【最終選考結果】 Points Contemporary Art Centerへの派遣プログラム

S-AIR AWARDへご応募、大変ありがとうございました。最終選考結果は以下の通りです。
選ばれたアーティストの皆さんには、個別にご連絡させていただきます。

松田壯統さん

理由) 「タブー」というのは、深く掘り下げるに値する論題です。松田さんが錦渓の歴史的な情報を調べて出したプランは、彼自身の制作の文脈においてもなにか変化をもたらすようなきっかけになるでしょう。錦渓に着いてから、地元の文化を調査し、一般的な「生と死」という概念に、彼自身の言葉で変化をもたらすことが可能となれば、今回のレジデンスで得られるものは大きいかと推測します。これまでの作品を拝見すると、多様な手法をつかって表現されていて、作品の内容と表現方法の点で成熟度・完成度が高いと感じます。

Taboo is the topic which is worth deepening. The artist collects the historical information of Jinxi, and finds a breakthrough that fits the context of his personal creation. If Matsuda could dig deeply into the local culture of Jinxi and transform it into a personalized language which differs from the general idea of “life and death”, he may benefit a lot from PCAC residency program. He has the ability to manipulate a variety of media, and his past works are mature and complete in content and form.

S-AIR AWARD: ポートランドへの派遣作家決定

平成30年度S-AIR AWARD アメリカ合衆国ポートランドEnd of Summerへの派遣は、下記のアーティストに決定となりました。ご応募いただいた皆様、ありがとうございました。

小林知世
Chisei Kobayashi

 

■End of Summer より、小林さん選出にあたってのコメント

小林さんは、アーティストとしての経歴はまだ始まったばかりだが、彼女が描くひとつひとつの絵画作品が、これまでの画家たちが挑んできたことに頼るだけではなく、自分なりの絵画のアプローチを探しているような、実験的な感性を持っているように感じた。同時に、総体的に形式的一貫性があり、美術表現を理解し、方向性もしっかりと持っている。方向性をしっかり持ちながらも、制作の方法に関しては実験的であるという、バランスがある。申請書には、自分の活動の外の世界にも興味を持っているように見受けられた。小林さんは、アート作品と鑑賞者のつながり、アーティストとコミュニティとの関係、またそれが札幌と国内のほかの地域、そしてアメリカとどう異なるのかを探ることに興味を持っているように見受けられた。

 

※今回ご応募くださった皆様、今後も海外でのレジデンスの機会を可能な限りつくって参りたいと思いますので、その際は是非またご応募いただけましたら幸いです。ありがとうございました。
