Richard Long’s Walk Works in Japan: Transference

Eriko Yamaguchi (University of Tsukuba)

British artist Richard Long visited Japan to create some of his his works. His walk-works do not remain on the earth but disappear when Long departs the location. From his walk-works and his conception of transference, this paper will consider the aesthetics of perfection and imperfection.
