Core Passages

Core Passages

1979
Sculpture, Stone
I have attempted to expand the variety of carving. The drill, a hole with a coring tool, is a rotating pipe studded with diamonds. A hole is made, but not only a hole. The residue and the core are to be valued for themselves. One carves the whole of the hole.
Original Noguchi Collection
Quotations by Isamu Noguchi from The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum (New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1987), unless otherwise noted. The Noguchi Museum gives thanks to the many talented photographers who have documented Isamu Noguchi’s works, particularly Kevin Noble, who has photographed the Museum’s collection for decades, and Shigeo Anzai and Michio Noguchi, whose portraits of the original Museum installations continue to provide inspiration and insight.
