Dan Graham: I want to know why you do fountains.
Satoru Eguchi: why I do fountains?
DG: It reminds me a lot of some of Bruce Nauman’s work.
SE: He does fountains too, right?
DG: It’s semi-body art. In a way making fun maybe of traditional sculpture.
Peaceful, uneasy postures, flowing moves of soft black pencil lines, two look alike couple images, water energy that shoots up in the air that creates unemotional almost objects like portraits of me. Often situated in a room or in an open space the figures are interacting each other sometimes in harmony sometimes in conflict like my internal self. I grew up near mountains and sea in Japan. After moving to New York in 1998, I often think about bringing nature elements home. It’s my child-like desire to possess miniature river, lake or mountains into my drawing.
