Quote: “I personally like small corners …”

 

Miwako Tezuka: You spoke about your previous installation that used “a small gap.” How do you decide where to position your work, and what would you like people to see?

Yoshihiro Suda: I personally like small corners or marginal spaces — suki-ma, literally “empty space” in Japanese. I feel comfortable in them. What makes up a space is not just its center but its peripheries: everything including its corners. If my work can make people notice something that they would normally dismiss, I think that is good.

MT: There is a possibility that some might not even find your work.

YS: “Cannot be seen” is also part of the spectrum of “seeing.”
