作家コメント

娯楽と戦争の間」と名付けられた一連の絵画は、主にロシアのウクライナ侵攻と第三次世界大戦への導入にますます似ている世界的緊張の前に完成されたため、一種の予言的絵画と言えます。一方ではアプリ、ビデオゲーム、人工知能が社会を形成し、子供たちを教育している一方で、他方ではそれが徐々に耐え難いアナログで物理的な現実となりつつあります。この状態は、2つの極端なものが1つのポイントに融合することに影響し、娯楽と戦争というセンセーショナルなもので私たちの時代を形成しているのです。まさに、この一連の絵画が提示しているのは、こうした問題なのです。 制作しているとき、理性的というより直感的に、絵の中のモチーフを押し付けるような不安を感じていました。Apps Store」という絵から始まり、「Patriot2」という絵で終わります。Apps Store」では、若い戦士の少年が現実から逃避するために仮想現実を見つけ、戦時中に出現した「Patriot 2」では、世界貿易センターへの攻撃、チョルノブイリ原発事故後の建物の粉々な跡、そしてウクライナ戦争の飛行機やプロパガンダをコラージュした断片を描いているのです。

The series of paintings named ‘Between entertainment and war’ is a sort of prophetic painting because these paintings were mainly completed before the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the global tension that increasingly resembles the introduction to World War III. While on the one side the app, video games and artificial intelligence are shaping society and educating our children, on the other side it is becoming progressively intolerable, analog, physical reality. This condition affects the merge of two extremes into a single point that shapes our time with its sensationalism, which is entertainment and war. Precisely these problems this cycle of paintings is presenting.  When I was working on them, more intuitively than rationally, I felt the anxiety that imposed the motifs in the paintings. It all started with a painting ‘Apps Store’ and it all ends with a painting ‘Patriot2’. In the painting ‘Apps Store’, a young warrior boy finds his escape from reality in virtual reality, because this physical one has been eluding for a long time, and in the image of Patriot 2 that emerged in wartime we see collage segments of the attack on the World Trade Center, the shattered remains of a building after the Chornobyl nuclear disaster, as well as planes and propaganda of the war in Ukraine.

ギャラリーコメント

ワーニャ展は昨年に引き続きの2回目の個展です。前回は2020年のオリンピックイヤーに開催を予定していましたが、コロナ禍で一年遅れて昨年「ゲームズ・オブ・スローンズ」展を開催しました。今年は日本セルビア友好140年記念を迎え「娯楽と戦争の間」展を開催する運びとなりました。前回、今回とも大国の脅威と娯楽脅威との怪しい関係を描いています。今回の「娯楽と戦争の間」は、今のウクライナの戦争を予感しているようです。そして、子供たちも知らず知らずのうちにこのゲーム(娯楽)から人間が自然、人間、社会を支配する、強制的手段である、暴力、戦争へと忍び寄る、今の世の中の不安を表しています。

The Vanya exhibition is our second solo exhibition, following last year's. The previous exhibition was scheduled to be held in the Olympic year of 2020, but due to the Corona Disaster, the "Games of Thrones" exhibition was held a year later last year. This year, in celebration of 140 years of friendship between Japan and Serbia, we will hold the "Between Entertainment and War" exhibition. Both the previous and current exhibitions depict the dubious relationship between the threat of great powers and the threat of entertainment. This time "Between Entertainment and War" seems to foreshadow the current war in Ukraine. And the children also unknowingly represent the anxiety of today's world, which is creeping from this game (entertainment) to violence and war, which are coercive means by which man controls nature, man and society.
