Spectrum File 18 Toru Urakawa
at Spiral
Media: Sculpture - Installation
(2017-09-25 - 2017-10-09)

A spectrum is the band of colors created when light shines through a prism. To celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2015, Spiral showcased a wide range of creative talent who were inspired by this idea and looked ahead for new potential across conventions and borders in their current and future activities. Today up-and-coming artists and designers continue to work in ways that transcend medium, category, nationality, and generation. “Spectrum File” is an irregular series of exhibitions inviting various guest curators to select and introduce overlooked talent, while encouraging discussion on how art can raise awareness about society. During each exhibition there will also be talks and other opportunities to share ideas. For this installment, the work of multidisciplinary artist Toru Urakawa, known as a programmer and stage technician who in recent years has showed interest in establishing everyday things in mathematical terms, will be presented following recommendation by Kunihiko Morinaga, the designer behind the fashion label Anrealage. In 2016, an artificial intelligence managed to beat a top-class human chess player for the very first time, becoming a hot news topic. Concerned about the impact of progress around machine learning on society, in one of his “collaborations between computers and people,” Urakawa developed the idea of a dictionary based on data obtained by a self-learning machine. A dictionary can be referred to as a “dictionary of consciousness,” emphasizing the flow of consciousness and sensibilities of a certain era, or a group or individual sharing a culture. In this exhibition, master of modern Japanese literature Soseki Natsume’s stream of consciousness will be presented as a single book. Gathering a huge number of words from several of Natsume’s novels, Urakawa analyzes the similarity and frequency of the contexts that surround the appearance of certain words. This is a dictionary designed in a completely new way that allows for an overview of consciousness. When Natsume thought about “the future,” what else was he thinking of at the same time?

Michael Anastassiades Exhibition

Michael Anastassiades Exhibition
at Taka Ishii Gallery Tokyo
Media: Sculpture - Product - Crafts
(2017-09-26 - 2017-10-28)

Michael Anastassiades has been working for more than twenty years in lighting and furniture design. For his first presentation with the gallery, he will be showing four lighting works. The first of these, “Mobile Chandelier 3,” is part of the ongoing “Mobile Chandelier” series which started on 2008. The “Mobile Chandelier” plays with equilibrium through dialogue between perfectly shaped spheres and minimal lines. The other three unique works are from the series “General Illuminations,” “Biri Biri,” “Captive,” and “Nudge,” inspired by classic pinball machines. “Nudge” offers something akin to a visual illusion, as the light on the mirror surface is reflected to create the sense of endless depth. Anastassiades is interested in how lighting exists in two realities: being on and being off. When off, lighting is shown as an object, a visual element that occupies the space; it communicates its materiality, reflectivity, fragility and volume. But when on, the glowing source fills a completely different space within the room, engaging in a relationship between all the objects around it, and casting shadows around other objects against the wall. Anastassiades’ design philosophy is to preserve the inherent qualities of a given material; he finds beauty in every material, seeing material as material. He is also interested in the dynamic of how one’s relationship to objects changes over time. Positioned between fine art and industrial design, his pieces exist between what is utilitarian in function, and poetic and enigmatic in presence. Anastassiades was born in 1968 in Cyprus. He trained as a civil engineer at Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine in London before taking a Master’s Degree in Industrial Design at the Royal College of Art. He founded his London studio in 1994 and his brand in 2007, broadening the availability of his signature designs. Venue: Viewing Room, Taka Ishii Gallery, Tokyo

at Ginza Graphic Gallery
Media: Graphics - Party - Workshops - Talks
(2017-09-26 - 2017-11-07)

Typesetting is one design elements of typography, referring to the craft of physically arranging and setting type on the page. It is also the title of this long-awaited solo exhibition by Yoshihisa Shirai, who works predominantly in the field of book design and editorial design. While it introduces a lineup of beautiful book bindings, this somewhat unconventional show will also present a selection of pages printed mainly in a single black ink color arranged side by side. When one thinks of Shirai, what immediately comes to mind is his ten year stint working on the art direction for the highly respected design magazine “Idea.” Despite it being a bimonthly publication, each and every issue can be considered a work worthy of any collection. Shirai has also been involved in the creation of many other books to date. When working of these, he takes into careful consideration the objects, situations, and people they concern, using this as a basis to produce each page to perfection. His unique approach is echoed in every text, with his personal touch - be it lighthearted, solemn, or stylish - shaping every publication. Encountering his innovative typesetting results in an unforgettable reading experience. In this exhibition, reference materials used by Shirai during the production stage will be presented alongside works by him. See how he cites and references pre-existing works, changing the face of typesetting as he goes.

Jean-Pierre Melville: Cinéaste du Noir

Jean-Pierre Melville: Cinéaste du Noir
at National Film Center
Media: Video and Film - Talks
(2017-09-26 - 2017-12-10)

The name of film director Jean-Pierre Melville shines with a special brightness in French film history. Having devoted himself to American films in his youth, he made his debut with the feature length independent film Le Silence de la Mer (1949) without any training as a film director whatsoever. Melville came to prominence when he was commissioned to direct Les Enfants Terribles (1950) by Jean Cocteau, who wrote the original novel. His independent spirit was loved and respected by young Nouvelle Vague filmmakers. He gradually gained recognition as a great director of film noir, and built up his reputation in French cinema with hard-boiled crime films such as Le Doulos [The Finger Man] (1962), Le Deuxième Souffle [Second Breath] (1966), Le Samouraï [The Godson] (1967), and Le Cercle Rouge [The Red Circle] (1970), as well as the big budget war film Army of Shadows (1969), based on his own experiences in the Resistance. Notably, it is not too much of a stretch to say that two major film stars, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Alain Delon, broke new ground with Melville’s films. Depicting complicated human beings who have both good and evil sides, and weaving men’s ties of friendship and betrayal into drama, Melville also had a strong influence on Asian films including those from Japan. To commemorate Melville’s centenary in 2017, NFC is looking back at his distinguished life and achievements by showing materials mainly collected over a period of many years by film director Olivier Bohler, who made the documentary “Code Name Melville” (2008).
