La séparation, Yoshikatsu Fujii

Red string de Yoshikatsu Fujii from Tipi Bookshop on Vimeo.

Avec une grande délicatesse,  Yoshikatsu Fujii reconstruit les liens familiaux en déplaçant les fils cassés de l'amour marital vers l'amour filial. Ces quelques centimètres qui séparent les deux livres, centimètres désormais infranchissables, qui coupent une photo de mariage, comme si la séparation était déjà là, dans le geste initial, sont peut-être ce qui me touchent le plus de ce livre sur le divorce.

«I received a text message. "Today, our divorce was finalized." The message from my mother was written simply, even though she usually sends me messages with many pictures and symbols.  
I remember that I didn't feel any particular emotion, except that the time had come.
Because my parents continued to live apart in the same house for a long time, their relationship gently came to an end over the years. It was no wonder that a draft blowing between the two could completely break the family at any time.

In Japan, legend has it that a man and a woman who have a predestined encounter have had each other’s little fingers tied together by an invisible red string since the time they were born.
Unfortunately, the red string tying my parents together either came untied, broke, or perhaps it was never even tied to begin with. But if the two had never met, I would never have been born into this world. If anything, you might say it is between parent and child that there is an unbreakable red string of fate.»
