text: artist’s note: it was very quiet when I visited New York for the first time in 2001 / it was Christmas, so most of the shops were closed / I wandered around the city and its museums, and finally got to see many works of Abstract Expressionism and Minimal Art in person / until then I had only known them from books / the area where the twin towers of the World Trade Center once stood was a covered construction site, and one couldn’t see anything inside of it / buildings next to the site were also covered with large tarps / at a park nearby there were many flowers and messages for those who lost their lives / the sky was empty / I remember someone started singing a Christmas carol while I was on the subway, and other passengers joined in the singing / I thought that people in the city would be indifferent towards one another, but they were not / somehow there was something there that we could all share / February 2015 // FOR MORE INFO ON KOKI TANAKA SEE DEUTSCHE BANK KUNSTHALLE
