About shingo yoshida
My artworks are site-specific, which is why I travel to many countries around the world. An essential task within my work is to adapt to various lifestyles and social codes. What I have realized ever since being exposed to various conditions is the fact that we humans live in a state of powerlessness and nothingness in the face of nature.
Our human existence is a humble one. Yet, that feeling of meaningless is sometimes disrupted by an experience of surprise due to something magnificent. My main goal is to reconstruct the memories of such experiences. Since I have become aware of how little my own existence is, I feel the need to investigate it. This is done by means of comparison: I try to find almost forgotten or lost legends and myths that are hidden somewhere in the world. Ultimately, this is the reason why I continue to undertake those long journeys.
