About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Nadja Solari (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. nibble, nibble, gnaw is a bilingual (Japanese/English) artist book / catalogue for an exhibition of the Swiss artist Nadja Solari at The Container gallery in Tokyo.The exhibition, to celebrate the centenary of the Dada movement, in partnership with the Switzerland embassy in Japan, is a spatial mixed-media installation, constructing a connection between the contemporary digital-age bot-generated spam emails and Sound Poetry. Inspired by the subject lines of such emails, which are often a comical neologism that tries to outsmart the spam filtering programmes to avoid interception, is akin to Sound Poetry, and used as the backbone of this exhibition. During this process these subject lines and emails defunct semantic meaning and create a new language, random and chaotic, reminiscent of the Dadaists’ writings – the generated poetry of our current digital and virtual realities. The result is similar to early 20th century poetry that many Dadaists generated through manual techniques, such as Automatism and chance, currently, replaced by digitally automated systems.The exhibition at The Container is a loose conglomerate of everyday objects, each with a different kind of circuit/stream/flow, or a repeated mechanism, to raise issues relating to the boundaries between the private and public. The objects are adorned with over-sized heart-shaped gingerbread biscuits, bearing bot-generated spam messages lifted from actual spam emails. The iconography is deeply influenced by advertising, consumerism, slogans, and catchphrases we habitually encounter in our everyday lives, with a dose of associations taken from fairytales’ symbolism and allegory. This publication is a mood map of associative imagery and keywords the artist generated whilst developing this exhibition, and it showcases the conceptual development process of the exhibition. The publication also sees an especially commissioned short story, a contemporary fairytale, written by the young author Shawn Mehrens, The Buried Princess, inspired by keywords and imagery contributed by Solari. The story is also accompanied by an Instagram account with the username theburiedprincess, with images from this publication and posts from "Helen", the main character of the story, facilitated by Nadja Solari.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Surrogate Structures is an exhibition catalogue for the British artist s, Sam Stocker, installation at The Container, Tokyo. It is the 14th catalogue in a series published by the gallery to archive and promote artists in Japan and abroad. The catalogue showcases writings by the gallery director, Shai Ohayon, and Tokyo-based writer/artist James Jack, as well as notes by Sam Stocker. The publication chronicles Stocker s, a recent PhD graduate of Tokyo University of the Arts (Geidai) graduate, art creating process for his site-specific life-size sculptural installation at The Container. Responding to a specific site is a pivotal element in Stocker s works where historical and geographical findings are dressed in highly personal associative events, memories, and thoughts. Slowly, through a journey of discovery that Stocker consciously undertakes, shapes and concepts emerge and grow, taking on a life of their own to piece together a new piece of art. Although at first look many of his structures seem untidy, they present keen attention to detail and high aesthetic accuracy. The shapes and structures are convincingly premeditated, and enable the viewers to experience the installations both physically and psychologically. Much of Stocker s process is collecting materials and making connections, some sort of a cerebral game, in efforts to find the work. Thereafter, production starts, fitting in all of the components together, like a puzzle. Although the final pieces are exhaustively planned, they are still also tentative and come to life with the instinctive input of the artist. Stocker does not seek to justify his works or give them a purpose. It is art for art s sake-terribly subjective and pointless, but it is this purism that is fundamental in the way Stocker defines his role as an artist. He seeks to create bits of his own world, live his own art, surrounds himself with it, in an endeavor to present his version of truth through his art making. Sam Stocker s installation at The Container, Surrogate Structures, such as in his previous works, is inspired by research and visits the artist conducted to the area. One such location that influenced the artist s work for the exhibition is the existence of a Fujizuka just behind the location of the gallery. Fujizuka are small mounds, replicas representing Mount Fuji, found in and around Tokyo. These surrogates became popular during the Edo period to enable pilgrims who could not climb Mount Fuji to experience the ten stations of the mountain right to the summit. The irony of the concept intrigues the artist, but also the nurturing nature of Fujizuka, comforting the needy like a womb, a vessel, a box.

The space opened in March 2011 to create a site that encourages people to engage with art installations and works, where the emphasis is on curation and the accessibility of contemporary art and ideas to the general public.

Fujizuka are small mounds, replicas representing Mount Fuji, found in and around Tokyo. These surrogates became popular during the Edo period to enable pilgrims who could not climb Mount Fuji to experience the ten stations of the mountain right to the summit. The irony of the concept intrigues the artist, but also the nurturing nature of Fujizuka, comforting the needy like a womb, a vessel, a box. The Container is a contemporary exhibition space in Nakameguro, Tokyo. The space opened in March 2011 to create a site that encourages people to engage with art installations and works, where the emphasis is on curation and the accessibility of contemporary art and ideas to the general public. As the name suggests, the physical space is no more than a constructed shipping container (485x180x177cm), made to measurements of old Japanese shipping containers, housed inside Bross hair salon, in one of Tokyo s most loved and trendy neighbourhoods. The Container invites Japanese and international artists to make site-specifc installations four times a year. Each installation remains on view to the public for two-and-a- half months. Since 2013, The Container also started to publish full-colour, bilingual (Jap/Eng) exhibition catalogues, available online and at the gallery. The space receives extensive international coverage, including ArtAsiaPacific, Artforum, Hyperallergic, Glass Magazine, Art Antiques Magazine, Dazed Confused, Blouin Artinfo, Art-iT, Bijutsu-Techo/BT, NHK, Tokyo Art Beat, The Japan Times, and The Sunday Times, travel guides and in-flight magazines, to mention only a few.
