チェックと日本の現代美術界についての感想

Ikeda in London

2010年5月1日


The Icelandic volcano has temporarily interupted the opening of a show of photography by Masanori Ikeda in London. Coupled with the London based painter Kentaro Kobuke, and curated by Sayako Nakahara, a curator and art editor also based in London, Ikeda’s work will be presented in a show entitled “Sunset in the Morning” at the South London gallery Master Piper.

Ikeda will show a number of his distinctive 6 x 7 colour photographs of private “everyday” Japanese domestic life. The show runs until early June. He hopes to be able to travel with his works to London in early May.

Nakahara’s nicely written essay discusses how the two artists, both born in the mid 1970s, are a characteristic part of the “lost generation” of that period. Unlike the shock tactics of the previous generation, she points out how their style of work is light, subtle and tranquil, offering a “neutral” viewpoint frequently shared by the post-Nara and Murakami generation.

Ikeda is well knownin Tokyo for his frequent work for museums and as a documentary portrait photographer of the Japanese contemporary art scene. He provided all the photographs for the Roppongi Hills Crossing 2 catalogue in 2007, for example. He has also been seen working recently in the art unit “Ikeda Midori”, with the artist Midori Mitamura.

I met Ikeda and his friendly gang of photography assistants (photo above of the group, the photo studio “Yukai”) at a small showing of their work in Akasaka in early April. Hiroyuki Matsukage, with whom Ikeda worked, was there too, and the two photographer-sensei were offering an encouraging critique to the younger artists. The evening spilled on into a late night of izakaya drinking and talking with the high spirited group.
