日本の掲示板／Noticeboards of Japan by Olivier Mignon & Nik van der Giesen
Kanazawa-based Belgian curator Olivier Mignon, who leads the "Keijiban" project, and Nick, a Dutch photographer/filmmaker who is also based in Kanazawa.・A collection of works by Van der Giessen.
This book contains photographs of various bulletin boards that the two found, mainly in Kanazawa. Bulletin boards are so familiar to Japanese people that they rarely pay attention to them nowadays. The heterogeneity, the depth of flavor, and the melancholy that drifts somewhere are comically told from the humorous and sharp points of view of the two.
"Bulletin boards can be found on sidewalks and walls everywhere in Japan. They stand in various, sometimes unexpected forms. It's an exaggeration. Bulletin boards, which are supposed to attract attention in the first place, and yet most of them exist quietly, unnoticed by anyone. This is the tragic fate of modern Japanese bulletin boards." - Olivier Mignon (excerpt from the preface of this book)
