Hisanori Mae: The insight for ordeal in life –the true existence in the dim

Dear my sake friends,

I’m going to serve sake and shochu at the exhibition of the artist Hisanori Mae at ISE CULTURAL FOUNDATION in Soho NY on April 29th. It’s not “charity” event, but enjoying Japanese art, having sake are also huge support for Japan I believe. Please stop by!
Hope to see you all.

ISE Cultural Foundation is pleased to present solo exhibition “Hisanori Mae: The insight for ordeal in life –the true existence in the dim” curated by Fumiaki Mae.

Since the ancient time in Japan, there is a symbolic expression which shows Japanese aesthetics called “In’ei Raisan” or “In Praise of Shadows”(Japanese author, Jun’ichiro Tanizaki used this word for his book title in1933) This word represents that the beauty of Japanese traditional art forms such as calligraphy, painting or vessel is emphasized in the dim. It is not only suggesting a way to enjoy magnificence of art, but it may be indicating how you should confront “THINGS” to capture the essence that is behind the phenomenon.
When people are detached and faced the enormous nature in front of them, they might lose their egos and discover the true existence of the world. As the massive earthquake and tsunami struck Japan just recently, the mightiness of Mother Nature sometimes brings us distress, sadness, and melancholy. However, the same Mother Nature that causes disaster also conveys a great deal of comfort to us. The plight of nature might teach us “HOPE” in midst of darkness as well.

Hisanori Mae, artist in this exhibition, confronts Mother Nature everyday and with his unique techniques he keeps painting “Despair” and “Comfort” in our lives. In this exhibition, the artwork is not displayed under the conventional shinny light, but it is showed under the “In’ei” or “dim”. The viewers use the individual candlestick type light on their hands to light up the paintings. By confronting the artwork quietly and deeply in the dim with a small light on your hand, we hope that viewers might be reminded of things forgotten in this modern savage time and find peace and comfort in their lives again.

This exhibition is not meant to be a representation of traditional Japanese aesthetics. It is a challenge to bring more contemporary way to present universalistic artistic quality.

*The individual lights that are used in this exhibition are similar to the Japanese traditional candles made with LED (first-ever in Japan).

山崎拓巳著『shift』発売記念セミナーin NEW YORK!!

15万部売れた「やる気のスイッチ」「気くばりのツボ」で大人気のビジネス本作家 山崎拓巳氏の初めてのNYトークショーが5月6日開催されます!

ご縁あって彼とお友達になりましたが、最初は、「なんなんだろうこのノリの軽い変な人は、、」と。笑

でもこの方、なんだかすっごい軽いノリで仕事に対して、人間関係に対して、「ちょっと考え方を変えるだけでできそうなこと」の積み重ねで、今や売れっ子ビジネス本作家のヒルズ族。爆

現在、年間200本のセミナーをこなす引っ張りだこの大先生です。

正直、自己啓発、、と言われるとちょっと引いてしまう私ですが、彼の軽〜いノリはあまりそんな感じはしません。

もしお時間ありましたら、あまり気負いせず、チズコの友達の作家先生のトークショーという気分で遊びに行って下さい☆

このトークショーがきっかけで、もしかしたらあなたもヒルズ族になれるかも!?

※残念ながら私は当日ほかのイベントでお酒をサーブしているので会場にはいませんが、応援しています!
