2011年より大島が精力的に制作しているシリーズ“haptic green”は、被写体への焦点距離を変化させて撮影した数百枚のカットをコンピューター上で格子状に繋ぎ合わせ、一枚の写真として再構成することで奇妙な風景を作り上げました。「木の部分」を視る近い距離と、「全体の木」を視る遠い距離、遠近二つの距離感を混在させ、その両者の振幅のなかで「木」が曖昧に現れることにより、私たちの空間認識は揺さぶられ、未知の視覚体験がもたらされます。このように、視ることを通して、固定化された意味が反復される日常世界から私たちを解放し、外の世界との新しい関係を構築することは、大島作品に通底する重要なコンセプトの一つです。
本展では、“haptic green”シリーズの新作として、後年セザンヌが制作現場とした南仏のエクサプロバンスに赴き撮影をした作品を展示致します。セザンヌが描いた石切場の作品と同じ構図で撮影をしたオマージュとなる作品をはじめ、独自にセザンヌを解釈し、その思考を「写真」を通じて継承できないかと検証したプロジェクトの成果を、是非ともご高覧ください。

Press Release(En)>>

Yumiko Chiba Associates viewing room shinjuku is pleased to present Tableau/Bibémus: with Cezanne a solo show of Naruki Oshima from Friday, January 19, 2018.
 In haptic green series that Naruki Oshima has been working on energetically since 2011, the artist has created singular landscapes by joining several hundreds of photographic shots of a subject that were taken with different focal length into a grid on computer screen so as to recompose them as a single photograph. Within these works, Oshima mixed the two kinds of different distances. They are a short and a long one respectively from the eyes to the details of a tree and to the whole image of it. Amidst our visional swing between the short and long distances, the image of the tree ambiguously appears and questions the way of our usual spatial cognition, thereby generating an unknown visual experience. Hence, through the act of seeing, Oshima’s works liberate us from the daily routine that keeps on repeating the fixed meanings to lead us to construct a new relationship with the surrounding world. This is an important element running through all of Oshima’s works.
 Oshima says that he always had the art of Paul Cezanne in his mind while he was working on the series. Paintings by Cezanne, which employed multiple perspectives to recapture objects with the fresh eyes, have had a large influence on Oshima.
This exhibition will present new works of the haptic green series that Oshima photographed in Aix-en-Provence in Southern France, the place where Cezanne produced his tableaux in his late years. The exhibits that include the work which paid homage to Cezanne by following the composition of his painting of the quarry are fruitful outcome of Oshima’s project that interpreted the art of Cezanne in an original way and examined whether he can succeed the master’s idea using the medium of photography.
 In conjunction to the opening of the exhibition, the gallery is inviting a photographer Mr. Risaku Suzuki, who has
also created photographic works on the subjects of St. Victoire Mountain and the Studio of Cezanne, for a talk
with Oshima.
