Quote by On Kawara

He never shows up in public such as at the openings of shows held in New York, where his studio is located. Even if one passes by him in Soho, he would probably not notice the artist. I saw Kawara several times when he visited a gallery, and although he had piercing eyes, he had a thin face and an inconspicuous, plain look, and did not seem like an artist. By hiding amongst the crowd, and isolating himself by becoming anonymous, he makes his work an empty signifiant that allows the worldly events to pass by indiscriminately, and at the same time, he tries to make us feel the whisper of the existence wriggling behind it which cannot be erased.
