凝看年復一年圍繞在職人與藝術家身邊的器具、景物。通過殷家樑的影像,《光と闇のはざまに》所呈現的是類似凝視月亮的狀態。人通過物事看見了時間,看見明暗之間模糊的輪廓,有肉眼無法察現的緩漸移動,有無窮無盡的微渺變化。

贏得「京都国際写真祭 Kyotographie​ 2016」KG+ 大獎的香港藝術家殷家樑,移居京都半年,參與當地多位職人和藝術家的生活,創作現正於京都古蹟建築「無名舎」展出的 KYOTOGRAPHIE 2017 作品系列《光と闇のはざまに》(Between the Light and Darkness)。

殷家樑的訪察對象包括製作湯釜、漆器、鏡、神社祭具、榻榻米、染布、和紙及陶器的職人與藝術家。以影像紀錄年復一年圍繞在他們身邊的器具和工作環境,分享京都家族承傳的工藝與精神。

此書由香港獨立出版社 Mosses 配合殷家樑於「京都国際写真祭 KYOTOGRAPHIE 2017」出展作品《光と闇のはざまに》(Between the Light and Darkness) 而出版。旨在打開通往作品世界的另一個入口,提供另一種觀賞的可能性,並希望一位來自香港的藝術家能夠被世界看見。


Gazing at tool and scenery around artist and artisan, through Yan Kallen’s work, Between the Light and Darkness would like to present a similar state with staring at the moon. Through the still image of objects, one could sense the flow of time, the vague edge between light and darkness, the slow but exact movement could not be spotted by eyes, and constant change of everything.

Yan Kallen, who has been awarded the Kyotographie 2016 KG+ prize, moved to Kyoto half a year ago. He has been visiting the working area of Japanese artisan and artist. The work which is now exhibiting in Kyoto monument Mumeisha, Between the Light and Darkness, is based on this experience. In this work, Yan observes kettle, lacquerware, mirror, tools used in rituals, tatami, dyed cloth, Japanese paper, pottery, artist and artisan. Yan recorded their working tools and environment, share the Japanese artisan spirit with other in image.

This book is published by Hong Kong independent publisher Mosses, in accordance with the artwork Between the Light and Darkness, which is exhibiting in KYOTOGRAPHIE 2017. We aim at providing another perspective of art appreciation and by that, to make another Hong Kong artist be attended by the world.


絶えることなく受け継がれてきた日本の伝統工芸に着目した香港のヴィジュアル・アーティスト、ヤン・カレンが京都の職人たちとの交流を通じて制作したコラボレーションフォトブックがこちら。釜師、塗師、鏡師、神具指物師、畳職人、紙漉師、陶芸家らの工房に実際に出向き、周囲の風景や現場の様子、作業の工程や使用される道具などを、場の空気や物の存在感とじっくり向き合いながら丁寧に撮り下ろしています。神具に使用されるヒノキ材や天然染色のための草木、火で焼かれることで器となる土など、移ろいゆく時間や自然との調和を内包する伝統工芸の世界を、見る者に柔らかく提示するような静謐なモノクロプリントの数々。光と闇が織りなす静止した時間のなかに見出される緩やかなダイナミズム。タイトルを黒で箔押しした厚紙に手作業で糸を通した造本も美しい作品集です。テキストは中日英併記。サイン・エディションナンバー入り、700部限定。
