HIBI by Masahisa Fukase

「ヒビ」は深瀬昌久の最終作のひとつである。1990年から1992年にかけて日々の道すがら地面の亀裂を撮影したものをプリントに焼き、自ら一枚一枚を着色した。そして1992年2月、ニコンサロンにて開催された個展「私景’92」にて、このほかの作品シリーズ「私景」「ブクブク」「ベロベロ」と共に公開。その4ヵ月後、新宿ゴールデン街の階段から転落、脳に障害を受けたことから作家人生を閉じた。

Hibi literally comprises a series of street photographs by renowned Japanese photographer Masahisa Fukase. Each of the black and white images painstakingly attend to the road’s surface – the worn road-markings, the fading lines and arrows eroded by the city’s innumerable inhabitants, a web of fissures in the asphalt. In 1992, Fukase printed and painted the works for a solo exhibition, 'Private Scenes ‘92', held at Nikon Salon in Tokyo. He overlaid a set of bromide prints with fluid drawings in brightly coloured inks and on every image the physical presence of the artist is traced, a shadow-presence which seems to offer a reading, an interpretation but one that can never be fully resolved.
