SCAI THE BATHHOUSE




d0079151_146745.jpg



本当につらい。連休明け。ひどい話だけれど何もしたくない。脳が動かない。やる気は取り戻せるのでしょうか。眠れないし。
先日、2年ぶりにSCAI THE BATHHOUSEに行きました。上野にあるギャラリーです。銭湯を改築設計したギャラリー。
だからその名もズバリ、BATHHOUSE。東京で一番大好きな美術館が原美術館なら、一番好きなギャラリーはスカイザバスハウス。
とても大好きだと言いながら、上野は遠いので、残念ながら出不精な私にはなかなかどうしても縁遠くなってしまいます。

5月について思うこと。



信じられないくらい、5月には、幸も不幸も違わず色んなアクシデントが私に降り掛かってくる。ここ5年間ずっとそう。

2009年5月、人生初の入院。健康だけが自慢の私が。
2008年5月、10年来の付き合いになるあのバカと初の大ケンカ。麻布十番の友人宅に雲隠れ。
2007年5月、ロンドンの設計事務所で採用通知を頂くも、ワークパーミットがおりず断念。
2006年5月、不思議な紳士ディレクターから突然の設計依頼。記念すべき設計デビューをさせて頂いた。
2005年5月、学校卒業後、一緒に独立した友人が意識不明の状態。そのまま、とてもツライ、さよなら。

この友人がいなくなってから、横浜の実家に帰ってとても沢山のことを考えた。この先の不安、独立に対するトラウマ。
あの時はもう設計することさえ怖かったし、前にも後ろにも身動きがとれず、脱水症状になるほど毎日泣きました。
そのとき、Wonderwallにすがるように伺って、皆さんに泣き言を。。そのときボスが言ってくれた言葉を私は今も忘れません。
あの言葉、プライスレス。。片山正通が私だけに言ってくれた言葉だから世界遺産ならぬ宇宙遺産です。誰にも教えたことがない。
私がドン底を見たとき、親身に支えてくれたWonderwall。だからプレッシャーが強すぎて辞めたくなっても、辞めない。

成長できているんだろうか、私は。そんなことをふと思う。
初の東京暮らしは友達とシェアして借りた代官山のマンション。1人あたりの家賃は今の部屋の家賃の3分の1。
その後、目黒に引っ越して、家賃は今の部屋の家賃の2分の1。

成長できているみたいです。少しずつですが。ちなみに、
目黒に住んでいた頃の月収を全部つぎこんだとしても、今住んでいる麻布の部屋の賃料さえ払うことができない。

自分の努力は時折、客観的に眺めてみた方が良いようです。
自分で認識している自分より、なんだ、がんばってるじゃん、なんて思えることがあると思います。

冷静に今日、こんなことをふと思った。
こんな風に私の今までの色々をかいつまんで書くと、うっとうしいですね。笑 申し訳ないです。そろそろ眠れそうです。。

Lacuna - Craig Andrews Exhibition : 2.Novenber - 2.December 2007 / Show at Studio 1.1 / London, UK
d0079151_5165878.jpg
Studio 1.1 is very pleased to present Craig Andrews in his first solo show.
On initial viewing his work, both in photography and film, might seem to almost perversely contradict its medium - the photographs draw out time, extending the moment, while the videos defy sequential narrative, refusing to resolve themselves. Embedded in the photographs is far more time, and in the video work as gradually becomes apparent far less, than there should be. Andrews rigorously fixes and un-fixes images in order to register duration, invisibility and absence, allowing time to saturate the photographs and dissipate in the video work.

In the dead of night Andrews forensically records the overlooked and obscured, searching for subject matter where there appears to be none. Using long exposure times far away from man-made light sources, he sets up his camera to retrieve the overlooked and present temporal conflations from that apparently eventless world. These trees, these colours are invisible to us and can only be revealed in the darkroom through a process that conjure these unearthly images from the night.n the video work time becomes un-hooked, the moment indefinitely lengthened. Split-second disregarded sequences from TV movies are dissected and reassembled, held up for our re-examination: establishing shots that refuse to dissolve into action are kept scintillating on the edge of vision, the actor waiting, like us, somewhere outside the frame. These non-privileged moments, like the colours and locations recaptured from the night, allow us to take our time, absorbing and reflecting, echoing the time spent behind the camera, in the darkroom, or working in the edit suite.

Lisson Gallery

Lisson Gallery
Gallery

52-54 Bell Street London, NW1 5DA
T: + 44(0)20 7724 2739

website:www.lissongallery.com
open : Monday - Saturday 10am - 5pm

Architect: Tony Fretton


The Lisson is architecturally one of the most subtle and exciting commercial galleries in Europe. Designed by Tony Fretton, it is an L shaped development, built in two phases, and comprises two distinct galleries each with its own frontage and entrance, connected at the first floor level by a large reception area. This provides a range of rooms, varying in light and space, in which two separate shows can be mounted simultaneously. The artificial lighting of the galleries is simple and effective, in keeping with the overall simplicity of the design. Tungsten floodlights are track mounted to match the lighting of the original gallery and to light the walls evenly. The top floor gallery and first floor reception both have large skylights. At night these are lit by daylight balanced fluorescent lamps to maintain the difference in feel between these spaces and the other galleries. The stairs have low voltage down lights cast into the concrete structure. The new building is air-conditioned using fan coil units concealed within extremely slender ceiling voids. Conditioned air is supplied by ceiling slots rather than more conspicuous grilles.

In comparison with its big sister over the river, it is tiny. Converting the old London Hydraulic Power Company building into spaces for visual and performance art has cost just £4m - none of it from the lottery. Just to refresh your memory, Tate Modern came in at £134m. They could probably have done the Wapping Project by nipping over to Bankside and liberating a few building materials when nobody was looking. In art-museum terms, this is pocket-money stuff.But the Wapping project is by no means an art museum. You could describe it as a space where anything can happen, with a rather nice restaurant attached. Like a number of other contemporary galleries and theatres, Wapping is appealing to the punters through their stomachs. Many will go there just to sit among the old, carefully-preserved industrial machines and pipework to sup fashionable metropolitan food and an all-Australian wine list. The more the merrier, for those diners will be financing what happens in the former boilerhouse right next door.

d0079151_17305857.jpg...light reflecting booster technology:simon morse and kevin wright march 22nd – may 6th 2007

Simon Morse makes political capital with his digitally realised, hi-tech 'inventions'. These smart looking, natty little gadgets are deceptively familiar as marketable products, but on closer inspection, their function and use are hard to grasp. The buttons display symbols and abbreviations that can only be guessed at and there is something sinister in their implied use by those 'in the know'. Who uses these devices and why? prompts a suspicion that progress is value laden; shaped by and for a minority (politicians? business?) Once the satire breaks surface, this effortless combination of image and text can be enjoyed for its wit.

Kevin Wright's work has an austere quality that references the production line; partly because his starting point is with inert, man-made objects that have been born of this process... baths, gun turrets, tables are just a few examples... and partly because he applies what could be described as his very own personal methods of product design and manufacture in the studio. These objects have been 're-manufactured'.
