Concert Mahler Chamber Orchestra & Mitsuko Uchida

Mahler Chamber Orchestra – Mitsuko Uchida piano, conductor

Programme

Piano Concerto no. 19, KV 459 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
3 Stücke (Lyrische Suite) Alban Berg
Piano Concerto no. 20, KV 466 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Hearing the famous Japanese pianist Mitsuko Uchida play is always a pleasure. Her sensitive musicality, her rigour and her excellent knowledge of Mozart’s work, culminating in several high-flying and award-winning recordings, have sealed her reputation as a premiere interpreter of the Viennese composer’s piano music. Her presence is so vivid and so familiar – she has been performing in some of the world’s leading concert halls for over 40 years – that she has almost become part of our musical landscape. It’s as if she’s always been there. She will perform two of Mozart’s best-known compositions, while conducting the Mahler Chamber Orchestra from behind the piano. Engaging in refined musical dialogue with Uchida is this magnificent ensemble, which was founded 20 years ago by Claudio Abbado.

Exhibition
190210_pringmaking
A new wave of Japanese printmaking

This exhibition focuses on Japanese young contemporary printmakers: seven artists who studied at Musashino Art University in Tokyo and continued working as artists after their graduation. Their works, even if different, coincide in their way of struggle and finding the essence of expression in the process through printmaking (drawing, using layers, printing etc…), using various techniques (Intaglio, lithograph, woodcut and silkscreen). This means that elements of printmaking process become an essential part in the creation of their artwork. In their work, you can see the presence of nature, climate humidity, the change of seasons or a desire for the inner picturesque, which may be related to Japanese introverted personality.

The title “New wave of Japanese printmaking” is inspired by “The great wave of Kanagawa” which is one of the most famous works from Hokusai. This image has become one of the most recurrent when referring to Japanese printmaking. However, Japanese printmaking has changed and received influences from other cultures and movements making it evolve at the same time that uses the essence of its history as a background. This title refers to constant movement and how Japanese printmaking hasn’t stayed stocked into the past and has become something alive that renews itself with “new waves” of artists who incorporate new elements into the existing base culture. It would be great if this will be the answer to the question of what contemporary Japanese printmaking is.

Exhibition Voice and Sound Waves
The Japanese Scene WITH YUKIO FUJIMOTO, ATSUSHI NISHIJIMA, Collective SOFTPAD (TAKUYA MINAMI, ICHIRO AWAZU, HAJIME TAKEUCHI, HIROSHI TOYAMA), MAMORU AND LYOTA YAGI.


Felix Frachon Gallery gives “carte blanche” in “LE 26 BY” to Anne-Laure Chamboisier, an art historian and a curator who has been conducting researches on artists working with sound and music in Japan for the past 4 years.
“Le 26BY” is an independent cultural platform located in a beautiful Brussels house, created by Félix Frachon Gallery, a gallery established in Brussels in 2016 by art collector Félix Frachon, engaged in introducing mostly non-european artists developing multidisciplinary practices.
This exhibition invites the public to live a sensory experience through the interactive manipulation of sculptural objects and the listening to a variety of sounds. The diversity of the mediums of this exhibition - sculpture, installation, drawings, videos, witnesses the great quality and plurality of Japanese contemporary creation, through the eyes of three generations of artists. This exhibition offers to eight of the most important artists in Japan today, a significant visibility in Europe. Among them, Yukio Fujimoto is one of the pioneer figures of contemporary creation in Japan. In the 1970s, he focused mainly on composition and electronic performance and, in the mid-1980s, he began to produce sound objects. Having close artistic relationships with Atsushi Nishijima, the Softpad collective and Yagi Lyota, the scenography of the central space of the exhibition is the result of a collaboration, creating a subtle dialogue between their works. These artists have been exhibited in prestigious museums, such as The National Museum in Osaka, the Museum of Modern Art in Shiga or National Center of Art in Tokyo, among others.
Mamoru, a very talented emerging artist, occupies another space with an extremely poetic video installation where text, image and sound invite the viewer to open up to an unexpected space, where our common perception of things is disrupted.

With respect to its importance, this exhibition received the precious support of the JAPAN FOUNDATION.

Production Manager: Isabelle Olivier.

Open Thursday to Saturday from 12:00 to 18:00 and by appointment. Access: tram 93, 94, Abbaye station

Cours d’Ikebana 1 jeudi par mois 10h30 ou 13h30

Chaque année, des cours d’Ikebana – art floral japonais – sont donnés à Mariemont par un maître de l’école Ohara, pour les débutants comme pour des personnes ayant déjà une certaine pratique.
L'Ikebana, c'est l'art de composer des bouquets qui mettent les fleurs, les branchages et les feuillages en valeur selon certaines règles et méthodes qui varient suivant les écoles.
L'observation de la nature est très importante, car l'accent est mis sur les saisons, le processus de croissance des végétaux et la beauté de l'environnement naturel. Pratiquer l'Ikebana permet de se retrouver face à la nature et face à soi-même: une forme de méditation active qui nous laisse entrevoir un message de simplicité devant ces végétaux par essence éphémères.

Atelier de fabrication et pliage de furoshikis Tous les derniers samedis de chaque mois, je vous propose de fabriquer votre propre furoshiki et d'apprendre à faire les nouages pour en faire le sac de votre choix !
Le furoshiki est un tissus carré qui appartient à la tradition japonaise et dont le nouage, selon sa dimension, permet de créer des emballages d'objets (bento, cadeaux, etc.), des sacs pour sortir ou des sacs pour faire les courses, et même des vêtements improvisés ! C'est un objet très fonctionnel et écologique qui peut être simple ou élégant, selon les envies de chacun !
Le prix est de 25 euros, tissus non compris. Des tissus japonais, des unis, et de très beaux tissus fleuris (de chez Rowan) seront en vente sur place.
