One is Many Many is One

When we count something as “ one “

This is the beginning of dividing the world

Which in fact One as a Whole But, can we see whole

of the universe? Can we count ONE?

1979-1998の20年間ロンドン在住で作家活動。1998年帰国。「いかに私たちの世界の理解の仕方が、対立や分断を生んでいるか」との考えのもと、内/外、表/裏等の対立、区別関係が、実は言葉の上だけの存在であることを具体的に証明する彫刻や、私たちはそもそも世界の全体を見ることはできず、部分しか見えないことを経験する場としてのインスタレーションを制作・発表している。近年の個展に、「寺内曜子 パンゲア」 豊田市美術館(2021, 愛知)、「寺内曜子展 満ち潮 引き潮」ふじ・紙のアートミュージアム (2021, 静岡)、「スタンディング・ポイント1 寺内曜子」 慶應義塾大学アートセンター(2017, 東京)、「寺内曜子の赤と青」かんらん舎(2010, 東京)など。

Yoko Terauchi moved to London in the late 1970s to attend Saint Martin’s School of Art and returned to Japan 20 years later. She has exhibited widely at museums and galleries in Japan and abroad. Terauchi’s practice began during a period of doubt in her study of sculpture, giving rise to works that challenge tenets and values we conventionally set in opposition to each other, such as back and front, inside and outside, and good and evil. By choosing to neither add to nor subtract from a lead plate or sheet of paper—by respecting the form a material takes on its own—Terauchi demonstrates her belief that “there is no opposition in the world. Recent solo show include "Yoko Terauchi 'Pangaea'" Toyota Municipal Museum of Art (2021, Aichi), "Yoko Terauchi "Yoko Terauchi Ebg & Flow" Fuji Paper Art Museum (2021, Shizuoka, Japan)、"'Standing Point 1' Yoko Terauchi" Keio University Art Center (2017, Tokyo), etc.
