    本作は、2018年3月AAA2018ファイナリスト展の開催期間中、日本・中国・シンガポールを拠点に活動するキュレーターらで構成された最終審査により大賞に選出されました。審査会では、日本を拠点に活動をしているアーティストをアジア圏のアートシーンに紹介すること、また同時代に対して批評的な視点があること、自らの関心に合わせて表現形式や媒体を自由に選択しながら芸術の可能性を探っていること、さらに、与えられた展示空間をそれらに従って構成できることを軸に作品の評価が行われました。白熱した審査会を経て、審査員の一人である秋元雄史氏は、小金沢健人の受賞理由について次のような言葉を寄せています。

    「ドイツに長く住んで、昨年広島県の尾道市に戻ってきたとのことですが、外壁に展示している尾道の「山名さん」を撮ったドキュメンタリーフィルムがユーモラスに作品化されていました。そのほかに回転するカメラのフレームを構成するようにして作った2つの映像インスタレーションが展示空間内にあり、3つそれぞれベクトルの違う作品が展示されているように見えるのですが、いずれも「動き続ける」というキーワードが横断的に貫いていて、キネティックな作品を作り続けてきた小金沢さんの世界の見方と作品の完成度がうまく一つの空間にまとまっていたように思います。」
(AAA2018公式カタログより抜粋)

  本作の展示が、2018 ART021 上海 Contemporary Art Fairに来場するアートコレクターやキュレーター、アーティスト、アートファンに向けて、本アワードの初回大賞受賞者の作品を紹介するとともに、アジアという複雑で多様なものに対して新たな視点や議論を提案し、アジアのアート界を活性化する一助となることを願っています。

  At 2018 ART021 SHANGHAI Contemporary Art Fair, Art Tokyo Association will exhibit Collapsing new buildings by Takehito Koganezawa, who won the Grand Prize at the Asian Art Award 2018 supported by Warehouse TERRADA (organized by Art Tokyo Association with Warehouse TERRADA as special sponsor).
The Asian Art Award supported by Warehouse TERRADA is a new contemporary art award estab-lished in 2017 to provide assistance for emerging artists in Japan with exciting international prospects in Asia and beyond. The award had four finalists in the 2018 edition, selected by a panel of fivecurators. These finalists created new work, which were shown at the award exhibition at TERRADA ART COMPLEX, Tokyo in March 2018. A jury comprising art specialists from China, Singapore and Japan then conducted a final assessment of the exhibited works. As a result of the judging, Takehito Koganezawa was awarded the Grand Prize for the installa-tion, which consists of Collapsing new buildings, Drawing in Pursuit (circle) and Excerpts from “Himejiya,” “The way to a bar called Hokuriku,” “Inside Himejiya,” and “Mr. Yamana”.

  The final judging process examined the exhibits from the perspectives of introducing artists based in Japan within the Asian art scene, the expression of and critical approaches to social and cultural conditions in Japan, and the fresh viewpoints and insights they presented not only about Japan but also broader Asian contexts. One of the members of the award jury, Yuji Akimoto, explained the reason Koganezawa was selected over the other finalists.

“THaving returned to Onomichi in Hiroshima Prefecture last year after living in Germany for a long time, the artist exhibited on the outer wall of the space a humorous work in the form of a documentary film about a certain person in Onomichi, alongside an installation inside with two videos—Drawing in Pursuit and Collapsing new buildings—that comprised rotating camera frames. Each of the three works seems to have its own vector, though penetrating through them all is the key idea of constant movement, while the perception of the world by this artist who has continued to make kinetic works as well as the level of perfection achieved in his work adroitly united them into a single space. ” (Excerpt from the Asian Art Award 2017 supported by Warehouse TERRADA official catalogue)

Alongside introducing the work of the winner of the Grand Prize to art collectors, curators, artists, and art lovers attending ART021 Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair, Art Tokyo Association aims to propose new perspectives and debate about the complex and diverse region that is Asia in order to help energize its art world.
