Introduction to the Archives XVI: The Shadow in Marginalia: Shuzo Takiguchiʼs Room
This event has ended.
Shuzo Takiguchi (1903-1979) was a poet and art critic whose activities spanned different fields. He simultaneously worked as an exhibition organizer in the 1950s, primarily for Gallery Takemiya, and established formative experiments in the 1960s. This exhibition attempts to project Takiguchi’s study (room) through various materials. A study is a place of creation where many thoughts and memories flow freely during the creative process. In other words, it is a room where “shadows” reside. By studying the various rearrangements of constellation (his document collections) attempted by Takiguchi using photographs, and focusing on his book “Marginalia” with an exhibition of first edition copies, the exhibition will compare the condition of his study before and after this book crystallized. Treating the photos as images of the “shadows” occupying the room and the crystallized “Marginalia” as one model of the study, this show will look back at the creative process of this book and try to consider events in past arrangements of the study, as well as Takiguchi’s creation itself.
