A Screening of Shiro Takatani - Between Nature And Technology

A multimedia staging unfolding time and space

 

‘Everything is done with precision. It does surprise, and occasionally delight.’

ST/LL is a multimedia production created by Japan’s avant-garde contemporary artist Shiro Takatani, a founding member of artist collective Dumb Type.  It is a visual spectacle exploring the notion of time and space.  The stage is like a mirror to exhibit the reflection of massive projections and movement of actors, where audiences are transported to a hypnotic stage.  The music and sound effects are created by the esteemed composer and Oscar winner Ryuichi Sakamoto, together with Marihiko Hara and Takuya Minami.  Japanese actress Mayu Tsuruta, a nominee for the Best Supporting Actress in the Japan Academy Film Prize, also participates in the performance.  The programme was premiered in France in 2015 and was then taken on tour to Belgium, Italy, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore.

 

The programme contains some Japanese and English

Meet-the-artist session (In Japanese and Cantonese) after 20/9 performance

The running time of each performance is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes without intermission.

Audience is strongly advised to arrive punctually.  Latecomers and audiences who leave during the performance will only be admitted at a suitable break.

Shiro Takatani

Shiro Takatani studied environmental design at Kyoto City University of Arts.  As a visual artist and theater director, he works diversely with photography, video, lighting, graphics and set design, and uses high-technology in his creations.  He is a founding member of artist collective Dumb Type, which was established in 1984.  Besides Dumb Type, Takatani began a parallel solo career in 1998, in which he has directed visuals for various theatre productions.  His own performances La chambre claire, CHROMA and ST/LL were well received internationally.  His first retrospective solo exhibition, Camera Lucida, was held at the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum in 2013.  He also worked in collaboration with diverse artists.  In 2017, the remarkable collaboration with Fujiko Nakaya, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Min Tanaka for fog and cloud sculptures was presented at Tate Modern, London and The New National Museum, Oslo.  Takatani received the Japan’s 65th Prize of Fine Arts (Media Art) in 2015 and the Kyoto Prefecture Cultural Award in 2019.

Premiered in the International Festival of Film on Art 2019 (FIFA) in Montreal

Director: Giulio Boato

Production: Idéale Audience

Conceived by award-winning Italian director Giulio Boato, this documentary film traces the three-decade artistic journey of Shiro Takatani in Europe and Japan.

Working closely with his collaborators, including composer Ryuichi Sakamoto,Takatani explores the origins of matter, from infinitesimal plankton to galaxies. He celebrates his relationship with art in his eclectic oeuvre which ranges from dance and theatre to installation. Nature and people are observed through technology, and there are interactions between performers with cameras and large screens.
