Kiichiro Adachi (born 1979, Osaka, Japan)
We eat vegetables and meat to survive, cut down trees to build houses, skin animals for fur to protect ourselves against the cold. The weight of all lives may have been equal at some point, but somewhere along the way, we have come to deprive others of life forourownluxuryandgain.Yet,conversely,weattempttoprotectandconserveendangeredspecies.Wedon’ tfeelguiltyabout killing cows and pigs, or pulling out weeds, but it is a focus of criticism to kill “intelligent animals” and to destroy prized trees and plants. We demarcate which lives we can take and which are protected via religions, cultural traditions, the ethics of epoch, and so on. However the line of demarcation is ambiguous these days. All lives might have equal value, but still it seems there are differences between each life.

Tomoyuki Ueno (born 1982, Kobe, Japan)
The view of the world can be expanded by the balance between embodiment and abstraction or space, with this perspective as principle, my works might resemble a poem. The works are experiences of the extraordinary, which are to see the reality from a different point of view. The depth of the view of the world is how it reflects the reality. The experience of the extraordinary makes our realization frameworks to objectives. At the beginning of my artwork, the theme was time or how to change our perception and to see the fact. In recent years I have been making my works about national borders as well as national anthems and also I try to realize monism. Oneself and the others or oneself and the world, such dichotomies make you see the world one-sided. I think that is important to exert influence on instinct to realize that there are not such borders physically as well as conceptually.

Daisuke Takahashi (born 1980, Saitama, Japan)
Takahashi creates abstract paintings. His painting is excessively painted over and over, Its thickness is composed of positive and negative. His work is also likened often sculptural , with reference to the history of painting , it ‘s the trace that was fighting on the canvas.
