AB projects (Zurich/CH)
27 October - 17 December 2011

For one year from September 10, 2010 to September 10, 2011 I took photos of landscapes that could be seen in the west direction from my place in Basel. The scenes that came into my eyes constantly changed. Each day, I could not remember the exact scene I saw the day before. Even though I retouched the landscape photos with acrylic paint, they are able to be recognized as landscapes without any sense of incongruity.

This brings me to the question, what are we “viewing” in the true sense of the word?

a piece of space APS (Tokyo/JP)
7 - 22 October 2011

By chance I came across some beautiful white bed sheets made of cotton and linen and decorated with embroidery at a second hand shop and began to work with these as the supports of new paintings.As in a hotel where the same bed sheets are used over and over again, I began to imagine all the stories that these sheets could tell. A child and their bedwetting ; couples making love; or someone dying happily in their sleep. Stretching the sheets on canvas, I use water-based varnish and poppy oil. Paintedareas become transparent with an appearance like bedwetting and it is possible to slightly see the wooden frame of the support underneath.

The concept is to layer my own actions upon the traces of those of strangers exploring arange of visible acts as painting.

Group Show "Face to Face : Hildegard Spielhofer x Jun Azumatei"

 

PLATFORM STUDIO(Tokyo/JP)

17 - 22 October 2011

The building where the galleries, APS and Platform Studio, are housed was built in 1932. It is the oldest, apartment building that exists in Japan today. One of the exhibition spaces APS is painted in pure white. On the other hand, the walls in Platform Studio expose their rough texture without any paint. My aim was to encompass those walls as part of my artwork. I exhibited two paintings on the left wall of Platform Studio. In creating thepaintings, I first pasted pieces of yellow masking tape, and then applied water-based varnish and gold pigment. The parts protected with the pieces of tape expressed a negative element. That negative element (that is, thepieces of tape) was removed from the paintings and then pasted onto the wall on the opposite side so that they could reveal the mirror image of the paintings. The pieces of tape that were pasted directly on the uneven wall surface shined in gold due to the effect of the lighting. The installation work in its entirety repeatedly reversed the negative and positive elements.
