Masahisa Fukase - Private Scenes

The life work of Japanese photographer Masahisa Fukase (Hokkaido, 1934-2012) remained largely inaccessible for over two decades, following a tragic fall that left the artist with permanent brain damage. After his death the archives were gradually disclosed, revealing a wealth of material that had never been shown before. Foam presents a large-scale retrospective with original prints from the Masahisa Fukase Archives in Tokyo. In addition to his seminal body of work Ravens, the exhibition contains a number of important photo series, publications and documentation dating from the early 1960s to 1992. The works combine to form a remarkable visual biography of one of the most radical and experimental photographers of the post-war generation in Japan.


VISUAL BIOGRAPHY
Fukase incorporated his personal struggle with loss and depression into his work in a surprisingly playful manner. His subjects are personal and highly intimate: over the years, his wife Yoko, his dying father and his beloved cat Sasuke regularly featured in sometimes comical, at other times sombre visual narratives. Towards the end of this working life, the photographer increasingly turned the camera on himself. The huge number of self-portraits – precursors to today’s ubiquitous selfie – testifies to the singular, almost obsessive way that the artist related to his surroundings, and to himself.


MASTERPIECE
Fukase worked almost exclusively in series, some of which came about over the course of several decades. He would become famous for his Ravens (1975-1985), an atmospheric and associative visual narrative conceived during a trip to his native Hokkaido. The series would become his life-work and is considered his absolute masterpiece. Ravens was published as a book in1986 and hailed as the best photobook of the past 25 years by the British Journal of Photography in 2010. The flocks of ravens, a sign of a approaching doom, formed a metaphor for Fukase’s state of mind as his marriage with Yoko was falling apart. A little-known fact is that Fukase also photographed his famous ravens in colour. The rare colour Polaroids from the Raven Scenes series (1985) are exhibited outside of Japan for the first time.


FAMILY CHRONICLE
The coexistence of buoyancy and personal grief became a recurrent theme in Fukase’s work from an early date. In the exhibition Kill the Pig (1961), Fukase presented experimental studies of his pregnant wife and still-born child in combination with photographs made in a slaughterhouse: an at once playful and macabre reflection on love, life and death. Memories of Father (1971-1987) shows the life, the slow decay and ultimately the death of his father; a tender homage and a poignant ‘memento mori’. The sometimes humorous and sometimes earnest family portraits of Family (1971-1989), for which the artist portrayed his family in his parents’ photo studio year after year, form an exceptional family chronicle.

Incognito: The Eye in Search

以下リンクより

To discover the unknown, one often has to play the role of the unknown themselves. Photographers are hence many a time, undercover agents taking on new perspectives, guises and identities to contemplate, agitate and displace the status quo. Incognito presents the works of three prominent Japanese women photographers—Rinko Kawauchi, Tomoko Sawada and Yuki Onodera, at phases of their creative journeys where they have encountered an external stimuli for change.

In response, each artist deployed unique strategies of observation and intervention to re-calibrate themselves against their contexts. What ensues is an arresting meditation on relationships between internal and external realities, sensorial and physical elements, and the experience of living through the sheer act of creating and photographing.

裸婦明媚(らふ めいび)

以下リンクより

SNSによって写真の価値が変わったのを感じていた。
タイムラインに次々と上げられる写真が見返されることもなく流れていく…
まるで若いうちしか価値がないと世間で言われている女の子のように感じた。

ヌード撮影をした彼女たちの話を聞いて私の気持ちは変わっていく。

何かを社会に発信したい、私の体で何かを変えられる、
その彼女たちの言葉から私はヌードが持つ強さを感じた。

体ひとつで社会を変えられることを信じている彼女たちを私はなにより信じている。
