JIRO TAKAMATSU by Jiro Takamatsu

日本人コンセプチュアルアーティスト、高松次郎の作品集。多くの「もの派」の作家たちに多大な影響を与えた人物として知られており、そのキャリアは40年以上に及び、アーティスト、理論家、教師として、戦後の日本の文化界に足跡を残した。本書はアメリカ・ロサンゼルスの「ケーン・グリフィン・コーコラン・ギャラリー(Kayne Griffin Corcoran Gallery)」で開催された展覧会に伴い刊行された。作者のスタジオの写真、制作過程の記録、1974年に日本で放映された制作風景を収めたドキュメンタリーの映像の一部も収録。

Pioneering conceptualist Jiro Takamatsu (1936–98), a major influence on the artists of the Mono-ha movement, had a career that spanned 40-plus years, during which time his considerable influence as an artist, theorist and teacher extended across the Japanese postwar cultural landscape. Takamatsu sought to take art outside conventional and institutional settings, collapsing the boundaries between art and life. His practice shifts across appearance and materials, from drawing and sculpture to photography.

This volume catalogs recently exhibited works (at Kayne Griffin Corcoran, Los Angeles), including the seminal “Rusty Ground.” Also included are archival photography of the artist’s studio, historical process images and stills from a 1974 Japanese television documentary depicting Takamatsu at work. Copiously illustrated, the book offers a timely reevaluation of Takamatsu’s practice following a significant resurgence of appreciation for the Japanese avant-garde.
