この度ご紹介する︎江上越、︎NARAMIX×Ukulelist DAICHIはいずれも、千葉出身かつ千葉を拠点に活動している作家たちです。印象的なストロークの重なりで、コミュニケーションの軌跡を描き出そうとする江上の絵画には、イメージを超えた息遣いが感じられます。日々の活動を通して出会った素材を発展させ、即興的なパフォーマンスを行うNARAMIX×Ukulelist DAICHIは、空間の特性やその場に居合わせた人々をゆるやかに取り込みつつ、揺れ動く状況を表出させようと試みます。 制作手法、ジャンルや肩書きは様々ですが、彼女らの表現に共通して見られるのは、他者の存在にいかに向き合うかという姿勢です。それは、対象との距離を縮め、垣根を越えようとするダイナミックな動きではありません。むしろ、様々な境界線、他者との隔たりを詳らかにしながら、既にそこに存在している美しさに手を添える、あるいは気の流れを捉え合わせる「合気」のような手つきによって、見る人の心を動かします。

The artists I have selected on this occasion - Etsu Egami and NARAMIX×Ukulelist DAICHI - are all born and currently based in Chiba Prefecture. Egami's paintings, with their distinct layers of heavy strokes that attempt at drawing out traces of communication, evoke a sense of breathlessness as they go beyond the image. NARAMIX×Ukulelist DAICHI develop materials encountered on a daily basis to hold improvisational performances that gently embrace the characteristics of a space and the people that inhabit it, as they aim to create experiences of trembling and movement. While each holds a completely different style, genre, and creative title, they share the common quality in that they position themselves across from the existing other. These expressions do not involve dynamic actions that shorten the distance between the object in an attempt at jumping over its boundary. Rather, they reveal the diverse borders and gaps between the other, and moreover, bring light to their inherent beauty. In another sense, the touch in their works picks up on flows of energy, much like "aiki" (a gathering of energy), causing movement in viewers' hearts.
