MARVELOUS TALES OF BLACK INK by Nobuyoshi Araki

本書はSM誌「S&Mスナイパー」での連載のために撮影された緊縛ヌード写真と、それと同じ強度をもった花のイメージに墨汁で書が描かれたモノクローム作品を収録。花とセクシャリティの関係性をシンボリックに提示した一冊。テートモダンの写真キュレーターSimon Bakerによるテキストを巻末に収録。

"Marvelous Tales of Black Ink brings Araki's language of photography and his games with words together into the same frame. The Kanji (Japanese logographic characters) painted directly and with equal intensity onto both the surfaces of explicit nudes and floral compositions raise the stakes of the symbolic associations between flowers and sexuality beyond even that proposed by Georges Bataille in his classic essay "The Language of Flowers". And although the calligraphic games that Araki plays tend often towards sexuality, they do so only in the most extraordinarily imaginative and intellectually sophisticated ways. These are word-games that would make Marcel Duchamp proud, even if they might also make him blush..." - Simon Baker
