Liu Mifune Art Ensemble

57歳で早世した多才な台湾出身の芸術家、劉生容(1928-1985)の残した、
抽象絵画を展示保存するとともに、1926年製スタインウェイのフルコンのピアノを活用し、絵画、音楽、建築の三位一体を実現すべく、1999年に完成したプライベート・ホール。

劉生容は15歳、終戦前まで東京で暮らし、トモエ学園、玉川学園で学んだ。戦後台湾を代表する前衛作家として、東京で個展を開き、若干38歳で東京国立近代美術館、県立神奈川近代美術館、長岡近代美術館などに作品を収蔵されるなど、晩年まで日本の岡山で創作活動をつづけた。

一方でヴァイオリンを始め、音楽をこよなく愛した氏の精神は子供たちに受け継がれ、特に劉生容記念館において、これまでに40数回の国内外の一流演奏家による一期一会のコンサートが行われ、劉生容の芸術に触発された、音楽と人間の関係の探求が続けられている。

Liu Mifune Art Ensemble - Memorial hall rendering honor to Sei Yo Liu


Sei Yo Liu (1928 - 1985) is father of Bunsho Mifune, Liu MAER's founder.
He was a multitalented artist from Taiwan, but passed away early at the age of fifty-seven. Displaying and preserving abstract paintings of Sei Yo Liu is the first aim of the building. At the same time, for the sake of realizing trinity (paintings, music and architecture) the private hall was completed in 1999 putting the full-concert Steinway grand piano (made in 1926) to practical use.
Sei Yo Liu went to Tomoe Gakuen and Tamagawa Gakuen, having lived in Tokyo until the end of the Second World War when he was fifteen years old. He is one of the up-front artists who represent postwar Taiwan. Having put on a solo exhibition in Tokyo, his works were already in storage at National Tokyo Modern Art Museum, Kanagawa Modern Gallery and Nagaoka Modern Museum of Fine Arts when he was thirty-eight-year young. He continued his creative work in Okayama, Japan to the end of his life.
On the other hand, Sei Yo Liu loved music very much, beginning with the violin. Father's spirit is inherited by his children. Especially at Sei Yo Liu Memorial Hall (Liu Mifune Art Ensemble) there have been held once-in-a-lifetime encounter concerts more than forty times, which has the characteristic of once-in-a-lifetime encounter. First-class performers have been invited from Japan and abroad.
