Speaker | Yuki Okumura

From the 60s onwards, Hisachika Takahashi (b. 1940) has explored “memory” as a central theme of his artistic practice with works often made in collaboration with other artists, while also serving as assistant first to Lucio Fontana in Milan for two years and then to Robert Rauschenberg in New York for nearly 40 years. Since 2013, after discovering the artist’s work that had been almost “forgotten” behind art history, Yuki Okumura (b. 1978) has developed a long-term project with Takahashi, with exhibitions in Brussels, Liverpool, and Amsterdam, as an attempt to overlap the two artists’ identities beyond time, space, and physicality. For their latest joint exhibition titled “Hisachika Takahashi by Yuki Okumura” at Ginza Maison Hermes Le Forum, Tokyo, 2016, Okumura composed a piece of poetry by intertwining various elements from personal memories and biographies of himself, Takahashi, and Gordon Matta-Clark (who was a very good friend of his), with sunset as a common bond. In this event, Okumura will present a Chinese version of the poem, where you re-encounter art-historical figures as flesh-and-blood individuals, introducing episodes and images from its back-stories and revealing its undercurrent of mortality,
