About the artwork

The artist noted the cracks in the wall caused by the earthquake and created a work that let viewers notice the history of the house by presenting the cracks in a different way. The potato project, where real potatoes were replaced by ceramic ones halfway during the exhibition period, carried a message that we are all unique, just as no two potatoes are the same, having different bumps, sprouting in different places and having different ways of growing.
