Catalogue Note

Hiroshi Sugimoto represents in his series Sea of Buddha the splendor of an eight-hundred-years old installation of the thousand-and-one Senju Kanon statues installed in a temple in Kyoto: Sanjῡsangen-dō, or Hall of Thirty-Three Bays. Through a precise composition and repetition between the images, Sugimoto creates an infinite space, a Sea of Buddha, referring also to the religious and historical concepts that guided the original creation of the statues.
