EXHIBITION

Atsuo Hukuda + Shuhei Fukuda
RYUHA = Inheritance of School of Art and Inheritance of Style of Art
福田篤夫+福田周平 展【家 流 派】

各位

流派(りゅうは)とは、華道、茶道、武術といった芸道などの分野において、ある様式化・体系化された技術や技能、伝統を買いその宗家、あるいはその門弟が軽そうしていく集団のことを指します。

福田篤夫(1958-)は金箔を中心に日本で伝統的に使われてきた素材や技法を用い「日本美術の独自性」について考察している彫刻家です。一方、福田周平(1997-)は福田篤夫の子息として現在日本画を学び、銀箔を用いた絵画技法から世界の美術に対する独自のアプローチを探求しています。 本展では親子である両者が偶然同じ金箔・銀箔を選出し作品制作を行っている近似性に着目し、今日現代美術の動向のなかで語られることの少ない「流派」-「個」ではなく「集団」として技術/伝統/様式/家元を継承する - を再び顧みることで、西洋近代化が重要視する「個性」に対する日本文化的「集団性」を新鮮な眼差しで再発見し、延いては洋の東西の違いや、各々のアイデンティに至るまで考えを巡らせようとする試みです。

また本展では、伝統的な日本絵画の流派のひとつとされながらも血族や師弟関係ではなく「私淑」によって様式が継承・発展されてきたユニークな「琳派」に関連させたダフ・ハウスでの福田篤夫の個展と期を同じくして開催されます。当企画は作家活動と並行して「CONCEPT SPACE」を中心に独自の企画活動を三十五年以上にわたり精力的に行ってきた福田篤夫が1991年から継承しているシリーズ「数寄者達-琳派以後の方法-」のコンセプトを、インデペンデント・キュレーターのメイボン尚子(1982-)が一時的に「継承」して行われます。このことからも今回のスコットランドで開催される両展覧会が文化間や世代間、そして分野をまたぐ広義な意味での「家」「流」「派」の継承を鑑みる機会になることを期待しています。

Ryuha is a school of art in which stylised and structured skills, techniques and traditions are inherited collectively. This normally happens by bloodlines of the patriarch or through the students of the school – just as it does for Ikebana, tea ceremony, martial arts and others.

Atsuo Hukuda (b.1958) is a sculptor who has been concerned with ‘identity of Japanese art’ by employing traditional materials and techniques used in Japan, such as gold leaf. Shuhei Fukuda (b.1997) is an art student and a son of Hukuda. He is currently studying traditional Japanese painting, and exploring his own approach to the world by using traditional materials and techniques such as silver leaf. In this exhibition, therefore, we focus upon the proximity between the two artists - who coincidentally picked the same materials to work with, and are father and son. We try to recognise Ryuha once again - where skill/tradition/style/house are inherited collectively rather than individually - especially at a time when we say little about inheritance of tradition in the context of contemporary art. We also aim to re-discover the contrast between ‘personality’ favoured by Western modernism, and ‘collectivity’ attached to the Japanese characteristics. This would then lead us to explore wider discussions around the difference and/or identity between The West and The East.

In addition, this exhibition will coincide with Hukuda’s solo show at Duff House in Banff which relates to Rin-pa (see rear side for details). Rin-pa is unique - even though it is known as one of the major schools/styles of traditional Japanese painting, it has been inherited and developed over time not by bloodlines or pupils, but by indirect relationships of followers with their own free-will and admiration. For this show, the Independent Curator Naoko Mabon (b.1982) temporarily ’inherited’ the concept of the series of exhibitions entitled SUKI-MONO-TACHI: Ways Since Rin-pa that Hukuda - who is also known as an active curator for over 35 years notably through his achievements at CONCEPT SPACE - has been curating since 1991. Hence it is hoped that both exhibitions will provoke a unique opportunity to think about ‘inheritance of school/style/house’ across cultures, generations and disciplines in a wider sense.

Atsuo Hukuda solo exhibition
SUKI-MONO: Ways Since Rin-pa - Duff House
福田篤夫 展「数寄者:琳派以後の方法 - Duff House」

各位

福田篤夫(1958-)は彫刻の教育を受けながらも、これまで長く金箔や銀箔、あるいは漆といった伝統的な日本画の材料と技法を用い制作活動を続けてきた彫刻家です。自身のコンセプト「Dry / Light / Clear / Sharp」に禁欲的に従い視覚化された福田のミニマルな作品群は、十七世紀に大きく発展した、現在「琳派」として知られる様式の系譜に意識的に連なるものです。そしてこの十八世紀は今展の会場でもあるダフ・ハウスが建築された時代でもあります。

本年がスコットランドにおける「Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design」であることからも、本展ではある文化やしつらえのなかにあえてそれとまったく別の文化的視点や感性を招き入れる手法によって、名高いスコットランド人建築家ウィリアム・アダムによるジョージアン様式の邸宅、ダフ・ハウスの荘厳さにダイレクトかつ実験的、そして最もアーティスティックに応答することを試みます。

Although originally trained as a sculptor, Atsuo Hukuda (b.1958) has been employing traditional Japanese painting techniques and materials such as gold leaf, silver leaf and/or Japanese Urushi lacquer. The minimal body of work, visualised strictly according to Hukuda’s concept ‘Dry / Light / Clear / Sharp’, consciously appeared along the lines of Rin-pa. Rin-pa is one of the major historical schools of Japanese painting initiated in 17th century Kyoto and significantly developed in the 18th century – the same period as when Duff House was built – notably by Korin Ogata (1658−1716).

In the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design in Scotland, this exhibition aims to light up the magnificence of the architectural and design features of Duff House. The house is one of the most important Georgian houses in the North of Scotland, and is considered a masterpiece of William Adam. The exhibition draws attention to this through inviting one completely different cultural perspective and sense into another.
