SHIRO KURAMATA AND HIROSHI SUGIMOTO: WORKS FROM THE ABSENT PAST. Wright, New York, 2015. Distributed by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 44 pp. 27 x 20 cm. ISBN 9780990495598 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Selected objects by Shiro Kuramata, one of Japan's most important 20th-century furniture designers, is elegantly presented together with a suite of photographs by Hiroshi Sugimoto in this small but precious auction catalog. The pairing, including work from two of Kuramata's most important commissions -- Esprit House and Laputa Restaurant -- and seven of Sugimoto's Seascapes, highlights the artists' aesthetic common ground. Each artist explored the temporal nature of light and time's passage through his work. Kuramata was known for his use of industrial materials such as wire steel mesh and Lucite in his furnishings while Sugimoto, who was influenced by Duchamp, Dada and Surrealism, considers his photographs as a kind of time capsule, capturing the transience of life. A uniquely elegant publication celebrating two of the most creative minds of the 20th century, designed in collaboration with Tamotsu Yagi.
