Ay-O "Over the Rainbow Once More"

Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo

poster for Ay-O "Over the Rainbow Once More"

This event has ended.

Ay-O (1931 - ) is known as ‘the Rainbow Artist’ for the way in which he depicts all his motifs through a spectrum of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. He was a member of the international avant-garde artist group, Fluxus, using everyday actions or objects as his material to produce a form of art that could be experienced physically through smell, touch and the other senses. This exhibition will present a large-scale, participatory installation and a new painting, 30 meters in length, as well as oil paintings, prints, and performance records or re-creations, tracing the course of his career.

Performance by the artist scheduled for late March. See website for details and updates.

みゅーぽんを使って鑑賞。作品数が多く、吹き抜けを使った大きなインスタレーションもあり、見応えがある。ほとんどが虹色の作品だけれど、見飽きなかった。虹色に対しては「幸せ」「幸運」というイメージを持っていたけれど、靉嘔氏の作品を見ているうちに、サーモグラフィーのように、あくまでも科学的現象を表しているんだなという感想を持った。
色が温度を持っていて、それが静止した絵に躍動感を与えているというのも、発見だった。「人生色々あるよね」という場合の「色々」が、本当に赤橙黄緑青藍紫をベースにした無限の色の組み合わせや、グラデーションなんだなーと思う。
