Mikito Tanaka "Try to go over there" #027
Mikito Tanaka, a Kyoto-based photographer, started his project Try To Go Over There in 2003. The project presents 28 works which are ironic and touching at the same time. They are fueled by visually futuristic and constructivist allusions conceived by the artist, with a lasting impression remaining anchored in humor.
The psychological discoveries and anticipations of the artist are realized in dangerous situations. Tanaka inserts a human figure, which we later find to be himself, into places where a human being is not allowed or meant to be. A unique proof of his endeavor is captured on 120 mm film.
Most strikingly, Tanaka performs all the dangerous actions depicted by himself. In one instance he stands in a provocative pose on an iron bridge or on a ferry’s wheel 15 m above the surface, in another he seems to be flying over the monochrome water or hovering in the space of a huge iron lozenge construction. In order to capture the image he envisions, he jumps into the water time and time again, getting drenched in the process, all to realise his vision. Despite this methodical and precise execution, there remains a deliberate touch of amusement and comedy within his work.
Tanaka is not just bringing the idea of masculinity to audacious visibility, but most importantly challenging physical and psychological limitations. In a way, the artist breaks social constraints, whilst also relishing his almost cinematic gambits, which grant him a single glorious moment of total freedom - a flight away from everyday life.
After taking an analogue photo, Tanaka removes the details, which he considers to be nonessential, and reduces the complexities of nature to their basic underlying geometrical forms in order to highlight the economy of line and aesthetic austerity. By solely maintaining the fundamental aspects and forms of the objects which make up the image, Tanaka is able to give weight and value to a minimalistic approach to landscape architecture.
Architecture plays a very important role in his landscapes. Tanaka cynically mirrors the meaning and purpose of technical constructions and objects and their reflection in previous styles of art. He plays with the patterns of essential perceptions of architecture, from a celestial dome in the Bush Barrow Lozenge to modern photography, which has praised the victory of man over nature.
The subjective experience of passing through Tanaka’s landscapes resonates in the viewer and effectively invites him or her to join in the artist’s romantic-objective reflections on our contemporary relationship to nature and society.

    Detailed Description : With her new project, 3045 Variations on “The Feast of Venus”, the artist explores all the different possibilities conceivable on one theme, using various mediums she is trying to expand this particular painting of Rubens and proved different conceptual interpretation each time. “I’ve been fascinated by the idea of how many forms this Rubens painting can take ever since I attended a lecture on his legacy. Intrigued by the multitude of variations on the same theme produced by a number of artists of Ruben’s epoch, I often find myself questioning the idea of authenticity. It is both intriguing and greatly satisfying to hear viewers asking me: Did you paint this?” Through such evolution of ideas and indirect influence of casual observers, ambiguity has become a core ingredient in her works.

    Detailed Description : Black Box - Consolation, 2017 Ink, coffee, coloured pencil,  paper on wooden panel 117 x 73 cm (46 x 28.7 inches)  Rooted in Japanese centuries-old tradition of depicting small details Hiroko Shiina externalise women’s archetypal sexual allure, female genital mystery. In her new work “Black Box - Consolation, 2017” Hiroko Shiina provides her personal investigation into the hidden psychology of the female inside. She opens a Black Box, a parallel mysterious world where borders between reality, memory and dream, fear and pleasure of expectations are blurred. Images seem weightless. They are flicking, fluttering, moving inside themselves, hair is blown without the wind, streams of water and blood are in dilatation, we can hear the growth of grass, pulsating heart of the fetus, bones turning into landscapes, sounds sinking into the black velvet background. Her world is astringently sensual intensified with the fleur of fatale romance. It is even more etherealised by subdued colours and infused coffee stains. This stains work like patina which lends old things their beauty and conveys the atmosphere of solitude or loneliness. Voyeuristic sensationalism derives from delicately depicted small details which work like special marks helping the viewer to perceive the artist’s world and to read it as the alphabet of reality.

    Detailed Description : Material, shape, dimension, structure all express the philosophy of Hiroko Tsuchida. Things that she wants to express wonder around her head and finally, they materialize as solid concept. Hiroko Tsuchida  turns safety pins, bells, band-aids, whistles, scissors and other ready-made objects into conceptual tools for “self-reflection”. Using these everyday things, as “forms of media” she endows them with new meanings, urging viewers to reconsider implications of newly constructed images. Thus, protractors in “Starline, 2017” become not only a measuring instrument but also turn into a symbol of envisioning the artist’s path into the future. “BLEND ~push beyond one’s limit-, 2016“ made of 12321 plastic muddlers and based on the “Black Swan” theory by N. Taleb. Artist is trying to deal with Black Swan events which happen around her. In such situations the artist should blend inside everything that is falling on her. She should unfold her wings and go beyond current limits of her knowledge and experience to deal with the uncertainty of the world.

    Detailed Description : Kaoru Yamamoto “Lovers 100” Kaoru Yamamoto works in the aesthetics of technological sublime. She creates digital images in the computer moderated environment according to the logical construction of unique Japanese spatial contextual awareness. In her new work “Lovers 100” she is intuitively modelling the motion of traditional Japanese painting by putting a couple in love onto imaginable journey through the city of Osaka, which is represented by images of its famous places. This images work as spatial contextual awareness marks like a cartographic map, which present the environment of the user/viewer at the present time and location or at sometime could be anticipated future context. The context of the journey is defined in multiple ways. It is boundless like love itself. The work is composed of 35 individual scenes with no discernible central scene. The particular scenes are scattered around and the overall impression is one of randomness. Strategy used by the artist resembles of classical Japanese painting. For example, Jingoji Landscape Screen (beginning of the 13 century), where each individual scene is separated by small hills and banks of the river without any interference of other scenes, thus allowing a coexistence within the sphere of the picture plane. The artist is literary cutting her work into separate pieces. “Cut” is kiri in Japanese language and is also a distinctive notion in traditional aesthetic discourse. The “cut” appears as a fundamental feature in ikebana in which organic life is cut off in order to let the true nature of the flower come to the fore. Or another distinctive example is the dry landscape garden which owes its existence to the landscape being cut off from the natural world beyond its borders. The best world wide known example is the Fifteen Rock Garden at Ryoanji Temple in Kyoto. At Ryoanji the dry rock garden is cut off from the outside by the wall that is low enough to permit a view of the natural surroundings.
