained consistency and the body of his work is an example of how his sculpture discourse can develop over time. With his new artworks, Toya skillfully visualizes absence, which can be culminated in a mass carved by flashes of his chainsaw, or “the gaze,” to be more specific. This is a chance to witness a part of the 72-year-old sculptor Shigeo Toya’s half-century-old sculptural view.
