About
On the boundary between human and nature
Equilibrium
2020 ACC Focus puts the spotlight on climate change and environmental issues with the concept, “Equilibrium.”

Equilibrium means a state of balance among different species in an ecosystem in terms of their types and numbers. The exhibition examines humans’ actions to maintain ecological balance on the boundary between humans and nature. In particular, it provides a glimpse into the memories of the participating artists regarding their surroundings.

Rather than serving as an environmentalist statement, the featured works present bits of sound and images from the artists’ surroundings, and highlight their social, political, and historic contexts.

To this end, the exhibition matches and compares works from artists from different Asian countries to discover their common features and foster a sense of empathy among Asian countries that will ultimately lead to peaceful coexistence and solidarity.

The number of species discovered by humans so far includes 3,500 species of mammals including humans, 8,600 species of birds, and 5,500 species of reptiles and amphibians, which comes to a total of about 17,600 species. These are only animals on land. If we include animals found in the sea, the number grows exponentially, to about 900,000 species. If we consider animal species that we have not yet discovered, the numbers are simply unfathomable. One thing is certain however: no form of life can survive without contact with water. This led me to think that all existing (or even already extinct) creatures are in the very water that we drink. This is an idea based on the principle of dilution in homeopathy.

Based on this idea, Natural History Museum (2019) shows all living things on earth through the medium of water. In the exhibition hall, there are hundreds of different kinds of glass bottles filled with water, and in front of each bottle there is a label that describes each species. Glass bottles are on display without bottle caps, suggesting that water is still moving and mixing with other substances.
