ULTRA spectrum_live in KL_01


速報です。日にち空けといて下さい。河野さんの企画で、札幌から3名の音楽家を迎えて。僕は光学現象と映像を配置して、河野さんの音に干渉してみようかと思ってます。日本では初めて見せるパフォーマンスです。最近海外でやったULTRA spectrumをアレンジして、さらに別の要素を加えます。

Contemporary Art Ruhr

毎年ベルリン国際映画祭と同時に同じ会場で開催される、Directors Loungeが、ドイツのエッセンで開かれるContemporary Art Ruhr (Media Art Fair)にブースを出すそうで、そこで私のPassagesが展示上映されることになりました。Directors Loungeは実験的・前衛的な映像を世界中からセレクトして上映する組織です。たぶん。

Directors Lounge In Gear For C.A.R.

From Berlin straight out to the Ruhr, home to Germany’s concentrated multi-millions and “contemporary art ruhr,” a concentrated display of all that is here and now (and beyond) in the world of media art. C.A.R. spreads its considerable wings regularly, reaching a global tally of urban art-zones, but invites to its home turf in this bi-annual gathering of innovative thinkers. Directors Lounge has become a regular-as-clockwork contributor to the more daring summer fair, exporting its international imports and making the trip in person to see visitors through its specially curated mélange of onscreen marvels. The flicks selected join of a temporary world of razor-sharp installations, performance, photography and more, fodder for the wide-awake mind. With contributions from DL partner Cross Art (Zurich-Berlin) and more, a feast of film awaits at World Heritage Site Zollverein in Essen.

ふざけてる訳ではないです(笑) 旅から広がることは沢山あるんです。もし僕がアジアを旅していなかったら、クアラルンプールに上映しに行ってなかったでしょう。


FLEX: the Florida Experimental Film/Video Festival 2014


ここのディレクターであるRoger Beebeとは以前からメールのやり取りをしていて、[+]でなにかできないかとのオファーを受け、葉山嶺、牧野貴の3人のプログラムを送ることになりました。現場には葉山嶺が赴きます。彼自身も作家で、映写機を5台使ってマルチプロジェクションライブをやったりするキチGuyです。(いい意味で。)

ところで、昨年来日し、上映を企画したSteve Cossmanとはロジャーを通じて出会ったのでした。スティーブ知り合う前に、ロジャーから、「タイで旅行中の友達の8mmカメラが壊れてしまったんだ。彼はこの後日本に行くので、もしカメラを持っていたら貸してあげてくれないか?」という内容のメールが来ました。まあ同じ映像作家で東南アジアを愛する者として断る理由はない、と思い快く引き受けました。実は俺もタイを旅行中に、自転車に乗りながら16mmのカメラを運んでいたら、ガタガタの悪路の為にレンズのマウントアダプターが壊れたこともあったなと思い出したり。だからスティーブとは「タイは映像作家にとってはデンジャラスな国だな!」との見解で一致して意気投合したのでした。それが2、3年前の話だったかな。

スティーブがNYで主催するイベント"MONO NO AWARE"は昨年末、彼が帰国してすぐ開催され2日で300人以上も観客が来たそうです。すごいな。
