Eric Zetterquist:Objects Portraits
December 8, 2018 – February 11, 2019
大阪市立東洋陶磁美術館

————————–——

1982年到1992年的10年之間,Eric Zetterquist(1962- )在當代藝術家杉本博司(1948-)處一邊工作一邊一邊學習現代攝影表現與東方古典藝術,但現在他的活動以紐約為據點。他關於實物裝置的肖像攝影作品,其實可以稱為「古陶瓷肖像」攝影,是將古陶瓷器物的細節進行高度抽象化藝術處理的一個系列。Zetterquist本人認為,這一系列作品是「東洋與西洋、古代與現代的交會」,其中反映了來自硬邊繪畫作品和宋瓷的影響。倘若再進一步,說其中還有宋代山水畫的審美因素,那麼,可以認為這些作品里也深藏了Alexander Calder(1898-1976)所代表的現代主義構成風格。

迄今為止,Zetterquist已經在費城美術館(2014年)和曼谷的東南亞陶瓷美術館(2016年)舉辦過展覽,均是相應館藏品的實物裝置肖像攝影。在大阪舉辦這次展覽,是日本國內首次對這位藝術家進行介紹,展示他在2016年為本館藏品拍攝的34件攝影作品,且與原作的陶瓷器實物並列呈現。正如不同時代的藝術樣式會有發展變化一般,哲特昆斯特的創作映現的是他眼中的陶瓷器物,具有嶄新的表情。

————————–——

Eric Zetterquist (1962- ) studied contemporary photographic expression and oriental antique art while working for Japanese modern artist Hiroshi Sugimoto (1948- ) for 10 years until 1992. Today he is based in New York. “Object Portraits”, mainly portraits of antique ceramics, is a series of highly sophisticated, abstract expressions of the details of antique ceramics. Zetterquist describes this series as an “East-Meets-West and Old-Meets-New” project, and mentions that he was inspired by hard-edge artworks and Song ceramics. In fact, some of his works suggest influence of Song landscape paintings while other works are reminiscent of modernist composition as exemplified in Alexander Calder (1898-1976) ’s works.

Zetterquist has been photographing the collection in the Philadelphia Museum of Art (2014) as well as in the Southeast Asian Ceramics Museum in Bangkok (2016) and held exhibitions in both museums on his “Object Portrait” series. The exhibition in our museum would be the first opportunity to introduce his works in Japan, which are 34 portraits of ceramic artworks in our collection photographed in 2016. The ceramic works which acted as “models” will also be on display along with their portraits.

Just like exploring different styles of artworks developed in different times, this exhibition looks into a new aspect of ceramic expression through the eyes of Zetterquist.
