- Description: The sculptor says 'Once a stone is split, the action is irreversible. But if the pieces are fit perfectly back where they used to be, it is as if it is one piece again. This is the main idea of this sculpture. One block of red granite rock was split into over 40 pieces and reconstructed in the original shape, except the inside of the block has been cut and polished into an irregular sphere. This sculpture plays with the physicality and character of the natural stone as a vessel to contain and remember human memories and experiences. It looks as if all is as it used to be, yet there is a certain difference, something formed within.'
"Nostalgia" was made while Katagiri was artist in residence at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop in Lumsden as part of the Japan 2001 Festival. Katagiri had worked at SSW every winter for five years from 1983, helping to establish stone carving facilities for SSW while developing new ideas in his own work. The title of this piece partly came from revisiting rich experiences at SSW, as well as from the structure and intention of the sculpture. Made from the same type of granite as "21 June 1985". This piece was first exhibited at Peacock Visual Arts in Aberdeen (2001) and in "Lyrical Abstraction" joint exhibition with Kate Thomson at Mellerstain House in the Scottish Borders (2009~2012).
