The concept of the separation between the studio, the imaginary space of making (representational space), and the space of viewing was deeply problematized by the notion of site-specificity and especially the work and writing of Daniel Buren. Kazuhito Naganuma proposes a concept of studio practice that both problematizes both representation and becomes an alternative to Buren’s post-studio practice. In this concept a studio is a special place where the information of ephemeral space-time experience is assembled and translated into matters in the form of what Jean-Luc Nancy calls “the vestige.” He argues that there is a middle ground between self-referential art, which tends to become a matter of taste and escape into cosmologic incomprehension or nihilistic insignificance, and contemporary conceptual art, which often is a social process devoid of a complex engagement with aesthetic concerns.
