シムラユウスケは、幼少期に出会った人類初の宇宙飛行士ガガーリンの「地球は青かった」という言葉に影響を受け、世界をマルチアングルに捉えた作品を発表しているアーティストです。その表現は、写真作品、ドローイング、インタラクティブアートと、多面的に人の持つ夢の可能性を描く世界を創りだし、「人の夢とは何か」を照らし続けています。

本展では、新作の写真作品「Sightseeing」シリーズを展示いたします。
彼の作品の特徴でもある、世界をパースペクティブに捉える直線(ライン)で切り出したドイツでの新作もご紹介いたします。ぜひ、ご高覧ください。

Yusuke Shimura “Sightseeing”

February 22 (Fri) – March 16 (Sat), 2013 
Venue: Yumiko Chiba Associates viewing room shinjuku
Opening Reception: February 22 (Fri), 2013 18:00-20:00

When Yusuke Shimura was very young, he was influenced with the famous phrase, “the Earth was blue.”, by Yuri Gagarin, the first space astronaut. He was very interested in how the earth would look to people when they are outside in the space. This experience prompted the artist’s ambition to see the earth from the multiple angles and he has been producing his works based on this idea.

Shimura’s photo works, “Magictime”, “WITCH”, and “Human Museum” catch the world at a certain distance. His drawing work approaches cutting-edge dreams and hopes in the world by using conceptual characters, “Fuwari”. He also created interactive works, “DREAMING DREAMING” and “OPEN DREAM”. He creates, in those works, the world which describes the possibility of dreams one can have multilaterally and begs the question “what is a dream of human beings?”.

In this coming exhibition, Shimura’s updated photoworks, the “Sightseeing” series, will be presented.
In this series, realistic elements such as buildings in front of you, time, people are dissected into segments and another world is instantly created. This work reflects Shimura’s nature. Viewers will turn into sightseers who travel around the earth using the viewpoints shown in his works. Sightseers who are shooting commemorative photos at the Times Square, the scene of baseball games on the monitor, and people who start walking at the crossing at the same time. Shimura focuses on all of those objects and presents various places to generate different stories. The effect is to leads us to stand in front of his works as a form of space travel.

Shimura’s works tell us in that our world generates surprises and stories at all times. He shows the idea by switching viewpoints from one direction to multiple angles. In this exhibition, his new creations from Germany will be also presented, in which the world is regarded from a perspective point with many radiating lines.
