Exhibition of Contemporary OGATSU Inkstone

震災以後の雄勝硯の新作を若手デザイナー7人に依頼して、新たに製作し、展示会を開催します。

文化は往々にして、多くの災害や、戦争を乗り越えることにより新たな進展があるものです。日本の硯の90%を作っていた宮城県の雄勝の硯工房が、東北大震災の津波により全て流されてしまいました。この現実を機に、新たな日本の硯の形と、文字を通して行う、情報と意味の伝達方法を再考し、硯の位置づけを再興すべく、我々は行動を起こしました。

歴史的に、日本の硯は中国製の硯を手本にして、漢字を書くことを基本にした硯を追求してきました。しかし、日本の文字文化は漢字にはとらわれずに発展してきました。この機に、ひらがな、カタカナを含む日本の文字文化を再考し、その表現手段としての日本の書の表現を可能にする現代の硯を再生することを考えました。

道具であるが、道具を超えた存在である硯。文字であるが、文字の意味性の表現手段を超えた日本の書道。意味性ニュアンスの伝達に長けた日本人の英知の結晶としての硯、筆、和紙、墨。今後の書道を形成する大きなきっかけになり、雄勝の硯の再興になるような動きを始めることができれば本望です。日本の硯再生を期して。
