NO BORDER – or about the power to cross
TRiCERA will be holding a group show “NO BORDER” from November 21 (Sat) to December 5 (Sat). In this article, I would like to explain the point of choosing the artists and the highlight of each artist.
Enjoying the “unknowability” of art
This year, we have selected artists whose works are difficult to distinguish by genre or line, and whose works cannot be viewed in a conventional way.
There are many genres of art, both in Japan and overseas, and now and in the past. I think that many of the artists selected for this exhibition are difficult to explain within the existing framework. But the fact that they can’t be put into words may be proof that they have something new to offer.
It is a privilege of contemporary art to be able to enjoy it with our eyes, of course, but also to be able to enjoy the appeal of the work with words.
Please enjoy the very thoughts of the artists behind the paints and canvases.
Korea-based artist Gahyo Choe’s work is interesting in that she creates space from scratch, to put it simply. She sketches the dreams she has had and then builds up the landscape by p iecing them together, applying very thin layers of paint to express the texture of the dreams. In the context of painting, it’s more like abstract painting, but it’s also figurative in that it depicts the vision in the dream. It seems to me that I am drawing a very delicate line, like the relationship between dreams and reality.
Whether it’s a painting or a performance, I think the one thing you can’t escape about art is that it has to be visible. Visual information is very powerful. It is said that people are 100% what they seem. However, I think that art is a way to express the creator’s emotions, thoughts, history, and social conditions through the language of the object. Of course, it’s fine if the work is complete visually, but I think it’s more fun to appreciate the ideas that exist behind the work.
For example, “Why is this Picasso painting such a mess? If you look at it in a different way, the work of art has a mechanism like a riddle. Perhaps one of the joys of the riddle of art is finding your own way to solve it.
