JUNKO has always been fascinated by creatures, both natural and fantastical. Since his childhood, this fascination has been a growing theme in his art. He considers the space where he displays his sculptures as a form of “habitat” for the artwork, a unique space where the artwork can exist in harmony with the environment. By creating sculptures with waste materials that inhabit the environment in which they live, the sculptures become a reflection of that environment. The location of the artwork is as important as the artwork itself, in terms of the overall impact it has on the viewers. JUNKO seeks to make its sculptures breathe in a space that enhances them, a space that gives them a sense of place and depth. By creating the installations in such habitats, the artist aims to offer explorers a different perspective, another dimension to the waste from which the sculpture is created.
