Goya Curtainはニュージーランド在住アーティスト、アヌシュカ・アケルの作品をご紹介致します。

「これらは《注目》について、人が一体なにそれに向けるのか、あるいは向けられるのかについての作品です。この注目するということの性質と、それが孕む圧力と不平等さをどう捉えるのかという考察なのです。

 「内がわ」と「外がわ」の関係とは、言わばコンクリートを貫き、外壁や排水管、三階の窓を貫らぬき反響する通りの物音(と熱気)のこだまする叫び声のようだと私は考えてきました。スタジオの外では街灯がかがみ込むようにして身体に灯りを浴びせ、まるで玄関先にこびりついた小便の臭いのように雑然と、あるいは整然と、生体機能を照らしている。わたしには身体の内にカラダが見えるのです。受け継がれてきた複雑なかたちと挙動がーー過剰歯、饒舌、熱を帯びた頭、そして朱い脚。

 これらの作品はこのような考えを元に作られています。しかしこれらはあくまで絵画です。そしてしばし精神がそうであるように、可塑的なのです」

Goya Curtain presents a suite of new paintings by Anoushka Akel.

“These are paintings about human attention, who or what we pay it to and who pays it to us. They’re observations of the quality of that attention and the grappling with attention’s attendant power and inequality. 

I’ve been considering the relationship between the ‘in here’ and ‘out there’, as straining vocal sounds bleed through concrete, through separating walls and pipes and third floor windows, amplifying the tone (and temperature) of the street.

Outside the studio a street lamp bends over, bathing bodies in light, illuminating bodily processes which are organized or disorganized like the sticky smell of urine that sits in the doorway. I see bodies within body’s and their complex inherited forms and behaviors; supernumerary teeth, silver tongues, hot heads and red legs.

These works are made with these thoughts in mind but they are paintings, and like minds, they are plastic.”
