Art As It Is: Expression from the Obscure
あるがままのアート─人知れず表現し続けるものたち─

This exhibition of outsider art features artists and their expressions created freely according to their own creative impulses without adherence to art traditions and regardless of their educational backgrounds or statuses of disability. The venue at the University Art Museum, Tokyo University of the Arts consists of two exhibition rooms, both with a ceiling height of 5.0 m. The first exhibition room is a boxlike space with a rectangular floor plan, and the second exhibition space is a irregularly-shaped space with a partial drop ceiling and thick round columns. The artworks were sorted into both rooms based on the size and the form of expression. In the first exhibition room, two boxes 3.6m-high were placed and larger artworks were displayed inside and outside the boxes. In the second room, movable walls were used to support a roof installed at a height of 2.5m to create a smaller space with an intimate atmosphere and display delicate artworks there. While each exhibition room uses a different method of segmentation, both are designed to create a sense of unity in the exhibition space by allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the artworks one by one while offering them a glimpse of other artworks at the same time.

美術の伝統や教育、障害の有無に関わらず、自由で自身の衝動のままに制作される表現(アウトサイダー・アート)と表現者の展覧会。会場は東京藝術大学大学美術館のふたつの展示室で、ともに5mの天井高さがあるが、第一展示室は長方形平面を持つ矩形の空間で、第二展示室は一部天井が下がっていたり太い丸柱がある変形した空間となっている。そこへサイズや表現方法をもとに作品を振り分けた。第一展示室には3.6m高さのふたつの箱を置いて、その中と外に大きめの作品を展示した。第二展示室は可動壁を支持体として高さ2.5mの位置に屋根を掛け、親密な空間サイズにしたうえで繊細な作品を展示した。展示室ごとに異なる分節の方法を用いているが、どちらも、ひとつづつの作品の鑑賞に没入できる一方で、ふいに別の作品が視界に入ることで展示空間としての一体感が生まれるような構成となっている。
