このたびKANA KAWANISHI ART OFFICEは、鈴木崇写真集「kontrapunkt」(TRADEMARK PUBLISHING 刊/ドイツ)の出版にあわせ、出版記念展覧会を開催いたします。

 

今回の写真集のタイトル「kontrapunkt」は、音楽や映画の分野に用いられる「対位法」を意味し、本写真 集及び展覧会はその言葉通り、別の目的で撮影された2つの異なるイメージが絡み合いながら展開されて います。一つのイメージは、日用品であるカラフルなスポンジを構築的に配することで、人々の見る行為 に対する問いかけを提起する作品《BAU》であり、もう一つのイメージは、鈴木がこれまで撮りためてき た写真の中から、作品《BAU》で試みたスポンジのアッサンブラージュによるフォルムの探求と共鳴する かのようなスナップショットを引用したものです。

 

鈴木が自身の作品《BAU》と、撮りためてきた写真を並置することで、新たな見え方や別の解釈を開示す るという実験的表現を試みる展覧会になります。この機会に是非ご高覧ください。

Takashi SUZUKI was born in 1971 in Kyoto, Japan. He graduated from the Photography Department of The Art Institute of Boston. He was a guest student in the photography class of Thomas Ruff at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, and also worked as the assistant for Thomas Struth during his years in
Germany. Rather than 'what' the actual photographic subject is, his interest always have been towards 'how' the photographic subject are perceived. Suzuki’s core motivation towards creation is to explore new definitions of seeing photography.

 

In his latest BAU series, he uses a very common daily consumable item for its vehicle, a washing sponge. Using this daily ready-made consumable product, his artwork suggests various compositions which stimulate peoples’ minds uniquely. Whilst one sees a boat in a certain shape, another would suggest it resembles a temple, which both were beyond the artist’s imagination.

 

I believe daily objects are symbols and reflections of capitalism, materialism, economical and political activity - as well as a concrete form of our lives' and society's desire. It promotes a differentiation of context, instilling potentially unexpected propositions. — Takashi SUZUKI
