2D Printers/2017/07/15-09/18

2D Printers
Tochigi Prefectural Museum of Fine Arts tried to show the relationship and difference between scientific thoughts and fine art, through exhibitions such as “Pictorial Evolution of Pictures”(2011) and”Thermodynamics of the Sun”(2014).
This exhibition “2D Printers” tries to focus on “utility”. Since seventeenth century when the terminology “fine art” was born scientists looked up art, because art was able to display the gloriousness of the kings and government. Art used to have “utility”.
But from nineteenth century art wanted to abandon such utility to let art itself look autonomous. People in modern world believe in the myth which tells us art has no utility. On the other hand science displaying utility developed hand in hand with technics, and became technology.
The art has criticism. It used to point criticism toward art itself. Technology never has criticism. Some contemporary artists point criticism not art itself but society including monstrous technology. We would like to try to call this criticism of art “utility”, comparing the handworks with mechanical works.
