design: BEN ( Benjamin Vautier )
It is said ‘Autumn is for Art’ in Japan. Hot summer has finally gone and people start to read again and go to museums. It was really too hot this summer to think – well, I have just experienced two weeks of it, and it was enough.
Anyway, I am back on this blog and featuring stamps by Benjamin Vautier, known as Ben is one of Fluxus artists. He has a funky website, but did not tell me about his stamps at all ( my French problem ), I found the issue year finally on French wikipedia! These stamps remind me an installation at Ecole d’art à Blois completed in 1995, named ‘Mur des mots’.
I am having my first solo exhibition at Rocket Gallery in East London from 18 September and these stamps express my current feeling as well.
この秋、London Design Festival時期に東ロンドンのRocket Galleryにて初めての個展を開くことになり、やっと今週、招待状を送ります。この2枚の切手は、わたしの今の心情をよく表現してくれています。
