Hiroshi Sugimoto Noh Such Thing As Time - RARE BOOK
Dai Nippon Printing Co, 2001. Condition: Like New. This is a signed copy of the rare book of Hiroshi Sugimoto's "NOH SUCH THING AS TIME" published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name. The Noh performance was directed by Sugimoto and presented at Kunsthaus Bregenz (Austria), September 26-November 11 2001 and at the Dia Center for the Arts (New York, NY), October 3-6, 2001. The book is truly gorgeous. It's printed and folded accordion style with two covers each showing a detail of Sugimoto's Pine Tree Landscape, 2001 and three plates inside, In Praise of Shadows, 1999, Pine Tree Landscape, 2001 and Seascape, Yashima, 2001. Starting with the front cover, the first half of of the book shows the inscription, copyright page, the first plate (In Praise of Shadows), followed by the text of the play and the second plate (Pine Tree Landscape), then when you reach the middle of the book, there is the third plate (Seascape), then if you start from the back cover, you see the first plate, followed by the text of the play in Japanese and the second plate, then back to the middle for the third plate. It includes the slipcover that it came in. There is some minor wear and dust marks on the cover. Also included are the original invitation to the performance, the performance program and my admission ticket. I met Mr. Sugimoto in the gallery prior to the performance and he signed the book.
