Tibet: Treasures from the Roof of the World/ 聖地チベット展

聖地チベット展 | 上野の森美術館


I went to The exhibition “Tibet: Treasures from the Roof of the World”.

The exhibition about;
The exhibition “Tibet: Treasures from the Roof of the World” is a comprehensive introduction to Tibetan culture, which has received considerable attention worldwide but is as yet fairly unfamiliar in Japan. We welcome visitors to this large-scale collection of fine arts, shown for the first time in Japan, from palaces registered as World Cultural Heritage sites, temples, museums, and other sources located in China’s Tibetan Autonomous Region and Chengde, Hebei Province.

Tibetan Buddhism was influenced by a different type of Buddhist teachings than the Indian mid-term esoteric Buddhist thought that was transmitted to Japan via China, along with statues, mandalas and Chinese sutras translated from Sanskrit texts, by Japanese monks like Saicho and Kukai. In Buddhist statues and Buddhist paintings, which are an indispensable part of Buddhist practice, the Tibetan Buddhas appear as revered deities who take distinctively Tibetan forms. We invite you to appreciate with your own eyes the fascinating differences between Tibetan Buddhist art and Japan’s Buddhist sculptures and paintings.

聖地チベット展 | 上野の森美術館

展示会「聖地チベット展 | 上野の森美術館」に行ってきました。1000年前の古い仏像が


みどころ

【1】天空の聖地チベットから国宝級の名品
世界的に注目を集めているチベット文化を総合的に紹介する、わが国初の展覧会です。
ユネスコの世界文化遺産に登録されているポタラ宮や歴代ダライラマの夏の離宮だったノルブリンカなど、チベットを語る上で欠かせない各地の寺院や博物館から、美術・文化の名品が集まりました。出品全123件(173点)のうち、36件が一級文物(日本の国宝に相当)という貴重な作品を通して、チベット文化の精華に触れていただけます。

【2】多彩なチベット密教の仏たち
チベット密教美術の魅力を、今日まで大切に守られてきた仏像・仏画や法具を通して紹介します。迷える大衆を仏の道に引き戻すため恐ろしい顔つきを見せる仏や、女性の仏、慈悲と智慧の合一を示す抱擁する仏など、私たちの知らない魅力あふれる仏たち。日本に伝わった密教とは全く異なる、チベット密教の世界がダイナミックに繰り広げられます。

【3】古代から培ったチベットの暮らしの知恵
平均標高4000mを超えるチベット高原では、古くより牧畜と農耕に従事するチベット族が暮らし、厳しい自然の中での生活には信仰と祈りが深く結びついています。こうした密教文化を背景に持つチベット民族が、古代から連綿と培ってきた独特の暮らしの知恵を、漢方や西洋医学と並ぶ伝統をもつチベット医学や装飾品、楽器などを通して紹介します。

At the same time, we need to think about the issues of "tibet". How the the Buddharupa is here, the aim of this exhibition and the history.

Actually I'm very glad to see the Buddharupa of Tibet without the historical facts.

聖地チベット展を見るにあたって、同時に、聖地チベット展の展示目的、チベットの仏像の歴史、現状のチベット問題の矛盾を知ってから見るのも良いかもしれません。

チベットの仏像が実際に見れた事に、撮れも感動しました。

the exhibition of Rebecca Horn


Rebecca Horn


I went to "MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART TOKYO" to see the exhibition of Rebecca Horn called "Rebellion in Silence Dialogue between Raven and Whale". I think the exhibition was very good. If you have time, please go see the nice artwork.

outline;
The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo is pleased to announce a solo exhibition this fall of the work of Rebecca Horn, a major representative of the contemporary German art world. This will be the first large-scale exhibition of her work in Japan.

Horn has been known for her performance works involving the wearing of feathers, horns, and mirrors. Since her participation in the 1972 Documenta show in her 20s, she has energetically pursued a range of artistic activity that continues to tackle new territories of art, one after the other―beginning with kinetic sculpture as well as film, and continuing on to capture the fascination of a great number of people―audiences with an interest not only in visual art, but that include film and dance enthusiasts as well. Her performances, which began in the late 1960s, sought to expand the functions of the human body, improve communications with others, and develop a rapport with mythical animals and nature. The devices that attached to the body and enhanced its physical perceptions were first used in performance, then eventually developed into independent, kinetic-mechanical sculptural works. Later, in what amounted to over ten years of life in New York, Horn undertook the production of highly narrative, full-length films, and incorporated the sculptures and movements from her earlier work into this new context of film, transforming their significance. Since the 1980s, after moving back to her home country of Germany, Horn’s work that directly confronts modern historical issues has been acclaimed for its ability to tie together personal experience and social memory. One early example of this work involves the conversion of the interior of an abandoned tower in the city of Münster into a piece that utilizes its history as the subject matter. In recent years, Horn has been working on large-scale installations and stage designs using music composed by Hayden Chisholm. She has also made, without the use of tools, a series of unrestrained drawings that emphasize direct human movement, developing a completely free mode of creation.

This exhibition is a full-scale presentation of Horn’s work. With all representative film footage, which includes the performance records from the 1970s and the full-length narrative films from the 1990s, as well as installations and two- and three-dimensional works that she has been producing since the 1990s, a total of forty exhibits allows one to trace the development of relationships between the various media in which Horn works. The flow of various invisible energies of humans and nature are transformed into visible form via movement, light, and the traces of such. The exhibition promises to be an unparalleled opportunity to experience this highly original, creative trajectory in MOT's vast space.

レベッカ・ホルン展 −静かな叛乱 鴉と鯨の対話





東京都現代美術館に、レベッカ・ホルン展 −静かな叛乱 鴉と鯨の対話 を見に行ってきました。映像とインスタレーション作品の展示があり、特にインスタレーション作品の展示は凄く良かったです。今年のベスト3に入ると思います。


レベッカ・ホルン展
−静かな叛乱 鴉と鯨の対話

展覧会概要

 この秋、ドイツの現代美術家レベッカ・ホルン(1944 - )の、日本で初めての個展を開催することになりました。

羽や角をまとうパフォーマンスで知られるレベッカは、二十歳代での「ドクメンタ鶩」展参加以来、次々と新たな領域に挑戦する精力的な活動を通して、美術のみならず、ダンスや映画の愛好者をはじめ、多くのひとびとを魅了してきました。

他者とのコミュニケーションの回復や、自然との交感を求める初期のパフォーマンスで着用した知覚の拡張装置はやがて、機械仕掛けで動く立体作品へと展開していきます。その後、滞米生活の中で着手した長編映画では、これら動く彫刻を取り込み、その意味の変容を軸とした映像世界を展開しています。また1980年代に活動の拠点を母国に移してからは、近現代史と直接向き合い、個人の体験を社会の記憶と結びつける作品は高い評価を得てきました。近年は、作曲家との協働によるインスタレーションや舞台美術、のびやかなドローイングを手がけ、その自由な創造は常に新たな関心をひきつけているのです。
 
 本展は、パフォーマンスの記録から長編映画まで、映像の代表作全てと、絵画や彫刻の近作をあわせ、それぞれのメディアを関係づけながら展開してきた活動を本格的に紹介するものです。自然や人間の様々なエネルギーの流れを、目に見えるかたちに変換していく、独自の創造の軌跡を堪能するまたとない機会となるでしょう。
