Tam Ochiai at Tomio Koyama


Names, dates, places, things we scour like On Kawara paintings hoping to reassemble and collate some sense from. But the signified, the thing, continuously withdraws. We'll never actually regain or conquer or even know. Names, dates, things are hidden behind the curtain of their signifier and us all looking at blank paintings trying to grasp the thing they have purposely lost behind words for us.
