荒木经惟作为代表日本的摄影艺术家,在全世界一直受到极高的评价。因其对摄影艺术无限的热情与信念,荒木经惟一次又一次挑战着摄影表现艺术的极限,因而也被人们称为“摄影狂人”。

我们一直惊叹于荒木先生作为独立艺术家的勇气与行为。长期以来,媒体上对其冠以“情色摄影大师”的称号,遮蔽了他作为摄影艺术家所具有的敏锐而又感性的一面。1971年,作为摄影艺术家身份的起点,荒木经惟自行编辑出版的《感伤之旅》,这也标志了他的“私写真”摄影之路的开启。这部作品反映出了荒木先生作为艺术表现者的强烈意识,并作为超越时代界限的“私小说”回荡在我们心中,成为荒木先生广受赞誉并且有着深远影响的作品。

本次展览展出的《感伤之旅》、《冬之旅》、《春之旅》三个系列,用黑白影像记录下荒木先生与妻子阳子的新婚之旅、两人婚后生活的点滴,以及阳子和爱猫先后离世的时光,真挚动人。而《堕乐园》系列的创作几乎与日本2011年大地震同时,荒木经惟将家里的阳台布置成拍摄场地,在黑色的背景下,用陶瓷娃娃、恐龙模型和花试图重现一个乐园,然而他也清晰地意识到,“这终究不能变成一个完完全全的乐园。落入了阴间的世界,因此我称之为——堕乐园。”

年逾古稀的荒木先生,仍然不断地进行着艺术的创作。他通过艺术家的眼睛和特有的存在感,表达着他对世界的深刻洞察。他的艺术能量是如此的惊人!尽管此次展览不能全方位展现荒木先生的所有艺术实践。但我们衷心希望,能借此良机,让更多人欣赏到荒木先生丰富的艺术世界,使大家对荒木先生本人和作品更加关注和理解。

此外,本次展览要特别感谢王西野先生的谷仓当代影像馆,为此次展出提供了《感伤之旅》、《冬之旅》、《春之旅》系列的珍贵藏品;同时我们也感谢深受荒木先生信任的策展人本尾久子女士。这次展览的成功举办,离不开二位的大力支持与协助。

Nobuyoshi Araki is a representative Japanese photographer who has long been globally recognized for his work. With his infinite passion and faith, Araki has been dubbed “the madman of photography” for his reputation of challenging the limits of the medium again and again.

We have always been admiring Araki’s courageous spirit as an independent artist. Araki has long been called “erotic photography master” by media which obscured his penetration and sensitivity. In 1971, Araki edited and privately published Sentimental Journey as his origin as a photographer which also represented his career in photography. This series reflects Araki’s strong sense of expressive power, which renders a personal narrative timelessly and resonates in our hearts. It has become Araki’s most respected and influential body of work.

This exhibition, with series Sentimental Journey, Winter Journey, and Spring Journey, presents the stories of the honeymoon of Araki and his wife Yoko, moments of their married life till the time Yoko and their pet cat’s passing away. These monochromatic photographs are sincere and touching. The creation of Decadence in Paradise was near the same time when the tragedy of the earthquake-tsunami struck Japan in 2011. Araki turned balcony of his apartment into a photo studio. Against a black backdrop, he juxtaposed antique dolls, monster puppets, and flowers, so as to duplicate a garden of paradise. But he realized clearly, “but it could not turn out to be a garden of paradise. It had fallen into the world of darkness. Thus, I call it Decadence in Paradise.”

Araki, even though over 70 years old, still keeps on creating his own art. We are increasingly impressed by his artistic ability to express his unique existence and his insight on the world to achieve his own individual articulation of feeling. His artistic energy is so amazing. Although this exhibition is by no means entirely comprehensive, it is our sincere hope to make more people appreciate Araki’s plentiful art world and bring about greater awareness and understanding of Araki and his works.

We would like to thank Mr. Wang Xiye and his Gucang Contemporary Image Center, who provided original works of Sentimental Journey, Winter Journey, and Spring Journey for the exhibition, as well as the curator Ms. Hisako Motto, whom Araki trusts deeply and fully. This exhibition couldn’t have come to fruition without the whole-hearted support and assistance of these two individuals.
