    Jam Session: The Ishibashi Foundation Collection×Morimura Yasumasa M’s Gift of the Sea: Auto-Mythology

    About this exhibition

    Jam Session is a joint performance by the Ishibashi Foundation Collection and a contemporary artist. For our second session, we welcome Morimura Yasumasa, who has, since 1985, when he produced a selfportrait photograph in which he had dressed himself to resemble van Gogh’s self portrait, he has continued to create “self portrait-ish works” in which he disguises himself as the person in a painting or photographーchoosing sources from diverse periods and culturesー and recreates it, adding his own interpretations. Morimura has long had a secret love of the works by Aoki Shigeru in our museum and created works inspired by Aoki’s Self Portrait (1903) and A Gift of the Sea (1904). For this Jam Session, Morimura addresses A Gift of the Sea head on. He gives shape to the history of the many changes in Japanese culture, politics, and thought since the Meiji period, when Aoki created that work, in his own Morimura-style, or M-style, A Gift of the Sea. He has elevated his ardent feelings for Aoki into a new series of works.
