A Stray Deer wdose Expression Changes According to the Time

White Deer (Oshika)

KOHEI NAWA

DETAIL

Since ancient times, deer have been regarded as divine messengers or divine creatures in such beliefs as animism and Shinto. With their numbers increasing in Japan in recent years, the deer that sometimes appear in villages are called “stray deer.” White Deer (Oshika) was created based on the scanned 3D data of a (stuffed) stray deer that I ordered after it popped up online. Standing on the beach of Ogihama on the Oshika Peninsula, it looks up at the distant sky and turns toward the island of Inujima in the Seto Inland Sea, where its journey first began.(Kohei Nawa)

KOHEI NAWA

Born in 1975. Artist, Director of SANDWICH Inc., Professor at Kyoto University of Art and Design. Currently based in Kyoto. He graduated from Kyoto City University of Arts in 1998 with a Ph.D. in Fine Art Sculpture in 2003. He establishes “SANDWICH”, a creative platform for production in 2009. He explores the potentiality of sculpture, working with beads, polyurethane foam, silicone oil, and a wide range of other technologies and materials, through his original concept “PixCell”. Nawa's recent projects extend this exploration to architecture and performance, to create both space and art.

OGINOHAMA AREA

A white shell beach is the site of Kohei Nawa’s work White Deer (Oshika) and the Reborn-Art Dining event. Find the beach after walking past the oyster beds and going down a narrow lane. Oshika Village, along the prefectural road where the Hama-Saisai eatery is also located, is a key area in the campaign to generate new economic opportunities and various positive cycles of growth with the local populace.
