 アルゼンチン出身の写真家ギジェルモ・デ・アンヘリスによります弊ギャラリーでの6回目の個展 "What flowers keep silent (花が語らないでいること)" を開催いたします。

写真家として活動する以前にデ・アンヘリスはスペインのマドリードに10年間滞在、そこで建築、デザイン、哲学を学んだ後、アルゼンチンへ一旦帰国し写真家としての活動を本格的に開始します。その後、2016年には再度スペインへ渡り、現在もバルセロナを拠点に活動しています。

日本には俳句や短歌の伝統があり、目の前の事象を予め決められたわずかな言葉の枠組みの中で描写しながらも、そこには詠人のスタンスや感情とともに普遍的な意味といったものも詠み込まれていきます。写真が得意とするのは個々の事物の具体的な差異を一見してわからせることであり、そうした普遍的な意味を表現するのは困難だと言わざるを得ませんが、デ・アンヘリスの写真は、説明を極力排したモノクロの静謐な画面の中でそのことを成立させようと試みているかのように見えます。

今回の"What flowers keep silent (花が語らないでいること)"では、デ・アンヘリス作品としては初めてバライタ紙を用いたゼラチンシルバープリント写真を展示いたします。ご興味お時間ありましたらぜひお立ち寄り下さい。

 

* バライタ紙:印画紙の乳剤の中に硫酸バリウムを混入したもので、現像の進行がプラスチックコート紙よりも遅く、現像の「押し」が効いて、調子を思いどおり仕上げることができるため、いまでもモノクロ印画紙のひとつとして使われている。

  

GALLERY IND. is pleased to announce the solo exhibition by Guillermo De Angelis, "What flowers keep silent", his 6th solo show in Japan. Born and brought up in Rosario, Argentina, De Angelis spent nearly 10 years in Madrid, Spain studying architecture, philosophy and design. He is currently a photographer , and it is "due to destiny or karma", he says. In his quiet photographs, and also in the titles of them, on which he puts much importance, we can find a certain kind of insinuations or implications sent out, transmitted to us by a gesture rather than by a signal, not by shouting but by whispering.

In the tradition of Haiku, a type of traditional Japanese poetry, we can catch a glimpse of reality and truth just in limited words with the framework of five, seven, and five syllables. If we don’t doubt that art is a struggle to present the unity between the concrete and the abstract, we can find a number of excellent examples in haikus. Likewise, if we seek for the harmony between the physical and the metaphysical, we can find it in the world of Guillermo De Angelis.

For the first time in De Angelis' solo exhibition, he will be showing black and white photographs developed with gelatin silver prints.

We hope you feel stunning silence and peace in his work.
