This installation work restaged the mess of a home party, that was actually held, in the gallery space with videos and food replicas.
Making of the ‘Sokushinbutsu (Living body Buddha)’ （2009）
Nowadays the so-called “Japanese mummy,” or sokushinbutsu [a man who makes himself into a mummy of his own free will] is treated not only as a corpse but also as a Buddhist sculpture and a tourist attraction. This work attempts to make sokushinbutsu, without going through the proper methods and procedures. Sitting in front of the installation of Kurukuru Party, where a party wreckage was displayed using food samples, Inaoka used his body to create a sculpture of his own body in a state close to fasting.
