I exhibited 69 of the ready-made product“OKUDAKE” at the Kobe open-air
sculpture show in 2000.
The title of my work is also the name of
product itself. In Japanese it means
This shell-shaped“OKUDAKE” is a toilet cleaner that makes toilet water blue, and it common in Japan
.Every night, the tide came in and covered it. Of course, it made the sea water blue.
During the show, a fisher man called the police, saying my work was causing
pollution, and that it should be removed.
Therefore, I ask that all OKUDAKE be removed from Japanese toilets, for
the same reason.
