大田秀则画廊很高兴为您呈现艺术家泽拓和创意团体SHINCHIKA的双人展。
SHINCHIKA是2002年由京都市立艺术大学的学生久门刚史、藤野洋右、藤木伦史郎、吉川辰平、胜村富贵组成的创意团体,团体名的灵感来源于大阪脏乱贫民区中的大阪新世界国际地下剧场。通过原创图形、独特的视觉组成、歌词和声音的结合,团体呈现了揭示SHINCHIKA离奇梦幻世界的迷你剧。团体的每件作品都是对每位成员回忆、日常活动和生活环境的反映,并常常充满了独特的幽默、怀旧感和对不远将来的憧憬。

"JSCO"以一件土地模型开场,模型地块中包含有混凝土高楼的城市景观和一个单独的有着许多绿植和低层建筑的郊区地景。随着城市灯光的点亮,我们回到了冬日某一天的日本城郊,一位女孩正在努力组装最近刚从乡村搬到城市的男友送的模型玩具。几个场景过后,她的神思游离到了出行的火车上。随着情节的消失,交通障碍物、卡车、植物、鸟类、水果、温室、水箱和无数日常用品涌出,指向了盛行消费社会的颓废和痴迷。当火车抵达城市后,她被有序摆放且数量庞大的展品吸引住了,上世纪八九十年代流行的动漫人物布满展台。她所有关于城市、时间和欲望的梦想都在一首由SHINCHIKA成员创作的短篇抒情说唱中达到了顶峰。这些曾经装满她希望、欲望和联想的流行玩具开始分崩离析,被城市景观和物件所取代。当她从一个郊区购物中心JSCO(日本最大的超级市场JUSCO的衍生)被喷射到空中时,她开始接受她对日本城市和郊区间差距的幻想。在影像的最后,她看到了一系列来自城市和乡村的混合物体,现在它们的意义和联想都被扬弃了。

泽拓展示了他最新的影像作品"/ home"。他从2017年开始创作"/ home"。这段影像是在他儿时的家中拍摄的,即使在他获得国际性艺术生涯时,这座房子仍然是他的落脚点。这件作品是在泽拓的父母准备搬离时拍摄的,捕捉到了家庭生活变迁的痕迹。墙纸上的污渍、飘逸的窗帘和家具留下的痕迹都是过去生活的残存,也是泽拓一家曾经拥有和使用这块私人空间的证据。至今,微型飞机仍是泽拓作品中一贯的元素,当它位于泽拓还是小男孩时的空间中,成为了一个分解时间和地点概念的强有力工具。

"我一直以为自己总是有可以回去的地方,"泽拓如是说。当他开始处理这些遗失时,他疑惑自己是否是出生和成长在虚幻的新城中的现代一代。以卫星城为依托建设的现代新城正在逐步被淘汰。泽拓想知道家的概念是否已改变;家曾经是社会希望的象征,是每个人的梦想,这样的时代可能已经结束。

创造力可以意味着很多东西,但它也是以一种合理的方式对崭新及不熟悉的环境做出反应的能力。SHINCHIKA的作品在一定程度上是对21世纪初一代和时代的回应。他们的合作方式源于数字媒体及其带来的并存性。另一方面,泽拓多年来一直默默地创造并保持着他的创作动力,发展出一种作为他理解自己个人遭遇途径的独特美学。
Ota Fine Arts is delighted to present a duo exhibition of artist Hiraki Sawa and creative group SHINCHIKA.

SHINCHIKA is a collective founded in 2002 by Tsuyoshi Hisakado, Yosuke Fujino, Rinshiro Fujiki, Shimpei Yoshikawa and Toki Katsumura from the Kyoto City University of Arts. Their name was inspired by the "Shinsekai Kokusai Chika Gekijo" theatre from Osaka's squalid ghetto. Through the combination of original graphics, unique visual compositions, lyrics and sound, the group presents mini episodes that reveal the eclectic and bizarre fantasy world of SHINCHIKA. Each work is a reflection of each member's recollections, daily activities and living environment, and is often infused with a unique sense of humor, nostalgia and of what may hold in the near future.

"JSCO" begins with a model plot of earth that contains an urban cityscape with tall concrete buildings and a separate plot of suburban land with much greenery and low-lying buildings. As the city lights up, we are transported back in time to a certain winter day in suburban Japan, a girl is struggling to assemble model toys given to her by her boyfriend, who has recently moved from the country to the city. A few scenes later, her mind wanders off on a journey by train. As the plot disappears, traffic barriers, trucks, plants, birds, fruits, greenhouses, water tanks and a myriad of everyday objects gush forward, pointing to the decadence and obsessions of a prevailing consumer society. As the train arrives in the city, she is fascinated by a gigantic display of objects arranged in an orderly manner. Popular animation characters from the 80s and 90s occupy the display. All of her dreams about the city, time and desires culminate in a short lyrical rap composed by the members of SHINCHIKA. These popular toys that were once filled with her hopes, desires and associations begin to break apart, and are now replaced by cityscapes and objects. As she is ejected into the air from a suburbia shopping mall JSCO -- a derivative of the largest Japanese hypermarket, JUSCO -- she comes to terms with her illusions about the gap between urban cities and suburban Japan. At the end of the video, she is presented with an array of mixed objects from both city and country, their meanings and associations now discarded.

Hiraki Sawa presents his latest video work "/ home". Sawa began working on "/ home" in 2017. The video was filmed in his childhood home, a house which continued to be a grounding place even as he pursued an international career. The work was filmed as Sawa's parents prepared to move, and captures traces of a familial existence in flux. The stains on the wallpaper, flowy curtains and marks left behind by the furniture are remnants of life in the past, and evidences of a private space once possessed and utilized by Sawa's family. The miniature airplane remains a consistent motif in Sawa's work to date and when situated in these spaces that he navigated as a young boy, it becomes a powerful tool for unpicking ideas of time and place.

"I thought I would always have a place to go back to," said Sawa. As he began to process this loss, he wondered if he was born and raised as part of a modern generation that grew up in illusory new towns. Modern new towns that were once built to spur on the development of satellite towns are now being phased out. Sawa wonders if the notion of home has changed; where a home was once a symbol of hope for society and embodied the dreams of every individual, such an era may have ended.

Creativity can mean many things, but it is also the ability to respond to new and unfamiliar circumstances in a way that makes sense. SHINCHIKA's works were in part a response to the generation and times in the 2000s. Their method of collaboration was derived from digital media and the coincidences that came with it. On the other hand, Hiraki Sawa has silently created and kept his creative motor going all these years, developing a unique aesthetic that also functions as his own outlet for understanding his personal encounters.
