"Collage and Photomontage" Exhibition

Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography

poster for "Collage and Photomontage" Exhibition

This event has ended.

Everybody has had the experience of cutting out their favourite photographs and sticking them onto a piece of paper. Since the 17th century, people have been sticking feathers and animal skins onto other things in order to make works of collage, but since the invention of photography, it is photographs that have been used in most collage works. Photographic collage makes it possible to express things that are difficult to portray, and to create unusual, improbable new messages that transcend reality, and this technique is now being used in fields other than photography. This exhibition shows the various ways in which collage has been used and aims to capture the wonder of its expression.

コラージュってこれまでスキではありませんでしたが、この展覧会を見てココロを入れ替えました。
コラージュやモンタージュって写真の歴史とほぼ同時に始まっていたんです。

いわゆる明治期のアイコラもあり、コラージュという世界の広さ、いわゆる寛容性を面白く感じる。
最初に違和感のないコラージュとして有名な、ギュスターヴ・ル・グレイの『遠景』が迎えてくれた。
個人的にはマン・レイの『アングルのバイオリン』を見れて良かった。
モデルのモンパルナスのキキのあの体躯の美しさがたまらない。
その体躯をバイオリンに見立てるマン・レイのセンスも感心する。
また、コーネルの箱『カシオペア#1』も出品されており、氏のファンとしては嬉しい驚きだった。

For anyone who did not get to see the wonderful 4-part ‘How has Photography Changed Our Way of Looking at Things ?’ last year, and especially ‘Part 2 - Creation’ ( http://www.tokyoartbeat.com/event/2005/94AE ) this is a chance to discover the amazing works of Kiyoshi Koishi, Honjou Kourou, Ootsuka Gen, Kikuji Kawada and a lot more Dada/Surrealist artists and photographers. Given the richness of syabi's collection for this period, this is a show not to be missed.
