カサセンペーレの日本初個展となる本展では、作家自身が「骨」と呼ぶ小さな陶片の集合体や、様々な作品を削り出した後の欠片を一つの作品として再構成した作品などを展示致します。カサセンペーレは、ロンドンに活動拠点を置きながらも、故郷であるチリで採れた土を使用しています。銅の輸出大国であるチリでは、採掘により多くの鉱山が荒廃。深刻な環境破壊を引き起こしており、採掘後の破棄された土を用いたこれらの作品は、独特の密度と重みを持つのです。また本展は、1992年ハラ ミュージアム アークにて開催の「チリ現代美術展」に出展以来、作家にとって日本における25年ぶりの展示となります。この貴重な機会に是非ご高覧下さい。


フェルナンド・カサセンペーレは1958年サンティアゴ生まれ。1980年代にバルセロナにて陶芸と彫刻を学び、1986年チリに帰国。1997年にロンドンに拠点を移した後は「Falla Ideologico」(サンティアゴ現代美術館、2012年)をはじめとして、世界各地で精力的に個展を開催。2012年のロンドンオリンピックに合わせて開催された個展「Out of Sync」では、粘土で作られた約1万本の花をサマセット・ハウスの中庭に展示し、大きな話題を呼びました。また、昨年にはサンティアゴのチリ国立美術館にて大規模な個展「Mi Andadura」を開催し、好評を博しました。作品は、ヴィクトリア・アンド・アルバート博物館やチリ国立美術館、ボストン美術館、ハーバード大学美術館などに収蔵されています。

Fernando Casasempere is Chilean artist based in London. His work is known as sculpture that pursues the possibilities of the ceramic medium: beautiful and organic forms, flowing marble patterns, and sculptures with cracks and hollows. Growing up in Santiago and being absorbed by its pre-Colombian art, craft, and archaeological remains, Casasempere has re-interpreted Land Art in the context of contemporary art, and has attempted to develop a new form of sculpture. He is also strongly concerned with environmental issues and has made large-scale, outdoor installations taking inspiration from Latin American landscapes such as those of north Chile. Based on his profound knowledge of nature, ecological systems, and geography, his work has associations with Land Art such as the work of Robert Smithson and Richard Long. Life in a foreign country for 20 years has had a large impact on his practice as well. Casasempere states as follows: “Being in a open environment such as the UK, I have been able to see Latin American art or aspects more artistic from multiple points of view, and my curiosity and interest towards my own work has increased.”

This is the Casasempere’s first solo exhibition in Japan and features large scale sculpture with a group of ceramic pieces. The artist has created multiple small elements that the artist calls “bones”, as well as a work of re-composed fragments that are left behind after paring off other works. Even though he is working in London, Casasempere uses clay from his Chilean homeland. A large exporter of copper, Chile has many ruined mines that are causing serious environmental destruction. These works, created with clay that has been discarded after mining, thus have a special density and presence. This is his first exhibition in 25 years in Japan since his work was included in “CHILE TODAY” at Hara Museum ARC in 1992.


Fernando Casasempere was born in Santiago in 1958. He studied ceramic and sculpture in Barcelona in the 1980s, and returned to Chile in 1986. After moving to London in 1997 he has had numerous solo exhibitions worldwide, such as “Falla Ideologico” (Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, 2012). In his solo exhibition “Out of Sync”, held in conjunction with the London Olympics in 2012, he exhibited approximately 10,000 clay flowers in the courtyard of Somerset House and received wide acclaim. He also held a solo exhibition “Mi Andadura” at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Santiago last year. His work is included in the public collections of institutions including the Victoria & Albert Museum, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Harvard Art Museums and others.

Casasempere is also holding a concurrent solo exhibition at POST, a bookshop in Ebisu from March 11 to April 2nd.
