poster for "Environment Exhibition -Zekkei-"

This event has ended.

Since 2007, Shinji Omaki has tackled Garbage Project based on the question "what is garbage?" Through workshops held in Korea and Guangzhou, China, he came to contemplate upon the boundary between "that which is art" and "that which is not", and "that which is beautiful" and "that which is not", collaboratively producing works with students and exhibiting them in museums.

Following his visits at the waste landfill repository of Tokyo in August 2008 and Omori Shell Mound in February 2009, Omaki held a debrief session at Tokyo Wonder Site. Since April 2009, he has been based in Studio 1 of Tokyo Wonder Site Aoyama, carrying out further research for the project with other artists and hosting talk events in an attempt to delve into issues surrounding garbage from various perspectives. As culmination of his research, this exhibition showcases his new installation works.

ゴミとどう付き合っていくか。「言葉の無い予言」にはその切迫した現実を感じます。

ここは良く行くギャラリーで、いつも面白い展示をしていますが、今回はかなり驚きました。「ゴミとは何か?」をテーマに約1年間ゴミに関するリサーチを重ねてきたアーティストの大巻伸嗣さんが、ゴミを燃やした後に残る人工物「スラグ」を用いた巨大インスタレーションを行っています。明らかに場違いなというか、ここにあってはいけないモノとしての異物感がスゴイです。中2階へのせたスラグの量(恐らく見えない部分はスチロールだと思いますが)も迫力ありますが、水を張った展示もインパクトあります。この異物感は、環境を破壊させている我々人間が与えているインパクトなのではないか。自然に対して我々が及ぼす影響の大きさは、まだまだ無自覚なもので、異物感とは、そんなグロテスクなまでの自分を写しているのかも・・。
