When the world was plunged into the coronavirus pandemic, all kinds of sorrowful thoughts and ideas came rushing in from throughout the city. Water ladles disappeared from shrines, and supermarket shelves were emptied. The world was about to be newly reborn. I kept pondering about the role that art could play in such a world. And then, as if all of the ideas I had received from the massive swells of the earth had filtered through me, my mind became pure and innocent, and I was able to continuously project those thoughts into this artwork. And finally, the one thing that remained, was "supplication."
