 What is the Value of art?

 

Who decides it, and how?

What is the value of art?

 

YAMI-ICHI project started from this simple but important question. 

We challenge the current perception of art as a commodity in capitalistic art market by designing a space where various ways of valuing art can be exchanged more freely.

Team YAMI-ICHI produces international art event which mimics art auction employing non-monetary currency for transaction. In this auction, you cannot bid money....but you can bid anything such as skills, services and objects.

This event encourages young and emerging artists to rethink what their own values of their work are, so that they can communicate in a clearer way to the future clients/collaborators.

James

James hewitt / Camille Verhaak

We often think that our 'identity', and our 'personality', is something fixed which controls our life and destiny. Yet we all shift roles throughout our life -different people see different things in us as important, and we respond accordingly. Hence we can see that our 'identity' is not really 'us', but rather the perception of us which then shapes what we do...

Our performance is called "Identity Shifts" (will be performed in Live Art Night on 9th June). It is a performance in music and movement using masks, in which the performers become characters, and then play with how to shape and break the expectations created by each character. The identities of the characters change and shift during the piece -or maybe, it is just different perceptions of the same character?

My artworks play with the digital possibilities for reproducing craft techniques and producing several versions of a single work. If a single authenticity related to a ‘true self’ no longer holds the centre of an artwork, each copy opens up a new space for experimentation as each artwork acquires meaning by its own context and not by being connected to a single source of truth. The artworks I want to offer in the auction are digital paintings printed on canvas. The fact that people always mistake them for water colour paintings works well within the current theme of the Authentic Fake. The designs are made to represent real paint using digital means. By doing so I am trying to blur the lines between the ‘real' and ‘fake'.

I work primarily with intaglio printmaking and as someone who works very hands on with materials, I enjoy process - engaging with the metals, acids, papers, inks and presses. Recently making my own inks from natural pigment grown in Amsterdam and in the past making my own recycled paper to print onto. I look at the themes surrounding space and environment, reflecting areas of concerns such as the relationship between the unnatural the natural environment. Living by the sea in Brighton, UK, I have studied concrete architecture and structures that are by the ocean such as barriers and steps, and abandoned concrete structures such as war bunkers and have created a series of artworks that are inspired by questions and concerns I wanted to explore visually.

Team YAMI-ICHI (闇市)

Sachiko Osawa started a self-initiated project YAMI-ICHI in 2016 as part of her postgraduate project, with a passion to design a place where various ways of valuing art can be exchanged freely among artists and the public. Team YAMI-ICHI members then gathered to realise the idea. The idea of subversive art auction has gone through trial runs in both London and Tokyo, and their debut event in Tokyo was held in March 2017 This event attracted more than 700 visitors over three days. Second and third events happened in London and YAMI-ICHI is planing their next event in Amsterdam in June 2018. Sachiko envisions a development of this project as an international art event, which implements its core vision across different cities and countries.
