日本最大級の版画工房 エディション・ワークスの企画協力を得て、
ジャンルの異なる2名の作家、東恩納裕一と鷹野隆大の版画作品を展示いたします。
版画には常に素材の持つ実体があり、それは作家自身の身体の痕跡や行為の記録にもなりえます。
デジタル化が進む仮想的な現代において、この実体感は存在の証ともいえるものであり、
それゆえに、作家そして鑑賞者までもが、それを求める気持ちが強くなるのではないかと考えます。
本展は、版画の意味を改めて探る試みです。ぜひ、ご高覧ください。

日時:2013年4月6日(土)17:30-19:00 *事前申し込み制

Press Release(jp)>>


We are pleased to present “Works by Edition Works”, a print exhibition, which is curated and cooperated by Edition Works, from March 22 (Fri) to April 13 (Sat) 2013 at Yumiko Chiba Associates viewing room shinjuku.

Edition Works is one of the best and biggest printmaking workshop in Japan for their techniques and size of production. They deal with etching, lithograph, woodcut print, silk screen and digital print. Their activity includes not only artwork productions of artists, galleries and publishers but also their own original publishing, which keeps developing expression by print art. Edition Works also supports technically prominent artists from various categories such as Lee U-Fan, Ai Yamaguchi, Katsura Funakoshi and Takashi Murakami, and their collaborative approach to drawing out artists’ ideas is highly regarded in and out of Japan.

In this exhibition, the print works by our two artists, Yuichi Higashionna and Ryudai Takano, who are from different categories, will be presented in collaboration with Edition Works. Print art evokes the essence of materials and it can be a record of the performance of the artist. In the virtual modern world which grows toward digitalization, the substance of print art is a sign of presence in itself. Therefore artists and viewers eagerly seek to establish this “substance” via printed artworks. This exhibition will present this very opportunity by viewing print art.

Gallery Talk will be held during the exhibition with Chiaki Kayama from Edition Works, Yuichi Higashionnna and Ryudai Takano.
