HIKARI

ShugoArts Online – Film Screening

2020.5.2 Sat - 5.6 Wed

 

As a special program for Flowers in the Heart, the current online exhibition by Aki Kondo, we are going to stream the full length of Kondo's film work HIKARI from Saturday, May 2 to Wednesday, May 6. 

HIKARI is Kondo’s first short film, which was released to the public in 2015.

Using the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami as its motif, Kondo put stop motion animation with 14,000 scenes painted in oil and live action depicting a story of a painter and his lover together. Throughout the film the artist expresses her thoughts toward the victims of the disaster and presents us with a silver lining. Made up of both animated and live action segments, the work functions as an extension of her paintings or as a painting with words.

It is our wish that we can deliver Kondo’s strong message to you in this uncertain and unstable time. Please enjoy the film along with our online exhibition Flowers in the Heart and our Online Catalogue.

The Atsushi Yamamoto Show

ShugoArts Online – film screening

2020.4.11 Sat - 5.10 Sun

 

We are pleased to announce a special online film screening of three video works by Atsushi Yamamoto, including one that has not been released to the public.

Atsushi Yamamoto chose the City of Hue in Vietnam for the destination of his year-long overseas training from September, 2018. While being away from the contemporary art scene and unable to communicate fluently in the local language, the artist managed to create nearly fifty new artworks. In one of those artworks titled I, the artist himself, I, is in a small boat slowly moving forward in Hue’s bright yet quiet dusk during its rice growing season. This is one of his many artworks that make the viewers think how valuable artists are to this ever-changing world. Please enjoy the screening.
