Facing the Void: A Conversation with Toshikatsu Endo
by Karlyn De Jongh


Toshikatsu Endo’s sculptures confront ancient times and urges. With materials such as bones, wood, water, and fire, they become primal devices leading back to the essence of human existence. For Endo, art is a special field that oscillates between linguistic and non-linguistic tendencies, that can use construction and destruction to go beyond the limits of language.

Fountain, 1991. Burned wood, tar, and fire, 75 x 130 cm. each.
