Chloe Paré & Theodor Maier
Obaachan no kami

Studio GROSS
5-14-13 Higashiogu, Arakawa-Ku, 116-0012 Tokyo, Japan

August 28 – September 1, 2021
1 pm – 7 pm

In the exhibition Obaachan no kami, at Studio GROSS, Chloe Paré and Theodor Maier present their collaborative artists‘ book Gravestone. The book refers to gravestones in the stores alongside the borders of Tokyo’s cemeteries. Those unassigned and blank cenotaphs, with simple and clear geometric outlines, resemble minimalist sculptures. Gravestone is light and transportable, an anti-monument that underlines constant transition and the noise of the empty page.

Gravestone will be presented at Cincinnati Art Book Fair August 21-22

Chloe Paré (b.1996, Athens, Greece) is a visual artist based in Tokyo, Japan. In her praxis, she is experimenting on how interactivity integrates into contemporary sculpture through the materiality and ephemerality of paper. Currently, she is a Research Student at Tokyo University of the Arts under the Japanese Government Scholarship. Paré has studied sculpture in the Athens School of Fine Arts, Greece and Weissensee Kunsthochschule Berlin, Germany. She has realized numerous artistic workshops and solo installations and has presented her work in group exhibitions in Greece, Germany and Japan.

Theodor Maier (b. 1989 in Schwaz, Austria) studied Comparative Literature at the University of Vienna and Maynooth University, Ireland, and Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and the Tokyo University of the Arts. In various media, his work is concerned with language and translation.

スタジオグロスで開催される展覧会「おばあちゃんのかみ」では、クロエ・パレとテオドール・マイヤーが共同で制作したアーティストブック「墓石」を展示します。この本は、東京の墓地の境界線上にある店舗の墓石を参照しています。シンプルで明確な幾何学的アウトラインを持つ、指定されていない空白の慰霊碑は、ミニマリストの彫刻のようです。「墓石」は軽くて持ち運び可能であり、絶え間ない移行と空のページのノイズを強調するアンチモニュメントです。

クロエ・パレ(1996年、ギリシャ・アテネ生まれ)は、東京を拠点に活動するビジュアルアーティストで、紙の素材感や儚さを活かしたインタラクティブな表現を現代彫刻に取り入れる試みを行っています。現在、国費留学生として東京藝術大学に在籍しており、ギリシャのアテネ美術学校とドイツのベルリン・ヴァイセンゼー美術学校で彫刻を学びました。数々の芸術的なワークショップやソロ・インスタレーションを実現し、ギリシャ、ドイツ、日本のグループ展で作品を発表してきました。

テオドール・マイヤー(1989 年、オーストリア・シュワルツ生まれ)は、ウィーン大学とアイルランドのメイヌース大学で比較文学を、ウィーン美術アカデミーと東京藝術大学で美術を学びました。様々なメディアで、言語と翻訳をテーマにした作品を発表しています。
