The installation consists of numerous porcelain castings, all stemming from the departure point of a remarkably lifelike Japanese-made baby doll. The context of this work is crucial to approaching it; the exhibition has been assembled in an urban gallery in a busy postmodern metropolis. As cars rush through this industrial area, and fast-paced city life occurs outside, the artist has composed a subtle arena for contemplation that quietly asks us to reevaluate our individual ideals and values. At first glance Buddhism seems to be the dominating discipline driving the installation, but gradually one discovers a sensibility that encompasses a range of ideas that span several religious philosophies, those diverse as Christianity, Krishna and Hinduism.
