記憶と空間の造形 イタリア現代陶芸の巨匠 ニーノ・カルーソ
Nino Caruso (1928–2017) dominated the field of Italian ceramics throughout the 20th century. His work dealt with themes like memory and mythology; he even experimented with ancient ceramic techniques. Much of his most famous work includes sculptures that evoked ancient civilizations and artifacts like weapons and sarcophagi. He later became known for pieces that combined ancient ceramic techniques with contemporary architectural designs. Caruso’s work eventually became highly regarded worldwide, including in Japan, where he studied Asian raku ware techniques for some time—yet, this is his first retrospective here. 92 of his most significant works will be featured in addition to documents such as original sketches.
