Ai Kijima (MFA 2005)
I make art to approach the core of life and to continue to present a vision of a better world. My art is to suggest a new level of creative expression. Crossing the boundaries by not accepting the criteria and the rule of art in a linear perspective, I approach to develop balanced relationships between inner and outer, high and low, personal and global, material and spiritual, intuitive and rational. It's the role of the artist to feel responsible for creating a world that harmoniously integrates and bring a hope to support future generations. I want to encourage my viewers to awake something what human beings originally have.
