Craftsmanship of Owari Nagoya Exhibition

尾張名古屋の職人展

owari

In almost every product we use, exists the skill of a craftsman. As robots and machines dominate the manufacturing industry, we lose the warmth that comes standard with the work of a true artisan. There is something about the creativity and skill of a craftsman for which there is no substitute.

A certain quality which craftsmen put into their work, breathes life into the utilized materials. This exhibition aims to widen the understanding of these skills and qualities and its important role in our lives through the presentation of Owari Nagoya craftsmanship. Through a deeper understanding we can have a greater respect towards the skills which reside in our surroundings.

Up until the digital age, the word “photograph” was associated with a print. Now, it can mean something very different. The definition of the skilled art of photography as it was once known, is slowly blurring as a result of the rapid advances of technology.

In the realm of modern art, there is no shortage of artists who choose to create their works using photography, film, and dimensional artworks. With the current modern art scene in mind, the exhibition aims to explore the various aspects of the relationships between space, time, and the viewer.

As well as 2D art, there will be 3D exhibits and footage by nine artists, and with presentations by photographers, you will be able to discover where the world of photography is headed. Part of the exhibition will be presented bilingually (English/Japanese) so visitors who do not understand Japanese will also be able to enjoy their visit.

When: Until Sun. 28 Sep. (10:00 – 18:00, till 20:00 on Fridays). Last entry 30 minutes prior to closing times. Closed on Mondays (except Mon. 15 Sep.) Also closed on Tue. 16 Sep.

Yayoi Kusama “Eternity of Eternal Eternity”

草間 彌生 「永遠の永遠の永遠」

kusama
An exhibition showcasing the latest creative works of world renowned avant-garde artist Yayoi Kusama (1929~). Creating for over half a century using polka dots and mesh patterning, in 2009 she started working on a new series “My Eternal Soul”. Her unique works evoke our interiors, overflowing with childlike expressions of fun and creative freedom, coming together to create a collection of works which have not been seen before.
In contrast to these vivid colours are these 50 works in the series called “Love Forever”. Kusama spent three years from 2004 working on these monochrome depictions. With her magic touch, she has created an infinitely gushing cascade of images. In addition, her giant pumpkin sculpture, and her light, water, and mirror installation artwork “Gleaming Lights of the Souls” will also be exhibited.
Witness the rare talent of Yayoi Kusama and her pioneering work for yourself at this exhibition.

An exceptional photo journalism exhibition which presents powerful and moving imagery from around the world, depicting scenes of pain, tragedy, loss, and desperation. The Nagoya exhibition is usually held annually at the Nagoya International Center.

BIWA (LOU-GWAT / LOQUAT), LAGI MUSIMNYA!

******
Terbangun di pagi yang cerah hari ini
oleh kicau dan cicit burung besar dan kecil
yang ribut menikmati ranum dan lezatnya ‘biwa’
di balik jendela kamar …
Enam foto berikut ini adalah saksinya.

Tentang buah ‘biwa’, silakan baca tulisan berikut ini yang dikutip dari akun Facebook saya tertanggal 16 Juni 2011. Pada akun FB tersebut tulisan berikut ini dilengkapi dengan album berisikan 19 foto ‘biwa’ yang diambil ‘on the spot’ pada waktu itu. Jika berminat, silakan mampir ke sana.

——————————————————————————

BIWA:

BUKAN BUAH SEMBARANG BUAH

Bahwa setiap hari selama sepekan terakhir cicit burung-burung kecil di balik jendela kamar kediaman saya terdengar jauh lebih ramai dari biasa, itu semata-mata tegal ‘biwa’.

Ranting-ranting pohon ‘biwa’ yang tinggi menjulang dengan dedaunannya yang hijau gelap itu memang merupakan peneduh di saat matahari bersinar panas.

Namun kali ini buah-buahnya yang lebat dan menguning jelas menampilkan pesona tersendiri pula, termasuk buat burung-burung kecil itu.’Biwa’ memang sedang musimnya, dan burung-burung selalu lebih awal mengendusnya.

Terhibur menyaksikan burung-burung itu berloncatan dari ranting ke ranting mencicipi buah-buah ranum nan manis itu, namun tak urung terpikir juga apakah masih akan tersisa buat pemiliknya. Pemilik? Burung-burung itu jelas tak peduli.

Syukur sang petugas sudah menjadwalkan hari petik dan pangkas, sambil menjamin bahwa ‘panen’ tetap berlimpah kendati terjadi serbuan awal oleh pasukan burung itu. Benar juga!

Sejumlah gambar pun diambil dan ditampilkan di album ini disertai rasa penasaran karena ‘biwa’ tak pernah terlihat di tanah air. Ataukah memang terlewat dari pengamatan saya? (NB. Albumnya ada di akun Facebook)

Jepang memang negeri penghasil terbesar ‘biwa’, disusul berturut-turut oleh Israel dan Brasil, meskipun asal-usulnya konon dari wilayah tenggara Cina dan dikenal dengan nama ”lou-gwat’. Karena itu di pelbagai tempat buah ini dikenal pula dengan nama ‘loquat’.

Tengok saja di toko buah-buahan atau pasar swalayan pada hari-hari ini. Tertarik oleh informasi, semalam ketika keluar untuk berbelanja buah-buahan, dijepret juga beberapa deretan ‘biwa’ yang dipajang di tempat penjualan.

Dibeli juga? Tentu tidak. Sekadar membandingkan. Sendiri punya ‘biwa’ di rumah, segar pula karena langsung dipetik dari pohonnya. Dua gambar dari pasar swalayan itu melengkapi album ini. (NB. Albumnya ada di akun Facebook)

Hingga beberapa waktu mendatang, tentu saja, bakal tiada hari tanpa ‘biwa’.
Bukan lagi di balik jendela kamar saya, tempat burung-burung kecil itu berpesta,
tapi di meja makan pemiliknya.

Bukan buah sembarang buah, buah ‘biwa’ nikmat rasanya.
