‘The unmasking turn of mind’’ does not try to refute ideas, but to harm them by exhibiting their ‘‘extratheoretical function.’ (HACKING, IAN. The Social Construction of What? Harvard University Press, 1999.)

The title of this exhibition, "archetype," and the atoms used as motifs are not about their original universal roles.
In the process of painting composition, he seems to affirm the dynamic and perverse nature of the "archetype" by starting from the inversion of power relations in the painting.

Give the public free access to the memory and data banks (Lyotard, Jean-Francois. The Postmodern Condition. Manchester University Press, 1984.)

The wind is rising! . . . We must try to live!
( Paul Valéry, Le Cimetière marin, 1920.)

The sea has been dividing something, however, simultaneously, it can seem to include everything.
Intermittent flashes of isolation and inclusion floating on the sea allure us.

They say, “He was the most beautiful young man I have ever seen,..” but the detail is not specifically described, but is omitted. Similarly, it has been noted that omissions are made regarding the emotions of the characters in the fairy tale.
