Yves Klein Japon. Éditions Dilecta

Posted in painting, travel, writing on January 12th, 2023
Tags: , , , , , , ,

Yves Klein (1928–62) first traveled to Japan as a young man in 1952, motivated primarily by his interest in judo. During his 15 months abroad, Klein had numerous important creative and philosophical revelations that culminated in the launch of his artistic career upon his return to Paris.

Prepared in collaboration with the Yves Klein Archives, this volume details Klein’s relationship with Japan through nearly 150 archival documents, photographs and letters, inviting the reader on his journey from martial arts to fine art at the very beginning of his career. Along the way we learn of Klein’s important encounters with art critic Takachiyo Uemura, painter Keizo Koyama and design professor Masaki Yamaguchi. “Yves Klein Japon” provides essential insight into the origins of Klein’s oeuvre as both a groundbreaking visual artist and prolific writer whose short-lived career helped to transform postwar art.

Yasutaka Kojima’s Coming back compiles a series of photographs of cityscapes in Tokyo since 2008. Kojima’s beautiful selection of photographs, which shift effortlessly between monochrome and colour, and past and present, observe cities existing in a time during which our identity and subjectively has been somewhat lost in the urban environment, evoking a sense of evanescence. This beautiful publication arrives courtesy of the amazing Superlabo (Tokyo).

TYO-WTC. Taiji Matsue. Akaaka Art Publishing

Matsue’s message is that in a city there has only ever been and will always be development, only generation, and to this there is no alternative. Construction works have always been starting everywhere. After finishing, they start again. A city is an unceasing cycle of construction and destruction. And this in Tokyo, an amorphous place, almost entirely bereft of green, and peerless in its absence of planning. With no retraceable origin and no possibility of future completion, there is only development, ever-repeating generation. It is the bold challenge of capturing this within the depth of a limited time which has brought us TYO-WTC.
