poster for "Tokyo Art Meeting: Transformation" Exhibition

This event has ended.

People have always been fascinated by images of transformation involving the human body. What does it mean for human beings to transform themselves into “something other than human”? Transformations into animals, imaginary creatures, robots, and cyborgs... Transformations by means of plastic surgery, gene manipulation, and organ transplants... Along with ecology, a return to the primitive, and research into new human characteristics for future survival, this has recently become a hot topic in contemporary art. Produced in collaboration with anthropologist Shinichi Nakazawa, this exhibition will bring a new perspective to contemporary art, with “art expansions” as its keyword. As a cross-disciplinary endeavor, it will traverse fields to present historical artworks, subculture, and archive materials together with contemporary art.

ちとちと、つらいんでは。

作家独自の視点が集結した展覧会。
最後のヤン・ファーブルの部屋は圧巻の迫力だった。
真っ暗な中で歩く部屋もあったり、独特の映像作品があったりなど、観覧者に様々な問題提起を行うような作品ばかりで、少し脳みそが疲れる展覧会ではあるが、充分に刺激になった。
また改めて作家の作風など理解した上で、足を運びたい。

ああ、たしかに「ヤン・ファーブル」展といってもいいほど。他とかけ離れた力量で脱帽。

コンセプトは面白い。でも、作品を理解するのはちと難しかったかなー。
