ベルリン生まれ、ベルリン在住のフォトグラファー


彼の写真は、我々にその解釈をゆだねる記号論のシステムに基づき、それぞれの写真は

隠れた歴史を意味します。彼の解釈は、秘密を明らかにする事なく、展示されます。

そして、埋設された記憶(無意識の痛みを伴うが、美しい寓話)のように脈動します。

それぞれの写真は我々にその物語を語ります、しかし、それは我々の物語なのです。

Claire Usiskin/Nadine Zoller


The images of Jonathan Schmidt-Ott seem to be based on a semiotic system
of symbols and signs whose meaning eludes the viewer. In each of his pictures
there is implied a hidden history. This is not because he has a covert agenda
which he has chosen to withhold from the viewer. Rather it is his interpretation
that gives the images their power. They draw the viewer into the spell,
without revealing the secret. They pulsate like buried memories, painful
but beautiful allegories of the unconscious.
Each image tells us a story, but it is our own story.

mAtter curatorial project Michal Martychowiec solo exhibition | Line

Michal Martychowiec solo exhibition | Line

eflyer02.jpg


One morning, during the Aqua Alta (high water) I have found the house where I was stay- ing completely cut off from the passage way by water. The line of the pavement (which was under the water as well) was like a border, with that difference that it didn’t only function as a border which separated one side from the other but also a line to follow (like Ariadne’s thread).

The 5 photographs, positioned in the passage way show this ambiguity of a line, from one side separating, but at the same time continuously leading ones way towards the exit. One could say it is an allegory of life, as we follow the line of time and life we permanently remain on the border of life and death.

ミハウ・マルティホヴィエツはポーランド出身のアーティストで、現在はベルリンとロンドンを拠点に活動している。


1987 年ポーランドの南東の都市ルブリンに生まれる。2009 年から 2011 年までイギリス、セントマーチンズにて学ぶ。2007 年より写真、フィルム、オブジェといった多様なメディアを用いたインスタレーション並びに映像作品で、一つのテーマに沿った作品のシリーズを発表している。 2010 年からはオペラプロダクションの制作にも携わっており、近年のプロジェクトにポズナンオペラハウス (ポーランド)(映像インスタレーション)やソウルのオペラハウス(映像と写真)などがある。 現在は、サイトスペシフィック・ インスタレーションである”Garden”及びミクストメディアプロジェクトの”Vanito Vanitas”2つの長期プロジェクトを進めながら、 精力的に様々な国でエキシビジョンを発表しています。


彼の手法は哲学的アイディアを用いたり、様々な角度からリサーチし、それらを作品として表現するものである。 歴史的な現象を近 代的なコンテクストにし、既存の形式や価値観に疑問を投げかける表現方法である。下記で確認できる作品”The Magic Mountain” ウ?ェネチアのPalazzo Donáで行われたAwake and Dreamというグループ展で発表されている。彼のドキュメンタリー作品はArt and Documentation FestivalMie?dzynarodowy Festiwal Fotografii FotoFestiwal(Lodzで行われる写真フェスティバル)2つを含めた 3回のエキシビションで発表されている。最近のプロジェクトとしては、マルティホウ?ィエツが歴史と芸術の個性的な対話を取り上 げた注目すべき問題あるエキシビジョンの文章シリーズもそのひとつであり、またウ?ァリエーションをもった作品は鑑賞者との対話 の始まりを感じさせるであろう。また彼は日本文化への探求、そして敬意をもって日本の伝統や様式を作品に取り入れており、その 探究心は彼のライフワークの一つでもある。

同時に、マルティホウ?ィエツはニッチ・ファッション誌やヨーロパ版VOGUEGlamourVanity Fairといったいくつかの広告出版業 ともフォトグラッフィックファッションシリーズの企画・制作・演出を通して、自身の個性と極東文化への関心を反映させたコラボレーションを図っている。


Michal is a visual artist, who lives and works in Berlin, Germany and London, United Kingdom.

Born in 1987 in Lublin, Poland. He studied visual arts at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (2009?2011).

From 2007 Martychowiec has been creating number of topical photographic series, as well as video projections and extensive installations using diverse media: photography, film, drawing, objects.

From 2010, he has been working on various opera productions, creating installations, which are specific reinterpretations of time and space, and incorporate different media. Recent projects include ones for Poznan Opera House (Poland) (multi-channel video installation) and Opera House in Seoul (South Korea)(video and still projections).

Currently he is working at 2 long term projects - site specific installation Garden and a mixed-media project - Vanito Vanitas.

Artist’s practice is a means by which to explore, by alternative means, philosophical ideas that complement his research. He applies notions of Eastern philosophy with a direct reference to the European aesthetics. He is concerned with historic phenomena brought into contemporary contexts, through individual and interdisciplinary creation of which he questions and reinterprets existing forms and ideas. His work is characterised by minimalistic aesthetics resulting, inter alia, in physical and mental reduction of forms. This aesthetics has its source in the Far East ? aesthetics of emptiness.

A series Destination: The Magic Mountain was first to clearly indicate his direction,[2] it became part of an exhibition Awake and Dream at Palazzo Doná in Venice, headquarters of Signum Foundation. Following the exhibition a project commissioned by the foundation - Awake and Dream. Documentation was created and followed by 3 exhibitions, 2 of them accompanied Art and Documentation Festival and Międzynarodowy Festiwal Fotografii FotoFestiwal (International festival of photography in Lodz) while the other was shown in the place of the project's creation: Palazzo Doná.

The latter project is one from the series of documentations of considerable problematic exhibitions, where Martychowiec raises an individual dialogue with history and art.

At the same time, Martychowiec is collaborating with number of niche fashion magazines and other commercial publications including European Vogues, Glamour and Vanity Fair creating, directing and projecting photographic fashion series, being reflection of his personality and interests in the culture of the Far East.

mAtter a curatorial project Harley Cortez solo exhibition "Poemas"

mAtter a curatorial project Harley Cortez solo exhibition "Poemas" at WISH LESS gallery, Tokyo.

ハーレー・コーテッズ 個展「Poemas」

2016年4月2日(土) 〜 24日(日)

水木金 16:00〜21:00/土日 12:00〜19:00/月火 休み(最終日18時終了)

会場:WISH LESS gallery  (東京都北区田端5-12-10)

??オープニングレセプション:4月2日(土)  18:00〜20:00


WISH LESS galleryでは、アメリカ出身のアーティスト兼ミュージシャンのハーレー・コーテッズの日本初個展を開催いたします。


ハーレー・コーテッズは、ここ12年の間、ミクストメディアおよび映像等を含むマルチメディア作品を積極的に創造し、過去3年間に置いては、多くの作品をグループ展にて発表してきました。

カフカ、ペソア、ヴォネガットなどの文学、さらに小津映画やキェシロフスキらに影響を受け、作品のスタイルはファインアートとストリートアートを往来します。

ハーレーの作品は、しばしばシルクスクリーンの様に見られますが、実際は異なり、ペインティングや写真のコラージュで構成されています。彼はペインティングとは一体何なのか?という疑問を探る壮大な挑戦を自らに課せ、それを追究しています。さらに音楽家と映像作家としても様々な媒体を駆使しながら、この世に生きる事全てにおいての意味を見いだそうと励んでいます。


過去には大型のペインティングをはじめ、小さなドローイング、映画(デジタル/フィルム)制作も行ってきました。作品は主にショートフィルム、フィーチャー映画、さらに映画のポスターやアルバムカバーなどにも起用されています。これまでにニューヨークおよびロサンゼルスにて発表をしてきましたが、本展が日本初の個展開催となります。


世界中を旅して周る事が、自身の制作へ大きく影響を与えると本人は語ります。

近い将来には、メンズウェアBespokenの創設者/デザイナーであるSammy Fayedと共に「ハーフブラッド」という愛称でLPをリリースします。さらには、実験映画の脚本、ショートフィルムなどのサウンドトラック制作にも携わる予定です。


本展は、大胆に配置された写真のコラージュや思いのまま走らせた筆使いなどが印象的なハーレー・コーテッズの日本初の個展です。この機会でしか見られない大変貴重な展示を、ぜひこの機会にご高覧ください。


Harley Cortez has been creating mixed media and multimedia art actively for 12 years, with numerous group shows in the last 3 years. Influenced by literature (Kafka, Pessoa, Vonnegut) cinema (Ozu, Kieślowski), the work is a juxtaposition of fine art and street art. His expressive works often look like manipulated screen prints and photographs, that raise questions, challenging what a painting actually is or can be. As well as being a musician and filmmaker, he uses all mediums as an art platform to express an ever-changing philosophical questioning on what it means to be alive.


Previous work has included large scale paintings, smaller drawings, and film (digital and celluloid).

His works has been used in short films, feature films, movie posters, as well as album covers. Having shown work in both New York City and Los Angeles (he resides in both cities). He will have his first solo exhibition at WISH LESS gallery in Tabata, Tokyo, Japan in April 2016.

His travels around the globe have continuing influence on his work. 

His upcoming projects include a full length LP under the moniker Halfbluud. Other works include directing both narrative and experimental films as well as scoring feature and short films. as well as scoring feature and short films.

バンクシーの師匠!? 伝説的グラフィティアーティストの作品が福岡に初上陸!
[巡回展] ヴィニー・ナイロン個展「ナイロンアトロニック」


・[巡回展] ヴィニー・ナイロン個展「ナイロンアトロニック」 
・会期:2015年10月7日(水)~ 10月26日(月) 
・時間:7:00~20:00/定休日なし 
・会場:TAGSTÅ GALLERY (福岡県福岡市中央区春吉1-7-11) 
・レセプションパーティ:10 月 7 日(水)18:00~


この度、バンクシーをはじめ多くのアーティストに多大な影響を与えたイギリスの伝説的グラフィティアーティスト、
ヴィニー・ナイロンの巡回展第2弾を、福岡で絶大な支持を受ける “TAGSTÅ GALLERY”にて開催いたします。

ヴィニー・ナイロンは、1985年よりグラフィティアートを描き続けています。

幼少期に体験した平和運動やパンク、スケーター文化の影響を受け、早くからスプレーアートやステンシルに興味を持ち、

街中で実行します。それは、80年代初期にイギリスに台頭したサブウェイアート の流行よりも先駆けて行われました。

ヴィニーの制作における主題は、生涯にわたり続ける収集へのこだわりであり、特に戦後生 産された50~60年代製のバッジ、アニメーション、おもちゃ、広告物などが重要な要素となります。彼の作品は、ピンテージのビニール人形や広告マスコットによって演じられる物語です。 絵の中には、Valvo, Soda pop, Lucky boy, Bright spark, My-T-Toofといった、ヴィニーが創作し たキャラクターが度々登場します。それらは、どこかで見たことのあるお馴染みのキャラクタ ーばかり。ヴィニーは、消費文化の象徴的アイコンを独自の解釈で歪ませ、新たなキャラクターへと昇華させていくことで、大衆化された唯一の存在をヴィニーの物語の主役にしてしまうのです。今年3月に開催された東京のWISH LESS galleryでの展示作品の他、本展のために描き下ろした 新作も発表いたします! 

さらに、新たなプロダクト商品も取り揃え販売いたします。 古き良き時代と新しい感覚がリミックスされた、ポップで懐かしいヴィニー・ナイロンの作品 群にぜひご期待ください。



Vinnie Nylon / ヴィニー・ナイロン

イギリス出身のアーティスト。フリーハンドで描かれるストイックなラインを駆使し、 ポップでノスタルジックな作品を多く発表。8 0年代初頭のイギリスで、グラフィティアートをいち早く始め、後に人気となるバンクシーなど多くのアーティストに影響を与えた。ビンテージグッズ収集家でもあり、50~60年代の古い人形やおもちゃなどをモチーフに起用。また、多岐に渡るブランドや企業とのコラボレーションなどにも積極的に行っている。2015年3月、東京のWISH LESS galleryにて日本初の個展を開催し、注目を浴びた。

Taylor Deupree Photo Exhibition | The Long Winter at FUKUOKA

at TAGSTÅ

Produced : Mariko Kanamura (Otonoha)
Curated : Yukitomo Hamasaki (mAtter)


2013/2014の冬、
降雪量と冷えた温度のために
記録的な積雪がニューヨークを襲いました。

テイラーはこの期間、
創作活動をすることが難しかった為に
スタジオの周りを歩き、
その厳しさの中から春の兆しを探すことに着目しました。

今回展示するこれらの作品は
彼のスタジオの周りで撮影された写真と、
ツアー中に訪れたアイスランドなどで
撮られた作品をメインに展示します。

彼のこれらの作品群から見えて来る、彼の思いとは何か?

それは単に気候的な意味での春を待つ
ということではなく、未来とは?ということを
彼ならではのランドスケープ的な解釈に基づいて
着想する試みです


またテイラー自身が2008年に1日1枚ポライドカメラで彼の”周辺”を1年間に渡り撮影してきたシリーズを同時に展示いたします。
このシリーズでは彼の”記録”と”記憶”の狭間を公開する試みです。

Taylor Deupree Photo Exhibition | The Long Winter


The work of New York musician and photographer Taylor Deupree is often inspired by the winter landscapes surrounding his studio. His work echoes the hushed, monochromatic beauty of the snow and northeastern forests. The winter of 2013/2014 set records in New York for snowfall and cold temperatures. Deupree’s creative output couldn’t help but to be guided the brutal weather, which continued through the start of spring.


The Long Winter is a collection of starkly beautiful photographs Deupree has taken over the past couple of years in New York and around the world on his travels. The images capture the cold and the quiet of winter but at the same time show a fragility and warmth of an artist looking inward, exploring existence through nature’s unrelenting beauty.

ニューヨーク在住のサウンド・アーティスト、グラフィックデザイナー、プォトグラファーとして活動 しています。1997 1 1 日にデジタルミニマリズムに焦点をあてた音楽レーベル 12k を設立。また 2000 年には協力者のリチャード・シャルティエと 12k のサブレーベルとして、コンセプチャルかつウ ルトラミニマルな電子音響、そして音と静寂とリスニング・アートの関係性を研究するレーベル LINE を設立(LINE は現在は独立)。彼の作品全体に共通できるのは、自然現象などから影響を受け、また アンビエンスにフォーカスした作品をデジタルとアナログを駆使しながら、オーガニックに仕上げる事 です。近年では、坂本龍一氏との競演、また氏の CD ジャケットの写真提供などで記憶にある方もいら っしゃるでしょう。これまで何度かツアーで来日し、そのサウンドスケープを披露してきましたが、今 展示では、これまでなかなか日本で見る機会が少なかった、写真家、グラフィックデザイナーとしてのテイラー・デュプリーを紹介したいと思います。

ある者達は、スターダムへ駆け上がり、ある者達は、ひっそりとその活動に幕を閉じる。
GrayというNYで結成されたバンド。彼らは82年辺りにバンドの活動休止後、重要な役割を担うことになる。被写体である、ジャン=ミッシェル・バスキアのドローイングは現代美術の大きなターニング・ポイントの一旦を担った。そしてそのバスキアと歌手であるマドンナを繋げた重要人物であるのが、Nicholas Taylorである。
彼はGrayの活動休止後のDJとして伝説的なアーティストの一人でもあるラメルジーなどと活動を共にするが、音楽的活動に専念する為に、それまでに学んできたカメラを封印す。

MESSAGE from Nicholas Taylor

The artist Jean-Michel Basquiat was a living creative phenomenon who would pass through my life and become a very good friend. I am grateful for the wonderful times we shared together. His intelligence was beyond genius and every moment with Jean was precious. 
He told me an idea. He wanted to be the most respected artist in the world during his lifetime. But the pressure of becoming the most acclaimed artist weighed heavy in his conscious. 
The innocence in his heart conflicted with his growing fame. He would self destruct with intoxicants, which gave him energy to paint and also helped him escape from the cruel world. 
We talked about death and the afterlife, and he told me he would be reincarnated.

- loosen a string
世界中で情報洪水が起き、私たちは日々あらゆるメディアから刺激的な言葉によって翻弄されています。しかしながら現実で起きている物事の背景には人があり、暮らしがあり、風景があります。端的に物事を捉えるのではなく、広い見方をもってそれらを見つめていくことが、今必要とされているのではないか。 

写真はその一つの手段になることができます。

loosen a stringは私がイスラエルで撮影した写真であり、イスラエルという国を見るという試みの一つです。

from Yasuhiro Morikawa

本展示では約30点ほどの作品展示を予定しております。

2013年、ヨーロッパを旅しながら、

リアルな日常を見つめ、社会を切り取ったこのシリーズは

パリをはじめ、EU諸国の様々な人々に感動と共感を与え、

ギャラリストや何人かのコレクターなどの手に渡った。


彼らに共感を与えた写真達は、何を切り取ったのか。


In the Summer and Winter of 2013, photographer Tomo Asano

set out to various EU countries in an attempt to seek out and

capture "Time's" elusive, distant relative...


In doing so, he had manage to capture the attention of Gallerists & Collectors whom he'd met in passage. Notably, his delicate technique of

"A Moment's" occupation for as long as a photograph can possibly hold on.


In taking such photos,

attention was then caught. 

With precious time and attention, you've paid.

And now...

your rebate.

Andy Graydon 18.jpeg
Andy Graydon

Andy Graydon was born and raised in Maui, Hawaii and originally trained as a filmmaker. Both experiences have been influential on his current work, which is focused on the interaction of media and environment in the forming of personal and social subjectivities. Taking the form of projected light and video installations, photographs, sound works, and architectural interventions that are attuned to site and context, Graydon’s work explores the interplay of phenomenal, ecological, and social constructions that make up our composite notion of place.
Much of this work uses cinema and pseudo-cinematic forms (including sound) to address concerns familiar to environmental art, while extending concepts of the environment to encompass the role of mediation in constructing and modulating natural and built environments, as well as "the environment", or the ground of our existence.

Graydon describes many of his projects as “science fiction ecologies,” suggesting that what is most important are the speculative potentials that circulate through an environment ? the what-ifs and the parallel dimensions; real and potential traumas and erasures; reversals of scale and time course; conflations of fictional and factual existence. Graydon’s work tries to engage the future dynamic latent within the present material existence, inviting transformations of both the environment and the perceiving subject.

Giuseppe la Spada

Giuseppe was born in Palermo in 1974. In 2002 he graduated with honors in Digital Design at the European Institute for Design in Rome, where he remained as a professor until 2004.
In 2002 he was invited to “Opera Totale 7” as one of the five best emergent Italian web designers.
In 2006 the European Institute for Design in Rome conferred him the prize for best carrier in Visual Arts.

In 2007 he won the prestigious Webby Awards, thanks to an ecological web project: the website “Mono No Aware” in support of the project “Stop Rokkasho” founded by Oscar winner Ryuichi Sakamoto. That same evening also David Bowie, Beastie Boys and YouTube founders received an award. In 2008 he worked with Sakamoto and Fennesz during the tournèe “Cendre”, which ended with the unforgettable show at Ground Zero in New York.

In 2009, together with the musician Con_cetta, he gave life to “Afleur”, a live show which in 2010 he also declined in a very particular object-book, featuring high artistic and ecological value.
In 2011, with the participation of more than 600 people, he staged an impressive human tree in Piazza Duomo, Milan, in order to raise public awareness on the problem of pollution.

The exclusive use of natural elements (water in the first place) positions him as one of the artists most sensitive to environmental issues. One of his peculiar characteristics is the ability to translate communication needs and raw ideas into 360° creative projects, making skillful use of all the different media available today. He lives and works in Milan.

Jacob Kirkegaard

Jacob Kirkegaard is a Danish artist who focuses on the scientific and aesthetic aspects of resonance, time, sound and hearing. His installations, compositions and performances deal with acoustic spaces and phenomena that usually remain imperceptible. Using unorthodox recording tools, including accelerometers, hydrophones and home-built electromagnetic receivers, Kirkegaard captures and contextualizes hitherto unheard sounds from within a variety of environments : a geyser, a sand dune, a nuclear power plant, an empty room, a TV tower, and even sounds from the human inner ear itself.

Based in Berlin, Kirkegaard is a graduate of the Academy for Media Arts in Cologne, Germany. Over the last fifteen years, Kirkegaard has presented his works at exhibitions and at festivals and conferences throughout the world such as Club Transmediale in Berlin, James Cohan Gallery and Diapason in New York as well as Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles and Museum of Contemorary Art in Denmark. He has released five albums (mostly on the British label Touch). Jacob is also a member of the sound art collective freq_out.

Papalexandri’s work focuses on the reexamination and reinvention of the musical instrument as a sound generator, as well as the type of sound production and behaviour of the performer. Her work involves a continues interaction between the visual to the musical. It is also a work which demands absolute focus, clarity and economy of means.

Performances and exhibitions of Papalexandri’s works include San Francisco Art Institute (2011), de Signel (2011), November Music Festival (2011), Galerie Mario Mazzoli, Berlin (2011); Das Weekend Transmediale / Stattbad, Berlin (2011); Centre d Art Santa Mònica, Barcelona (2010); Kunsthaus L6, Freiburg (2010); Dialogue Festival, Salzburg (2010); impuls Graz, (2009); COMA Gallery (Berlin 2009); Ultrashall Festival, Berlin (2008);

Papalexandri holds a Ph.D from the University of California, San Diego where she studied with Chaya Czernowin and Rand Steiger as well as a Post-graduate Diploma in Composition from the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien. Prior to UCSD, Papalexandri studied with Roger Redgate at Goldsmiths College, University of London, where she obtained a Bachelor of Music and Master’s degree in composition. She has received numerous prizes and awards including the Impuls award, the Dan David Prize, the Stipendienpries der Darmstadter Ferienkurse, the Kurt Weil Fellowship, the Robert Erickson Scholarship and the Berliner Kompositions stipendien 2011.

overtone 2 - 美術の地上戦

18019eda-s.gif

2002年に神奈川県民ホールギャラリーで、アメリカから4人、日本から3人が参加した展覧会「OVER TONE」を開催した。この展覧会の目的は、単に外国の作家と交流するだけでなく、これからの美術はどうあるべきか、どう提示すべきかを問うことにあった。前回の「OVER TONE」 のカタログに美術評論家の西村智弘は、「新しさとはつねに出会いのなかから生まれる。しかも異質なものとの出会いにおいて生まれるのだ。社会とのあいだ に、他者とのあいだに、あるいは自分自身とのあいだに、従来とは異なった関係を構築することが新しさを生みだすのである」と書いている。「OVER TONE」は、展覧会自体が「異質なものとの出会い」の場となり、それぞれの参加者にとって「新しさ」を生みだすきっかけとなったのだった。
 今回、新たに開催される「OVER TONE」 は、前回の理念を引き継ぎつつ、さらなる展開を目指している。参加国はアメリカ、ドイツ、タイ、日本と増えており、音楽やパフォーマンスなどの他ジャンル の表現者が集まっている。また、カタログに美術評論を寄稿した7人の書き手もいわばひとりの作家として展覧会に参加している。日本の作家は海外で作品発表 の機会があると、美術を通して日本と外国の違いを痛切に感じる。外国の作家も日本の文化に出会うことで、異質なものを発見し、お互いに新しい可能性を切り 開くであろう。「OVER TONE」は、美術、音楽、身体表現などがこれからどうあるべきかを模索している者たちによってつくられる総合プロジェクトである。それは、展覧会に関わるひとりひとりと共に生まれ、また共に成長していくものとなるだろう。

-----

Pe Lang realizes performances and creates sound installations by ingeniously assembling magnetic, electrical and mechanical devices and even inventing new devices and prototypes. The resulting works are both visually appealing, because of their elegant and minimal kinetic qualities, but also fascinating for their acoustic features.
If chance plays an important role in his works, the artist playfully manages to balance between order and chaos by controlling the forces involved in his compositions: the precision of the mechanical devices and the confusion resulted from the collision of the various elements.

Pe Lang, born in 1974 in Switzerland, lives and works in Zurich and Berlin. He has exhibited and performed in several important museums, galleries and festivals, including Transmediale, Berlin; AV Festival, Newcastle; Elektra, Montreal; Sonic Acts XII, Amsterdam; Great North Museum, Newcastle; Växjö Kunsthalle, Sweden; Dissonanze, Rome; bitforms gallery, New York; ISEA 2008, Singapore; Netherlands Media Art Institute, Amsterdam; and Cybersonica, London.
