作品コンセプト | Concept

Inspired by the philosophical adage, l'existence précède l'essence (existence precedes essence), Pure examines the complexities of "living together" as both a unit of family and society. Pure is driven by the perpetual cycle of tension and compromise that accompany every form of social interaction. An inevitable consequence of Man's fundamental craving to belong. We may own the freedom to decide our individual actions, but so long as we exist amongst other humans, we can never escape the full forces that dictate the ebb and flow of existence. They are one and the same no matter the varying shapes and forms that manifest within different cultures and societal tiers.
