You may think they're visible but they're not. You're always just a stitch away - from words. They come closer to you at times, and draw away at others. They appear to be understandable when in actual fact they are not. They may encourage you or hurt you. The impalpable relationship they create is somehow similar to that between a man and a woman. This show present you with some works that make it possible to "view words." View - not read, write, speak or hear. In fact, it may afford you your very first experience of viewing words.

solo exhibition【WORDS TREE】at London.

Venue: BODHI gallery 214 Brick Lane London E1 6SA
Dates: April 27th ? May 15th 2007 (Opening Party on April 26th)

This project is the first installation of its kind, about utterances expressed through contemporary Japanese calligraphy. HATCH's radical approach, an impromptu combination of self-written poems and utterances in the Cafe, aim to highlight our casual and often careless disposition of something so vital to our daily lives. Born in Hokkaido, Japan, the purity and self-renewal properties of nature are his source of inspiration. Using the walls as his canvas, his writings take on the form of trees growing over the course of the exhibition eventually forming a forest. The final outcome is a spontaneous collaboration between him, the utterances of unaware participants (Cafe’s customers) as well as music specially composed for this exhibition. HATCH invites you to explore and experience this new and modern approach to the age-old tradition of Japanese calligraphy.
