ジェス・ラファエル・ソトのインスタレーション登場

淡いグリーンのビニール製の紐を何千本も天井から吊るし、お客さんはその紐を分け入ってショップに入ってくる仕掛けだ。紐を通過するときのうっとうしさと楽しさ、独特のにおいと感触、ビニールの紐が引き起こす静電気と逆立った髪・・・・・。しかし、この紐をかき分け通り抜ける間に、ショップに入るんだという意識が頭だけでなくからだでも自覚されてしまうのだ。この紐、一見しただけでは、何のことはないただのビニール製の紐だ。しかし町工場と掛け合って4度も色だししたものらしい。
AXIS VOL.60 March/April 1996

Jesús Rafael Soto (June 5, 1923 in Ciudad Bolívar, Venezuela - January 14, 2005 in Paris, France) was a Venezuelan artist. He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art works.

He was trained in Venezuela, and his early influences were Cubism, Cézanne and Mondrian.Soto began his artistic career painting cinema posters in his native city. Soto directed the Escuela de Artes Plasticas in Maracaibo from 1947 to 1950, when he left for Paris and began associating with Yaacov Agam, Jean Tinguely, Victor Vasarely, and other artists connected with the Salon des Realites Nouvelles and the Galerie Denise Rene. He became world-famous as a kinetic sculptor.

Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.
