副題 出会う前に戻れぬ骨は誰が骨か。元来、日本において女性は神格化されることが多かった。
伊邪那美のような狂気も醜悪さも当たり前のように彼女たちの中にはあるというのに 。

From ancient times womanly figures were often the subject of defication as part of the nature. Today, the female form is over-glorified with aspects desired by men highlighted, men who are often in the position of defining these standards.

We dream to return to a time before Adam and Eve took the forbidden fruit, when the pure animalistic side of humans and relationships was present.

Billions of years ago, we, just single cells, had achieved intelligence. Then we learned loneliness, joy of mingling and…

Living, Moving, Touching, and Receiving answers.

And now our bodies are hear, in every single moment, with full of hearty love.


岩本 大紀 Iwamoto Taiki
