Cardboard City ダンボールの街


アンディー・パーソンズ アーティスト・イン・レジデンシー S.I.B.現代美術

 パーソンズのインステレーションはダンボールを主な素材として使用し、ダンボールで出来た街の一角に、現在イギリスでは社会現象となっている「Hoodies」(フーディズ/フードをかぶった若者達)を据え置いた。「Hoodies」とはある意味、社会的に阻害され、正体の知れない者達を象徴している。破棄されたダンボールなどを使い彼が作り上げた街は、現在の経済的な危機と世界各国におけるその影響を表す。また同時にその素材が表す意味合いは、パーソンズの故郷でもあるイングランド・コベントリーに1960 年代に造られた、現在では悪名高きコンクリート建造物の群像や、東京でも未だ見つけることが出来る古い建築物の残像をも示している。つまりそれらは、当時の建築スタイルと都市計画がもたらしたユートピアでもあり、ディストピア/暗黒郷の姿だ。

アンディー・パーソンズ  アイルランド/スライゴー在住、イングランド出身

Cardboard City

ANDY PARSONS Artist-in-Residency at S.I.B. Contemporary Art

2009.11.7 -

We would like to invite you to view the works resulting from the recent artist-in-residency programme at our gallery. Andy Parsons, currently resident in Sligo, Ireland, has produced an installation filling the gallery with a cardboard city, and populating the environment with hoodies. The hooded figures represent the marginalized and anonymous. The environment he has created from discarded cardboard boxes is a comment on the current ecomomic crisis and its impact around the world. The cardboard city also plays with ideas about architectural style and urban planning, utopias and dystopias. Using quotations from 1960s architecture the installation links Tokyo with Parsons home town of Coventry in England, notorious for its massive swaths of concrete.
