"KAAT EXHIBITION 2017" The forest of poetic space

"KAAT EXHIBITION 2017" The forest of poetic space

What kind of exhibition is KAAT EXHIBITON 2017?

Six emerging artists who produce Japanese paintings and sculptures exhibit their works using the studio of KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater, which originally uses space for performance and performing arts. Art museums are surrounded by white walls, so it is difficult to hang things from the ceiling or nail a floor or wall, but it is possible in the middle studio, which is also the rehearsal hall of the theater. This exhibition is trying an experimental approach while adding light using lighting in a space called this black "black box". There are Japanese paintings drawn with washi, ink, rock paint, etc., but there are also huge works that hang from the ceiling, and others that are self-supporting and stand-alone. The sculptural works created from stone, glass and metal work in harmony with each other in a rhythmic manner, so that people who come to see them enter the works in the "forest" of emotional full-blown contemporary art. I would like you to take a walk as if drifting in the middle.

--- Specifically, what kind of artist do you have?

Mr. Natsunosuke Mise (Japanese-style painting) is a professor at Tohoku Art Institute of Technology in Yamagata Prefecture. He is an artist who creates large-scale paintings by combining Japanese paper painted with ink, pigments, and metal foil. Named himself as a "painter", a consistent production style that produces works by accumulating precise drawingsWorks that have transformed the traditional style of Japanese art, such as folding screens and hanging scrolls, while taking the film, can be said to be beyond the framework of "Japanese painting" and not captured by existing concepts.

Mise Natsunosuke

Akira Nagasawa (Japanese-style painting) is a professor of Tohoku Art Institute of Technology in Yamagata Prefecture as well as Mr. Mise, and he is also in the field of Japanese-style painting, and it is a large wall like a wall that stands on the theme of "contemporary Japanese painting" I mainly produce works. At present, we are focusing on tigers as a motif, but the body abstracted to the limit is reflected in our eyes like a mythical being. Mr. Nagasawa is not limited to paintings, and works on activities such as installation and three-dimensional works that are not confined to the form of works. It can be said that it is "contemporary Japanese painting" beyond the existence of "Japanese painting".

Akira Nagasawa

Mr. Tomiyuki Kaneko (Japanese-style painting) is based in a limited village in Yamagata Prefecture, after completing a doctoral course at Tohoku Art Institute of Technology, where Mise and Nagasawa teach. Based on Japanese painting techniques using materials such as rock paint, ink, metal foil, etc., they create paintings based on traditional and legendary existence as motifs, and they are characterized by scribing to the entire screen. Due to the nature of the subject matter to be treated, various opinions may be heard depending on the viewer, probably because the stimulus is too strong. However, the detailed depiction to relentlessness is a kind ofIt looks like it has the universality of

Nozomi Tanaka (Nisshi-gura) is the youngest artist among the exhibiting artists of this year, a rising artist who won the grand prize of the VOCA award while attending Tohoku Art Institute of Technology in 2014. The unique world-view created while covering and studying the culture, progress, tradition, etc. transmitted in various places may be said to be a Japanese painting because it has explored the Japanese culture beyond the materials handled. The pictures drawn on the screen are reminiscent of birds and beasts, but by drawing from a point of view that looks up from above, not in the form of a picture scroll, the story is created and linked in various scenes without losing the center of the work Is expressed.

We have won numerous awards in contemporary art such as TOKYO MIDTOWN AWARD and Taro Okamoto Contemporary Art Grand Prix, and currently they are not limited to exhibitions such as the Setouchi International Art Festival and Ichihara Art Mix. I am an artist who has exhibited at art festivals. Ms. Kaku has created and presented works that bring in new meaning while shifting the meaning and function of each material by skillfully combining wood, iron, paper and things around us. The subtle gap, for example, presents a disturbing relationship between the city and nature in the presentIt highlights the "incongruity" that lurks in the everyday life we mentioned.

Todo-san (sculpture) had been based in Germany until now, but has recently moved to Japan. A lot of works can be seen in the country and attracts attention. The works are mainly developed by sandwiching the laminated glass in the stone, not only the stone but also some kind of narrative such as books, rubble, excavated bricks, and things with time confinement are used, and the accumulated matter is contained It is a work that superimposes time and accumulated substances that are transmitted.

Lastly, please tell us about Open Theater 2017

On the last day of the show, in addition to the six artists of this year, the works of four contemporary artists who make sculptures, pictures, photographs, and lacquer works appear in all places of the theater, and the whole KAAT will be a museum day . We also hold various events such as gallery talks by artists, workshops, video installation and dance, poetry reading, homei and theremin.

From Magcal editorial department As soon as I opened the heavy door, I jumped in front of my eyes a huge piece of Japanese painter Mino Natsunosuke. The light of the illumination hit the work precisely drawn like moonlight, and I breathed my breath. As I moved forward, I was fascinated by the works on display in all directions, and time passed in no time. The exhibition method was interesting as well as the works themselves, as the exhibition method was different from a general art museum. On the final day of the exhibition, on the 28th, there will be plenty of free fun events, so you can feel free to experience contemporary art.
