Body performances highlight the oneness of humans and the universe, and function as a medium for connecting with the intangible world through “prayer” or “dedication”. Such essentials of ancient Asian traditions as gigaku masks and bugaku performance (which entered Japan along the Silk Road 1400 years ago) are introduced here through Miro Ito’s photographic art under thetheme: “World Cultural Heritage of Life and Prayer”. If humankind is a multitude of “thinking bodies”, can we not be considered “praying bodies” as well? Ito’s art activities introduce Asian/Japanese unique traditions of body-mind unity — a quest for the “Fundamentals of Life” towards enlightenment — in selected forms of body expression from 1400 years of venerable traditions for the future.
