shun kawakami:
snow landscapes

Shun Kawakami's Snow landscapes exhibition at Backwoods gallery features a series of digital works on paper through which this talented and versatile Japanese artist and designer masterfully plays with light and shadows.
______________________________________________

For his latest show coming up at Backwoods Gallery, entitled Snow Landscapes, Japanese artist Shun Kawakami will present a series of digital works presented on a variety of supporting materials, such as hand-crafted gold and silver leaf, custom-made wood paper and Washi - the traditional Japanese paper. What's printed on those papers is the artist's recognisable pieces which play with light and shadows masterfully. Inspired by the longstanding Japanese love for empty spaces (Yohaku) and intervals (Ma), Shun Kawakami creates images that are juxtaposed by subjects and their surroundings, complex and condensed in their own right.

The sharp borders of subjects in Shun Kawakami's images appear as works of calligraphy, clearly outstanding from their bright backgrounds, alluding to the existence and, at the same time, non-existence of everything within the boundaries of the artworks. Focusing on the "filled-out" spaces as much as on the "shallow" ones, Shun Kawakami looks to express his visions through his concepts, but also his mediums. He finds the different kinds of paper he uses in his work to be of crucial importance in carrying the message, as his subjects interact with each of them in a very unique way. In a balanced state between light and darkness, the artist places own imagination and reality, making them happen in a single moment.

The works of Shun Kawakami wonder somewhere between the abstraction and tension placed in the splatters of liquids across his digital canvases, and the realism and peacefulness of his forms, which suggest perfectly possible scenarios. Although these are individual works, sometimes it would seem as if they're only building a bigger picture that the viewers are left to imagine, triggered by settling visual hints.

That the art and design practices of Shun Kawakami are inextricably linked shouldn't surprise those familiar with his work, for he is, more than anything, a visual communicator whom cares not to be defined by the one marker. Born in Fukagawa, Tokyo in 1977, Kawakami's creative output spans art, design, video, music, installation and spatial interventions. His aesthetic language leans as heavily on negative space as it does the depiction of a particular subject. Through his masterful equilibrium of light and shade, the existent and non-existent appear to intertwine, neither fighting for nor hiding from distinction from the other, rather melding as a proclamation of artist's poised state.

And it is in this balanced state that we find the translucency, the grain, the texture and the reflectivity of the ground material so crucial in forming the image as an object in itself.One immediately senses energies at play here, both real and imagined. The physicality of mark-making in the inclusion of calligraphic strokes and splatters of a liquid, albeit digital, hint at movements driven from Kawakami's subconscious, at pace and perhaps even before our eyes, as if we are witnessing a transient moment.

These dream-like, organic subjects could be stills from a video - a fragment of a greater landscape that we are familiar with, but cannot place. In this way, there is a fleeting sense that Kawakami is provoking us through these singular marks of permanence by suggesting they are but one part of something much grander. In doing so he is manufacturing suspense in the drama of his much broader artistic practice.Yet, in complete contrast, these are settling works. They speak to us quietly, without urgency, instead inviting and encouraging the luxury that time spent will afford us when viewing them.

代官山蔦屋書(店内ギャラリースペース)にて、川上シュンのグラフィック作品展が行われます。水墨画、作庭、建築など日本独自の洗練された美的理念に回帰しながらも、現代のグラフィックデザインアプローチとの融合により生まれる美しさを追求し、伝統的手法により創られた特殊紙と、特殊印刷、そして、余白や間といった空間に、空気や風、温度や湿度、時の揺らぎを想像させる作品です。地は金沢の金箔の老舗「箔一」の職人の手により特殊制作された金箔および銀箔の紙や、松、桐、間伐材を原料とする樹紙、あるいは伝統的手法で漉かれた和紙などです。この特殊な紙の地を使用することで人為的でない掠れや経年劣化を美の要素としてとりいれ、「印刷作品でありながらも、無二なる唯一の表現」の追求をしています。今回の展示では、オリジナルアートとともに、パリ・ルーブル宮/フランス国立装飾美術館でのエキシビション用に制作されたアートブック及びポスターも展示販売されます。そして、川上シュンが代表を務めるデザインエージェンシー「artless Inc.」のブランディングやデザイン作品をまとめたポートフォリオも展示、無料配布されます。是非、お立ち寄りください。

Shun Kawakami
Born 1977 in Tokyo. Establishes his own design firm, artless Inc., in 1999. His vision, unconstrained by genres and categories, is embodied through a broad range of activities, from graphic design, art direction, and branding to interactive art, video, installation, and space design.

経済の変化とインターネットの浸透により大きく社会構造が変わり、混沌とした時代を迎えた2000年以降、あらゆる価値観も大きく変わる環境にさらされている。

アート、デザインというクリエイティヴの分野は経済と密接な関係をもたざるをえない要素から、現在の先進国の行き詰まり、新興国の急激な成長、後進国と呼ばれた国々の成長により、意識レベルの標準化に限りなく近づく方向に時代は動いている。そこでは、従来の型にはまったクリエイティヴの定義ではなく、新しいアート、デザインなどのクリエイティヴの定義が求められてくる時代である。すでに多くのクリエイティヴの分野で、個々の活動が分野にあてはまらずに自己の存在を危惧する多くの作家と出会ってきた。

彼らの求めるものが、従来のカテゴリー分野とは微妙に異なってきているのが主な理由だが、その回答は現れず、異端児という言葉で片付けられてきた。こうした社会状況を背景に新しい時代の新しい定義を求めるために+81 Gallery+Labの実験がはじまった。

2010年に活動を始めた+81 Gallery+Labでは、従来のアートやデザインというカテゴライズされた分野にとらわれることなく、+81の視点から世界を俯瞰して選択された作家群であり、世界の新しい価値観を築ける能力を基準として展示している。従来のアート型のヒエラルキーとは対照的な、世界の求める潜在ニーズの発見と定義づけを命題として運営されている。Andy Warholに象徴されるポップ・アートという分野が、裾野の広さ、幅、奥行きを拡大して、一部のコレクターと専門家であるアートというフィールドを一般大衆にまで知らしめたように、インターネットの普及した21世紀に新しい時代のポップ・アートが生み出されるものだと信じている。

私たちは、新しい形の一般大衆に受け入れられ、後にも評価を維持できると推測される作家群をヴィジュアリストと称して世界に紹介していくために発足した。
