SVERIGE by Gerry Johansson [SIGNED]

スウェーデン人フォトグラファー、ゲリー・ヨハンソン(Gerry Johansson)の作品集。作者が1988年から2005年にかけてスウェーデンの大都市圏を撮影したシリーズであり、タイトルの『SVERIGE』はスウェーデンの意。図像的な意味を含む記号やシンボルが随所に見られるイメージにはどこか懐かしい気配が満ちている。スウェーデン人に特徴的なメランコリー(憂鬱)が伝わってくる作者の作品には、様々な解釈の可能性を見出すことができる。ここでは想像上の物語に実在の場所を登場させるといっただまし絵の効果も使われており、作品は時間と場所、私達の認識や共感を生むものをもう一度見つめ直すことを促し、そこでは写真が撮られた場所などの物理的な情報よりもイメージが内包する独特の気配が重視されている。本作は、Fotografins Hus Contemporary Exhibition Hall(スウェーデン、ストックホルム)で開催された展覧会に伴い刊行。

Gerry Johansson's series entitled Sverige (Sweden) comprises photographs taken in Swedish conurbations between 1988 and 2005. The pictures are borne up by their iconographic signs and symbols, and the viewer feels very much at home with them. The melancholy often considered a characteristic Swedish trait is tangible, but his images open up to various levels of interpretation. There are trompe l'oeil effects as well - photographs of existing places form the backbone of his fictional narrative. His photos also offer us the opportunity to analyze times and places, things we recognize and can relate to. Representation is important in his work, not only physical representation, where the photos were taken, but more importantly the aura contained in his images.
