ミラノ郊外で児童書のイラストレーターとして長年活躍してきたマッシモ・アルファイオリ(Massimo Alfaioli)氏が、子ども達に親しまれてきた数々の作品とはかなり趣の異なっている最近の作品群や、趣味である園芸と香水について語ってくれた。
インタヴュアーを務めてくれたのは、ホノルル・ビエンナーレの共同創立者であり医学博士でもあるコーアン・ジェフ・ベイサ(Kóan Jeff Baysa)氏。ベイサ氏は、ロサンゼルスにあるインスティチュート・オブ・アート アンド オルファクション(The Institute for Art and Olfaction)の主任キューレーターを務める嗅覚芸術の権威でもある。
現代アートの創作現場では、騒音としか思えない大音量の音楽の中でアーティストが作品の制作に没頭する様にしばしば出会うが、アルファイオリ氏のスタジオではその日の制作に合った音楽と香水が気分を高めることに不可欠であると語っていることが興味深い。
五感が一体になったアートというものが、少しづつ増えてきている今日この頃。視覚美術が専門とは云え、嗅覚が制作環境作りに大きな役割を持っているというのは嬉しいことだ。

Heroe is the title of a solo exhibition by French artist CAMILLE BLATRIX currently on view at Wattis Institute in San Francisco. The presentation is featuring a series of minimal sculptures that appear familiar and timeless thanks to a highly precise manufacture. As with much of his previous works, the meaning of BLATRIX‘s objects is dissolved into a self-contained abstraction and is ascribed to the viewer’s narrative impulse.

Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi has used wire to recreate an early Christian church on an archaeological site in Siponto, a port town in southern Italy. The huge installation is located on the site of a church built in the Roman settlement between the 11th and 12th centuries, but deserted following earthquakes in the 13th century. Tresoldi, who specialises in large-scale wire sculptures, has previously created both architectural and figurative pieces for venues including the British art and music festival Secret Garden Party. But this sculpture will remain in place indefinitely.
