Bottomless Thirst


Artist:Shinobu Soejima


Material: Paper Bag, Resin, Metal For Water

Project: Tokyo Midtown Award 2016 Art Competition

Paper bags have been left on a busy street as if forgotten by their owner.
The passersby glance curiously at the bags.
What could be inside them?
One of the bags is filled with water, but there is a hole at the bottom that goes down deep into the earth.
It is unsettling scene that gives a glimpse of people’s desires and their bottomless thirst.
