Armchair and the Lightning / 2022
Video, Approx 5min
During the quarantine, Hirakawa had a mystical experience at his home while sleeping at night. He witnessed a scene in the living room, cluttered with kids' toys, diapers, a kiddie pool, and a slide, all illuminated by the flickering of midnight lightning. Strangely, he also saw himself lifeless on the armchair in the middle of the room. This eerie moment was captured by Hirakawa himself, giving birth to the artwork titled "Armchair and the Lightning/2022." This piece marked a turning point in his artistic direction.
