In the realm beyond spectrum / スペクトルの彼方で

Sareena Sattapon ( PhD)

Human, space, and time are essential components in performative art pieces, intricately interconnecting with each other. Traditionally, in the process of creating performances, the artist retains control over all these elements. However, what would happen if the “”Human”” component were not performers but spectators? If “”observing”” equates to “”creating””, How can we control the uncontrolled? “”In the realm beyond spectrum”” is an attempt to connect the audience with artwork by creating a performative space comprising six channels of video mockumentary, a white cube room, and glass wall. The video draws inspiration from the life story of Sareena’s aunt, who resides in Thailand but is depicted within Japan’s context. Viewers can observe and listen from both “”inside”” and “”outside””, and as they become part of the artwork, their role transforms from observers to contributors. The seemingly endless relationships between individuals and spaces may help spectators to revisit the connections they possess.

本展「In the realm beyond spectrum」は、ホワイトキューブとガラスの壁、6チャンネルのモキュメンタリ―映像で構成されたパフォーマンス空間を立ち上げ、観客と作品を接続する試みを行います。映像は、タイに住むサッタポンの叔母の人生譚から着想を得ており、それを日本の文脈に置き換えて描かれています。鑑賞者は作品の「内」と「外」の双方から作品を見聞きし、作品の一部となることで、その立場は鑑賞者から作品の構成者へと変化します。個々人と空間の、一見すると終わりのない関係性は、鑑賞者自らが持つ繋がりを再訪する手がかりとなります。

A special workshop for TUA students will be held with Ho Tzu Nyen, who is currently visiting Japan for his solo exhibition “Ho Tzu Nyen: A for Agents” at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. Students will attend a special lecture on Monday, April 8, to gain an understanding of Ho’s artistic methodology and base approach before participating in the intensive two-day workshop.

Ho’s artworks are rooted in thorough research on the histories of Southeast Asia and East Asia. They are reconstructed in the present day by integrating various media – such as video, animation, performance, VR, and music – as needed, to access a more multi-layered history.  Many of his projects involve close collaborations with researchers, translators, and other artists, sometimes over long durations. In this workshop, Ho will share and speak about the archival materials that he has gathered for his projects related to Southeast Asia, Japan, and Korea. Through conversations, exercises, and group work, we will not only experience his approach to dealing with history, but we will also collectively think about the limitations and possibilities of engaging in the histories of “others”.

*This workshop is a Social Practice Seminar class for second-year M2 students in the Global Art Practice course of the Graduate School of Fine Arts, and is open to students in other departments as well.

Dates and time: 
Tuesday, April 9, 2024 10:00-17:00, Wednesday, April 10, 2024 10:00-17:00

Special Lecture by Ho Tzu-Nyen  “A for Asia” ホー・ツーニェン特別講演会『アジアのA』 


本企画は、4月6日に開幕する東京都現代美術館での個展『ホー・ツーニェン エージェントのA』と連動し、ホー氏を東京藝術大学にお招きして本学の学生および一般に向けた特別講演会を開催するものです。前半は講義形式で、創作活動のベースとなる思想や実践、それを作品化する際のアプローチについて、日本で発表された近作を例にお話いただきます。特に、アジアで広く共有されてきたアニメーションや映画からの引用・コラージュを多用し、歴史の中で不可視にされてきたスパイ、軍人、妖怪、顔のないキャラクターなどを再登場させることで、アジア史の多層性を浮かび上がらせてきた独自の方法論や創作プロセスについて詳しく伺います。

Ho Tzu-Nyen is an internationally renowned artist based in Singapore. Based on his extensive research, he has created numerous video works, installations, and performances that capture and reconstruct the complex multi-layered nature of Asian history in a unique way. In recent years, he has presented a series of new works in Japan, such as “Hotel Aporia” (Aichi Triennale 2019), “Voice of Void” (Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media, YCAM, 2021), and his solo show “Night March of 100 Monsters” (Toyota Municipal Museum of Art, 2021). Through these projects, Ho continues to make a strong impression on Japanese audiences and provide a new perspective on Asian history.

In conjunction with his new solo exhibition “Ho Tzu-Nyen: A for Agents” at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, which opens on April 6, we invite him to the Tokyo University of the Arts to give a special lecture to the students and the general public. The first half of the lecture will be in the form of a lecture, in which he will talk about the ideas and practices that form the basis of his creative activities and the approach he takes in creating his works, using recent works published in Japan as examples. In particular, we will hear in detail about his unique methodology and creative process of bringing to light the multilayered nature of Asian history through his extensive use of quotations and collages from animations and films widely shared in Asia, and making the reappearance of spies, soldiers, monsters, faceless characters, etc. that have been invisible in the history of the region. 

In the latter half of the session, we will take questions from students attending the workshop, which will be co-hosted by the Tokyo University of the Arts and the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo from the following day. We will consider what kind of artistic approach is possible in Asia, which still faces many unspoken historical and political tensions. We hope that this lecture will also provide an opportunity for international students from Asia who are studying at the university to confront history from a pluralistic perspective and connect it with their own artistic expression. We look forward to your participation.

Lecturer : Ho Tzu Nyen
Ho Tzu Nyen was born in 1976 in Singapore, where he lives and works. His films, film-based installations, and performances draw from a vast range of cultural materials and discourse, which are repurposed into a visual machinery that animates the entanglement and complexity of history, subjectivity, and power. Ho’s recent solo exhibitions were held at Singapore Art Museum (2023), Hammer Museum (Los Angeles, 2022), Toyota Municipal Museum of Art (Aichi, 2021–22), Crow Museum of Asian Art of the University of Texas at Dallas (2021), Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (2021), Kunstverein in Hamburg (2018), and Ming Contemporary Art Museum (Shanghai, 2018). He represented Singapore at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011. Ho’s recent group exhibitions include Thailand Biennale (2023), Aichi Triennale (2019), 12th Gwangju Biennale (2018), and 10th Shanghai Biennale (2014). His works have also been presented in numerous international theaters and film festivals, including Theater der Welt (2010, 2023), Holland Festival (2018, 2020), Berlin International Film Festival (2015), Sundance Film Festival (2012), and 41st Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival (2009). In 2019, Ho co-curated the 7th Asian Art Biennial with Taiwanese artist Hsu Chia-Wei at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts.

Touching and Being Touched In a world teeming with tactile exchanges, from the warmth of a handshake to the comfort of an embrace, “Touching and Being Touched,” ventures into the less traversed terrains of human interaction. Mengke employs her art as a means to open up conversations about haphephobia—the profound discomfort or fear of touch, pushing against societal norms that often dismiss or overlook the discomfort associated with unwanted physical contact. Her artworks serve as a bridge, offering a profound, visual dialogue on the complexities of touch, consent, and personal boundaries. Each piece, whether through abstract forms, textured surfaces, or interactive installations, challenges us to confront our own perceptions of touch and the multifaceted nature of human connections and encourages us to consider the layers of meaning imbued in touch and to recognize the strength in setting and respecting boundaries. ——Harris Kayama

触れること‧触れられること 握手の温もりから抱擁の安心感まで、さまざまな「触れ合い」で溢れる世界において『触れること・触れられること』は、人間交流の中でなかなか語られることのない場所へと扉を開きます。梦可(ムオンコー)は彼女の芸術表現を通して、接触恐怖症についての対話の場を開き、望まない身体接触から触発される不快感をしばしば無視したり軽視したりする社会に問いを投げかけます。 彼女の作品は橋渡しとしての役割をもち、触れることの複雑さや同意、個人的な境界線について深い視覚的対話を立ち上げます。抽象的な形や質感のある表面、またインタラクティブなインスタレーションを通じて、各作品は私たち自身がもつ「触れる」ことへの認識を明かにし、人間の繋がりの多面的な性質を提示することで「触れる」に込められた意味の違いを考慮すること、境界線を設定すること、そして尊重することの重要性を促します。 ——佳山哲巳 日本語:柏原瑚子
