Intro
A couple of little birds build a nest in our front yard. A squirrel comes. The birds do their best to chase away the squirrel. The squirrel quickly finishes all four tiny baby birds in the nest and leaves. Everything goes back to where it begins. No one ever questions why and life goes on. Nature is beautiful and interesting. We, human, are part of nature. By observing nature, it guides me closer to understand myself. Everything is Anything and Nothing is a result of an attempt to search for forms or matters that represent the existence and the non existence simultaneously. The main material used in this work is fine dust of recycle paper which is a waste from a factory produces paper core from recycle paper. The exhibition consists of 3 groups of work.

Temporary Linked is actually a body of work that came before the “Everything is Anything and Nothing”. It represents existence and nonexistence in a linear sequence. From a seed, a plant grows, then it blooms, fertilises, bears fruit, withers, and dies. We were born, we live, and we die. From this concept, dust was chosen as a main material. Patterns appear on the pieces are imprints of objects that used to be there. The objects once were there, existed and related to the other objects and surroundings in different ways. After that, the objects were removed. Only imprints re- main. The imprints trace and tell about the existence and the relation of the objects and the surroundings as they were before they disappeared. We focus on our existence. Worry for the imprints we will leave. But on what are they imprinted? Even the piece itself, that now carrying the imprints, is impermanent. It is made out of dust, ready to disintegrate into fine dust again as well. I look at a cloud; I see power of the wind. Wind is invisible and intangible but wind could cool down its surrounding. It exists and not exists simultaneously. It would be nice to live like wind, exist and not exist simultaneously. Not shaken by misfortune, loss, suffering as we do not exist but let our existence nourish others.

Anything and Nothing series 1 is made of dust that was turned into pulp. Then got twisted in between a sheet of cloth. Water was eliminated and the pulp became solid. The shapes were planed but not completely design. The process is partly controllable and partly uncontrollable. After the twisting, the cloth was then removed. The paper dust pulp took shape of the gap in between the twisted cloth. Its texture is an imprint of the cloth on its surface. The cloth is not there anymore but its appearance, the invisible force and action clearly appear on the piece.

Anything and Nothing series 2 is made by placing the dust outside, on atelier’s veranda during rainy season, day after day beneath the rain and the sunlight. Surface of the pieces take its shape from the raindrops that fail and hit on the fluffy paper dust. Then the sunshine dried up and hardened the pieces. Outline and size of the pieces were decided but they are shaped totally by nature. I guess life is just like this. It consists of actions of ours and of the Nature.

We label things with titles and definitions.
Since then they are marked with different values.
Since then we struggle to pull certain things close and push certain things away. Since then we fight, we protect, we sacrifice, Find excuses to hold and to hurt, to care and to kill.
You and me what are we, If not only lumps of dust Compressed with selfness, Wait for a day to disintegrate into fine dust again
Without labels, Everything is Anything and Nothing.
