MAR by Bjarne Bare

CORNERKIOSK PRESS」のディレクターであり、ノルウェー・オスロでアートギャラリー「MELK」を運営するノルウェー人アーティスト、ビャーン・ベア(Bjarne Bare)の作品集。本書は、ストリート写真への回帰が試みられており、タイトル「MAR(完全さの損失)」は一見して写真の大部分を指しており、身の回りにありふれた物の無秩序さを表現している。

A collection of images made in and around Los Angeles suggests an interest in the return to street photography, principally in matters of abstraction, narration and the picture-plane in photographs. As with pictures, the value of focusing on the detail does not lie in the subject itself, but rather in the particulars carried within the surface of the object. Acquired by the Oslo National Academy of the Arts Library, MoMA and Swarthmore College. MAR consists of recent work by Bjarne Bare made in and around Los Angeles. In MAR, the collection of images suggests an interest in the return to street photography – while simultaneously dealing in matters of abstraction, narration and the picture plane in photographs as pictures. As the title seemingly refers to the majority of the images, depicting details of worn car hoods due to excess sun exposure – it indirectly points to the more casual images, sequenced in between, depicting the disarray of objects surrounding us. As with pictures, the value of focus in the details of the car hoods does not lie in the thing itself, but rather in the particulars carried within their surface.
