Thu Kim Vu(トゥー・キム・ヴー)、十勝で奮闘中!

やっと札幌に慣れて来たころに、十勝に旅立っていった、ベトナムのトゥー。
初めてのことで心配しておりましたが、十勝のとかるねさんがfacebookに記事を書いてくださっていました。地域の方とも交流し、元気でやっている様子!

11/1〜11/3には『トゥーさんと作ろう♪ ランタンワークショップ』を開催し、3日間とも定員を超えるお申込みがあったそうです。

こどもも大人も混じって制作。みんな真剣。

ベトナム・ハノイ市生まれ。ハノイ美術大学卒業の後、シカゴ美術館付属大学院で修士課程修了。
トゥー・キム・ヴーは、紙でつくった小さな立体物に黒いインクでドローイングするというシンプルな手法で作品を制作する。旅をする時に記憶や観察によって頭の中に形成されるその都市のランドスケープを、その立体物で表現する。書道や水墨画等で使われる伝統的な素材を用いながら、立体のかたちや軽さだけではない、多様な空間に適応できる柔軟さを活かした作品を制作する。

1979年フィリピン西ネグロス州生まれ、リサール州に在住する現代アーティスト、そして剥製家。マニラのサント・トーマス大学でファイン・アートを専攻し、主に抽象画を描いていたが、アート・スチューデンツ・リーグ・オブ・ニューヨークで短期コースをいくつか受講した後の2002年頃から多様なメディアで表現するようになった。
2009年に東南アジアで大きな被害をもたらした台風ケッツァーナが起きた時、彼の作品の多くが浸水被害にあったことが転機となり、アート作品の価値とは何なのかを探ることをテーマに制作を始める。2013年には、自ら制作した絵画や鳥の剥製を、アーティスト、鑑賞者、批評家に見立てた作品で構成された個展『It’s All in the Mind』を開催した。

Call for Submissions: Tokachi Artist-in-Residence, Hokkaido, Japan

Call for Applications

Deadline: Thursday 12 September 2013 (8am JST)
*One place is available for this opportunity

T-AIR (Tokachi Artist-in-Residence) is offering an opportunity to one artist for a 45-day residency in Urahoro, a town in Tokachi district, east Hokkaido, Japan.

The district of Tokachi is located in east part of Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido, which has the second largest area as an island after Honshu. Since Tokachi has flourishing industries in agriculture, forestry and fishing, it is often considered as one of the main food production bases in the country. Tokachi’s success was made possible by both the local pioneers, who cultivated the land, as well as its rich natural surroundings.

The visiting artist will stay in the town of Urahoro, and will have an opportunity to utilise Tokachi’s rich resources including food in their art production and/or workshop(s) during the residency.
