第206回企画展
浅葉克己個展「アサバの血肉化」

2016年01月15日(金)~2016年03月19日(土)

2016年京都dddギャラリーの幕開けを飾るのは、日本国内はもとより、世界中から信望の厚いアートディレクター、浅葉克己氏による「アサバの血肉化」展です。
日本美術の伝統と現代デザインをつなぐキーワードとして、美術史家・山下裕二氏が提唱してきた「血肉化」という概念。これにいたく共鳴した浅葉克己氏は、早速自筆の書で「血肉化」としたためました。
強烈な好奇心と向上心で古今東西、高尚なものからサブカル、ポップカルチャーまで、あらゆる事物を見聞きし咀嚼して、アサバデザインとして昇華させてしまうしなやかさの中に存在する頑なさ。
「日本美術の豊饒な養分を、ガシガシと噛み砕いて、グッと飲み込んで、内臓からしっかり吸収して、血となり肉となるように活かしてくれるデザイナーが現れてほしい」という山下氏の期待を体現する浅葉氏。文字通り血肉化されて自身のものとしたデザインの数々が、有機的に変貌しながらggg(東京)、CCGA(福島)を経て、ここ京都でまた異なる姿をあらわにします。
衰えることを知らない創造欲、しつこいくらいの継続力、レタリングと書そして卓球で鍛えた身体力をベースに生みだされるアサバデザインを、次の時代を担う若者たちに血肉化していただきたい。

The 206th Exhibition
Asaba's Assimilation: Katsumi Asaba Exhibition

January 15, 2016 - March 19, 2016

In 2016 kyoto ddd gallery kicks the new year off with "Asaba's Assimilation," a solo exhibition of works by Katsumi Asaba, an art director who today enjoys supreme renown and popularity both at home in Japan and worldwide. "Assimilation," Asaba's keyword for this show, is a concept put forward by art historian Yuji Yamashita linking Japanese art traditions with contemporary design. So taken was Asaba by Yamashita's novel approach that he lost no time creating a piece of calligraphy citing the word, which is written with three characters literally meaning "changing to flesh and blood."

Asaba is an artist whose intense curiosity and insatiable appetite for self-development fuel an interest in things old and new, Eastern and Western, everything from the noblest pursuits to sub- and pop culture. All of these he assimilates, sublimating them into his inimitable style of design with graceful suppleness infused with a contrasting streak of unbending determination.

Asaba is the embodiment of Yamashita's hopes to see the emergence of a designer who "voraciously chomps on the rich nutrients of Japanese art, gulps them down, ingests them to his core, and converts them into his own flesh and blood." The numerous designs Asaba has assimilated have gone through several organic permutations – first at ggg (Tokyo), continuing at CCGA (Fukushima), and now here, changed again, in Kyoto.

Our hope is that young artists destined to form the next generation in design will come to know Asaba's design work – work deriving from his unabated quest to create, his almost tenacious powers of continuity, and his physical robustness honed through his endeavors in lettering, calligraphy and table tennis – and then assimilate it into their own new flesh and blood.
