    26人のパン人間の処刑 川崎市岡本太郎美術館 2017

    国際的に活躍する川崎生まれのアーティスト・折元立身によるパフォーマンスです。世界中どこにでもあり、誰にでも身近な“パン”は見た人の生活水準、宗教観、文化環境によって、多様な解釈ができるものだといえます。「パン人間」のパフォーマンスは一見ナンセンスに見えますが、見るものに様々な問いを投げかけてくれるでしょう。


    パン人間の処刑

    私の作品は人とのコミュニケーションを主体としている。
    その根底には、人に対しての思いやりが必要と思っている。
    この思いやりは、アート・ママの母からのDNA(遺伝)で、母は非常に暖かい人でした。
    だが、私は人との間に思いやりだけでなく、憎悪や暴力が、一方反面にあるので、思いやりが一層強くなるのだと思う。
    それで、パン人間のパフォーマンスにも、やっていけない処刑の方法を考え、思いやり⇔暴力を考えてみたいと思った。

    It is our pleasure to announce that we will hold the 4th solo exhibition of a star contemporary artist, the pride of Kawasaki City, Tatsumi Orimoto (b. 1946, Kawasaki).

    Orimoto is known for his representative works such as “Bread Man” in which he wrapped loaves of bread around his head and “Art Mama,” a collaborative work with his mother Odai; however, in his exhibition last year at the Kawasaki City Museum “ART x LIFE,” viewers surprisingly encountered various unknown aspects of Tatsumi Orimoto through seeing an overwhelming amount of his artwork such as drawings with freewheeling intimacy, three-dimensional works, print pieces, and documents of diverse performances.

    In the late 1960s, Orimoto stayed and studied in America, on both its western and eastern coast. In the late 70s, after joining in the later Fluxus group, he went back to Japan. While leading a busy life as a manager of a construction company, he continued his artistic creativity at every opportunity. Faced with the bursting of the bubble economy in the early 1990’s, he dissolved his company and instantly switched his activities to creation and exhibition as an artist. Firmly based on his life living with his mother at his family home in Kawasaki, he actively promoted his artistic activity, mainly in Europe.

    The “Carrying” series that will be exhibited in this exhibition is a history of Orimoto’s challenges conducted during his travels throughout Europe. At every occasion, he expressed himself through artwork such as “Carrying a Tire,” “Dragging a Bathtub,” “Dragging Many Cloths that are Tied Together,” “Carrying a Clock on the Head,” “Carrying a Chimney-like Sculpture beside a Real Chimney,” and “Carrying a Coffin-like Box Loaded with French Bread.”

    He employed something inevitably found in each place as the media of his artwork such as goods, living matter, and situations.

    “Carrying a Baby Pig on My Back,” the first solo exhibition at Aoyama Meguro in 2014, was his current expression at the time. And the “Bread Man” can be considered as “Carrying Bread on the Face” by a man dressed in the manner of the Fluxus group.

    If you view his act of “carrying bread on the face” only as the unique character “Bread Man,” our imagination stops there; but in a different viewpoint, his confident but enigmatic expression seems to be suggesting something “necessary to us.”

    We are looking forward to meeting you during the hottest period of summertime.

    Please come and enjoy this rare opportunity.

    Venice Agendas 2017: The Contract is a programme of events including an exhibition, a publication, talks and performances in London, Venice, Margate and Folkestone.

    The theme of this edition, The Contract, is particularly relevant both politically and socially. Contracts, whether written or spoken, are promises and agreements that we make with each other, within our communities and across society in general.

    The project brings together artists and professionals to share and discuss what a contract means to them, their experiences of relationships governed or suggested by contracts and what might be anticipated or expected in the context of contemporary visual arts and current world events, including the UK Brexit decision.

    26 Execution
    ORIMOTO Tatsumi
    Project 1- Busan Museum of Art

     

    Japan’s representative performance artist of today, Orimoto Tatsumi, came across the lingering image of Fluxus, the happenings in New York, and became influenced by them while staying in New York for a long stretch of time, 1971. His work, Execution, will be projected onto a screen which happened in 1579. In this work, the same number of guillotines were used to execute 26 Christian martyrs subject to crucifixion in Nagasaki according to Toyatomi Hideyoshi’s orders in Japan, this device was used around the world Today the baguette, a French bread which has become a part of our life, used to be a political symbol representing the body of Christ in Christian churches. Though it was new to East Asia, after the area of exploration and a bloody history surrounding colonial propaganda and ruthless suppression it has come to have the meaning it does today. He is asking this question once again.
