Labryinth made entirely from salt

Motoi Yamamato has again used salt to create a monumental floor painting, which he refers to as ‘his Labyrinth’. His latest piece, found in Toulouse’s Fondation Espace Ecureuil, is another feat of artistic labour: 50 hours of work over five days and 2,200 pounds of salt.
The work is an exercise in catharsis: in Japanese culture, salt is a symbol of purification and mourning, and he started sketching with salt to honour his sister’s passing from brain cancer. As with his previous showing in Cologne, when the exhibit closes, Yamamoto will invite patrons to dissemble the labyrinth and take the salt with them to scatter in the sea or soil — anywhere it might contribute to a new beginning.
