Kazuro Okazaki’s works are developed from the unique idea of an “addendum.” The meaning of “addendum” here is the addition of a thing or an idea that had been overlooked. By adding small additions from the inside to the outside, and from parts to the whole, Okazaki’s works cause a minor disruption or disturbance. HISASHI is Okazaki’s iconic ongoing series. The title is derived from the name for the eaves (Jp. hisashi) of a house. Let us think about this for a moment. At present, you are inside of a building. However, the moment that you are confronted with the HISASHI works affixed to the wall, doesn’t it seem like you are now on the outside of a building? This is a small part of the mystery created by the “addendum” of HISASHI. This uncanny quality only gets deeper.
