《美少女の美術史》
Bishojo:Young Pretty Girls in Art History


* Please scroll down for English version

「美少女(Bishojo)」一詞為世界通用的日文語彙,人類對「美」的意識與慾望,何時開始寄託於 「少女」的形體?


《美少女的美術史》可說是由浮世繪、洋畫、日本畫、漫畫、雕塑與新媒體藝術交織而生的敘事空 間,引導觀者自由穿梭於各時代的夢幻想像,直視「少女」的生命狀態,探索社會對「美」的無盡 追求。


回溯十七、十八世紀日本江戶時期,「美人畫」主題的浮世繪,伴隨印刷技術及貿易發展,深根本 土、遠播重洋,甚至影響了西洋美術的風格。十九世紀,源自歐陸的雜誌產業隨西化政策匯入東瀛 ,短時間內蔚為潮流。加上學校制度的普及化,社會上出現了充滿青春活力的新族群「女學生」及 商業市場上的新客層「女職員」。以年輕女性為主要讀者的雜誌,一時間百家爭鳴,與雜誌合作的 畫家如高畠華宵、竹久夢二、中原淳一等人,更推出了數以萬計、引領風潮的美人插畫,逐步建構 了「美少女」的形象。1962年,漫畫家赤塚不二夫筆下以魔法化妝鏡「變身」的少女角色開啟了新 紀元,呼應社會現象及人性需求的各類型美少女,大量地出現紙本漫畫、電視卡通、電玩遊戲等傳 播載體之中。


千禧年後,隨著影音技術及互聯網的革新,少女旋風席捲全球,「初音未來」等虛擬偶像更吸引許 多觀者晉身為二次創作者,以重繪、再製「美少女」表達對於作者或角色的認同,發展出姿態各異 的視覺刺激。大眾與「美少女」視覺文化的共感,以及在商業上的大量挪用,於現代社會興起了強 化或反省的兩股極端視點,誘發許多藝術家以此現象發展作品,也成為當代藝術中不可忽視的議題 。

Bishojo: Young Pretty Girls in Art History

“Bishojo” is a Japanese word used throughout the whole world; yet when exactly does human’s awareness and desire of “beauty” take the form of “young girls”?


Bishojo: Young Pretty Girls in Art History offers a narrative space interwoven with ukiyo-e, Japanese yoga, manga, sculpture and new media art, which leads the audience to freely explore the fantasies of different eras, gaze into the life and representation of “young girls,” and explore the never-ending inquiry of what constitutes “beauty” in our society.


Taking a retrospective look at the Edo period in the 17th and 18th century, ukiyo-e featuring the motif of “Bijin-ga” (paintings of beautiful women) enjoyed widespread popularity in Japan and became a great influence over Western art style after it was brought across seas and continents as a result of advancing printing technology and bourgeoning global trade. In the 19th century, European magazine industry arrived in Japan and was an instant sensation. As education became more common and the number of schools increased, a new group of young and energetic “girl students” emerged in society and the commercial market also discovered a new clientele known as “female clerks.” Suddenly, magazines targeting young women as their primary readers grew, and artists such as Takabatake Kasho, Takehisa Yumeji and Nakahara Junichi collaborated with these magazines and created innumerous and popular illustrations featuring beautiful young women, gradually shaping the image of “pretty young girls.” In 1962, manga artist Akatsuka Fujio ushered in a new era with his young heroine known for her ability to “change appearances” with the help of a magic mirror. A wide range of pretty young girl images echoing social phenomena and responding to human desires started increasing drastically in communication media, including manga, cartoons and video games.


After the second millennium, the epoch-making revolution of audiovisual technologies and internet transformed the wave of young pretty girls into a global trend. Virtual idols led by Hatsune Miku create a large fan base, many of whom have become derivative artists who express their love for the characters or their creators through redrawing and reproducing the artworks, giving rise to diversified visual representations. The popularity of the visual culture centering on “pretty young girls,” along with its extensive commercialization, has led to two opposing viewpoints—one strives to reinforce the trend, and the other urges to reflect more on it. Many artists have created works drawing inspiration from this phenomenon, rendering it an undeniable issue in contemporary art.


This exhibition starts with the cultural studies of images and examines the development of life history and aesthetic values through the works of over sixty important artists, including Suzuki Harunobu, Kaburaki Kiyokata, Yoshitomo Nara, Tezuka Osamu, Maruo Suehiro and more. With the most iconic manga characters as image codes, the exhibition unfolds the fluid and evolving images of “young girls” in both the changing industry and technology, guiding the audience to discover the history and intricate connection between popular culture and traditional art.
