Imura art gallery is pleased to announce “golden silver,” an exhibition by Natsunosuke Mise. For the artist’s first solo exhibition at Imura Gallery in seven years, he shows new works created in the image of gold and silver. Mise is normally based in Yamagata Prefecture, but for this exhibition he has attempted to reproduce here in Kyoto the approach and production processes that underlie his practice.


Mise has been teaching at the Tohoku University of Art and Design in Yamagata since 2009. When the Great East Japan Earthquake hit the Tohoku region on March 11, 2011, he directly experienced the disaster of a major earthquake for the second time in his life, following the Great Hanshin earthquake that occurred when he was a student in the Kansai area. This occurrence led him to reconsider the role and practice of art, and greatly influenced his work ever since. This year is the tenth since the disaster. According to the artist, he doesn’t particularly feel anything special about the tenth anniversary, but at the same time, it would feel wrong to let the anniversary pass unmarked.


Mise works in the area of nihonga (Japanese-style paintings), but his paintings consistently break through the boundaries traditionally ascribed to nihonga. In recent years he has been producing works in the shape of flags, exhibiting them a wide range of venues. During the disaster ten years ago, he was perhaps seeking a new flag (painting) for Japan that could function as a catalyst for depicting a brighter future. And now, at a time when we are filled with anxiety at the invisible threat of a virus, it is valuable to consider where Mise’s flags could lead us.


Coinciding with the timing of this exhibition, the artist is presenting a large work at the Kyoto City Kyocera Museum of Art as part of “Bubbles / Debris: Art of the Heisei Period 1989–2019.” This is a good opportunity to explore his work at two venues in close proximity.

この度イムラアートギャラリーでは、三瀬夏之介の個展「golden silver」を開催いたします。ギャラリーでは7年ぶりの個展となる本展では、山形で制作を続ける作家の思考や制作プロセスそのものを京都で再現する形で、金と銀をイメージした新作を発表いたします。

2009年から東北芸術工科大学で教鞭をとる三瀬にとって、2011年3月11日に起きた東日本大震災は、学生の頃に体験した阪神大震災以降、再び未曾有の災害に直面した一人の作家として、美術の在り方を問い直すきっかけとなり、その後の活動にも大きな影響を与えました。震災からちょうど10年という節目の今年、三瀬は特別な意識はないものの、この日を無視するのも違和感だと話します。

一貫して日本画という枠組みを超えた制作を続けてきた三瀬ですが、近年は、旗のような形状の作品を様々な場所で発表しています。10年前の震災の最中、未来を描くための触媒として機能するような新しい日本の旗(絵)を探し求めていたのかもしれません。姿の見えないウィルスに戦々恐々としている現在、三瀬の立てる旗は私たちをどこに導いてくれるのでしょうか。

同時期に、京都市京セラ美術館にて開催中の「平成美術:うたかたと瓦礫(デブリ)  1989-2019」にも大型の作品を出品しています。こちらもあわせてご高覧いただけますと幸いです。
