Michal Martychowiec | Amberley

ポーランド出身の芸術家、Michal Martychowiec/ミハウ・マルティホヴィエツによる "Amberley" シリーズの写真展を開催します。

イングランド南部、ウェストサセックス州のアンバリー村に佇む16世紀に建てられたコテージの壁面を撮影、絵画的に再構築された写真作品で、2010年に発表されました。この作品は、モダニズムの画家達と同じように実験性を取り入れながら、伝統的な枠組みにとらわれない表現を指向しています。そこには氏の作品 ”ネオン・シリーズ” にもある「歴史の意味を探す/ Looking for meaning history」でも行われている、作家自身のテーマの一つもある歴史的物語を結びつける試みでもあります。

Michal Martychowiec/ミハウ・マルティホヴィエツ



The series Amberley was created in Amberley Village, West Sussex, England.

It depicts walls of 16th century cottage Kennards. The particular framing creates images alike that of modernist painters. This clear reference is an early attempt at linking various historical narratives, like one expressed in the neon ‘Looking for meaning in history’.

In a sense, what is presented, is an abstract modernist composition, although it soon becomes clear, it is neither abstract nor modernist, but an image of cultural heritage, which the modernists failed to erase despite many attempts to do so.

Michal Marychowiec

Michal Martychowiec (born in 1987) creates conceptual series of photographs, films, drawings, neons, objects, mixed media installations and environments. He is a visiting lecturer at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou.

Martychowiec’s oeuvre consists of mixed media practice designed in larger series. It is thus always developed hermeneutically around an expanded topic. A new field of his invention is also recreation of avatars and other personas.

Through this practice, characterised by the diversity of the media used, Martychowiec aims to explore the condition and the possibilities of contemporary human existence. His thinking revolves around history, invention and autopoiesis of historical narratives and thus also exploration and occasionally comical recomposition of cultural symbols and archetypes.

Furthermore, Martychowiec merges artistic and curatorial practices through a twofold arrangement of his oeuvre. At first, he develops projects as individual narratives within a certain field of inquiry. At the same time, these projects inform one another and their elements can be reenacted and incorporated, through a curatorial activity, into later works, where they acquire symbolic qualities.

Martychowiec’s inventions are based primarily on Occidental and Oriental philosophy, anthropology, art and cultural history, universal historical reflections, the history of religion, literature, archeology and, of course, our contemporary culture and communication analysis.
