Stainless steel, granite, stainless wireKeiji Uematsu’s work focuses on unconscious and unseen matters such as gravity, attraction and magnetic field, and he invites his viewers to visualize and feel them as real. Moreover, through the universal law of invisibility, Uematsu tries to reveal the structure, existence and relationship among various things in the world. With Invisible axis – distance and angle, he confronts a persistent question, ‘What is the invisible?’ A stone and a stainless-steel cylinder keep balance with a center fulcrum set in the ceiling, which evokes our interest in the ‘invisible force’ between matters, matter and architecture, or tension and balance.
‘What I want to do is to make visible existence, visible connections and visible relations appear more clearly. And to cause non-visible existence, non-visible connections and non-visible relations to appear. And to cause visible existence, visible connections and visible relations not to appear.’
– Keiji Uematsu, 1972
揭示世間萬物之間的結構、存在和聯繫。透過《Invisible axis – distance and
angle ，他提出一個持續存在的問題： 何為無形？」一塊石頭和一個不銹鋼
關係消失於無形。」( 植松奎二 1972）。
