Artistic practice 2011-2019

New York-based artist Sayaka Maruyama (b.1983) is a multi-disciplinary artist who translates her notions of beauty into photography, drawings, books, and short films.
"Life as a whole is a collective box of emotional experiences. "
"memorandom" records the personal practices of Sayaka Maruyama between 2011-2019, includ- ing photography, drawings, paintings, collages, objects and extracted images from her short films. The ideas and thoughts randomly passing through her mind are visualized in various forms of expres- sion, then translated into the form of a book by the artist herself.
Maruyama feels it is more natural for her to in- stinctively translate her vision into images rather than into words.
Rather than being completed and finished, these images retain all the beauty of the non-finito, they are still in the process of becoming and escape the trap of being categorized in a specific form.
"I am simply interested in how we perceive beauty in our own perspective, react to it and make visible so that we can share with others."
How each person perceives the world can not always be explained logically. Maruyama gives importance to the act of recording indefinable emotions and moments.
By binding her random memorandoms, these collected images, drawings and fragments of text weave multiple layered dialogues that result in a personal, poetic and tangible portrait of the artist.
"I wonder if each reader will get a different feeling and interpretation of my works while leafing through this volume and in return how my work will be influenced by them."

 

ニューヨークを拠点にフォトグラファー、デザイナー、アーティストとして活躍する丸山サヤカの作品集『memorandom(メモランダム)』

memorandomは日々、直感的に生み出されるアイデアやランダムな思考イメージ、パーソナルヒストリーの断片をレイヤーしていく感覚で一冊にまとめた、【私と世界の対話の断片を綴る記憶の目録】である。

世界に感応・共鳴していくことは
時に、言葉では表現できないパーソナルで情緒的な体験が詰まった
宝箱の中に生きるようなものだと思う。

そこで受け取ったメッセージは
ランダムなアイデアとイメージの断片として
内側から直感的にとめどなく溢れ出る。

私にとって日々を過ごしていくことは
立ち現れては消えるあいまいな輪郭を忘れないうちに
メモを綴る感覚でかたちに残していくことの繰り返しだ。
           
私の日常に溜まっていくmemorandom [断片の数々]を拾い集めることで
ありとあらゆるイメージが対話する私的/詩的/視的空間が生まれる。
