When one asks Japanese people what wabi sabi is, it is hard for them to explain this concept. Most Japanese ...

Exhibition in-between Sky and River

空川境界展

 

“Exhibition in-between Sky and River” prays for the restoration of the Kamo River, where “ayu” fish swim upstream. It is developed under the cooperation of the Kamogawa Fisheries Association, to save these fish from cormorants. The exhibition is a photo montage of a large dragon displayed on the river, recalling “Yuzen Nagashi,” the process of removing dyes from cloth in a clean river.

 

「空川境界展:鮎の川鵜被害対策」では、天然鮎が上流まで遡上する鴨川の復活を祈り、賀茂川漁業協同組合の協力のもと川鵜対策の一環として展開。友禅流しを想起させる巨大な短冊状の龍のモンタージュ写真が鴨川水面上に展示され、生態系の保全と鴨川への関心を喚起する。

info

 

With pleasure IBASHO presents a solo exhibition of the Japanese photographer Naoyuki Ogino. 

 

IBASHO will show works from Ogino’s black-and-white series 'Womb of the Myth' from 2010/2011. This series was photographed on the site of the movie studio at Uzumasa Kyoto, Japan, which is one of the last places where the practice of traditional Japanese movie craftsmen remains. The recurrent construction and destruction - birth and delivery - of movie sets in the womb of the studio over a period of 60 years, has become a kind of simulacrum; the atmosphere of the place is filled with the ancient Japanese past, gods and future.

 

Ogino’s most recent works created with photography’s oldest printing technique, the salt print, on thin Japanese washi paper, can be admired as well. The salt prints on show derive from different series, among others from Ogino’s series ‘Skin’ from 2015. With this series he has tried to visualise not only a feeling of presence of a female body, like a breath felt on their skin, but also a materiality through a rich texture in the print that touches the viewer directly and deeply. His other salt prints reveal the deep relationship Ogino has with the Japanese mystical traditions and religions, his images often airing an evanescent world.

Offspring Spirits Exhibition at KYOTOGRAPHIE + 2015

30th April - 6th May 2015 Kyoto, Japan

This series was made in Kyoto, Japan at a local Bon Festival (Spirit’s festival). During one particular day in summer, people gather around a drum tower to be with the souls of their ancestors. Children run around playing and unexpectedly join the elderly in a circle of talk and dance. Parents are talking, drinking, eating and dancing, or playing a drum on the tower for the dancers. Older people, seated in chairs surround the drum tower.

 

The event is a kind of haunting and on these occasions generations gather together and carry their many different worlds into the same place. Here I have found it possible to reopen long abandoned windows, which were closed during the years of my growth and education. I placed myself there to loosen up or free myself from expectations, to reunite divided things and to recover the important spirits. I throw out all of the complex lenses in order to reveal my deserted windows. The world's manufactured lenses are optically very well designed, but perhaps they are too faithful. I needed to give freedom to aberrations, as well as boundaries. I needed to create freedom for both the optical and the imagined axises so that they and I might swing freely.

 

I let myself feel the relief, hold the handmade simple lens and stepped into this haunt. I felt myself become part of a view through a reopening window, which leads back to the Offspring Spirits.

#03 — PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE FLOATING WORLD

 

'Photographs from the Floating World' refers to the famous woodblock prints made by masters such as Hokusai, Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi under the name 'Ukiyo-e', pictures of the floating world. In this centuries-long tradition, artists and artisans made beautiful, stylised artworks with themes such as beautiful women, actors, historic events and folk tales, travel scenes, landscapes and erotica. The development of photography is one of the causes of the demise of this art form, as the labour-intensive cutting and printing could be replaced by the quicker and simpler processes of photography making realistic pictures reachable for the masses. In recent years, more and more photographers are showing a longing for the traditional themes of Ukiyo-e and are also focusing on long-forgotten printing techniques.
