 GALLERY IND.ではアルゼンチン出身の写真家ギジェルモ・デ・アンヘリスの4回目の個展を開催いたします。

デ・アンヘリスはマドリード(スペイン) 滞在の約10年間に建築、デザイン、哲学を学びアルゼンチンへ帰国、その後2016年に再度スペインへ渡り、現在バルセロナに活動拠点を置く写真家です。

作品は全てスクエアのフォーマットに収められており、この正方形が画面を構成する様々な要素の共鳴を引き出す最も効果的な枠組みだと考えているようです。

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ます。元来、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。しかしながら、デ・アンへリスの写真が示しているのは、一枚の写真も具象と抽象が折り合う画面の中で普遍的な意味を持ちうるのだということです。

 

 GALLERY IND. is pleased to announce the solo exhibition by a fine art photographer Guillermo De Angelis. He was born and brought up in Rosario, Argentina, and afterward he lived nearly 10 years in Madrid, Spain. Having studied architecture, philosophy and design there, he is currently a photographer due to destiny or karma, he says. De Angelis has ever presented all of his photographic images in square format. This format, in which the relations among the elements of the composition get a special prominence, highlights serenity in harmony with his pictures. In his quiet pictures, and also in the titles of the works 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, by whispering rather than by shouting.

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.

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

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

 After doing architecture, design and philosophy I dove into photography. With the sort of enthusiasm that drives you to move forward, or better still, inwards. Hoping to discover within, rather than outside myself, what I am trying to show. I choose to take pictures not prepared. I try to get the expression through the economy of resources. Focusing on the details that  strike me as essential. Suggesting clearly, presenting without describing.

建築、デザイン、哲学を経た後、写真の世界に飛び込みました。前進するように人を駆り立てる、又はそれ以上に人をその内面へと向かわせるような熱を感じていました。自分が表現しようとしているものを自己の外部にではなく内部に発見できることを望んでいます。私は写真を撮影する際には特に準備をしないようにしており、無駄を排した表現をするようにしています。細かな描写はせず、本質的と思えるものに焦点を当て、示唆に富んだ表現をするように心がけています。
