Yuichiro Tamura “Nightland”
This event has ended.
“Nightland”, Tamura’s first solo show at Yuka Tsuruno, will showcase a new installation that further expands on various notions explored in Nightless. Previous projects showcased a wide range of novel approaches – "Nightless" (Tamura’s graduation project at Tokyo University of the Arts, 2010) went beyond screen-based projections, incorporating an actual Cadillac into the space of the installation, while "Talelight" (2010, Yokohama Civic Gallery Azamino) features a story told by a taxi driver that unravels out of a series of images. Composed of Google Street View photographs taken in daylight, "Nightless" is an imaginary voyage into a world with no concept of night.
While invoking the shifts that have occurred in modes of transportation and movement throughout human history – from pilgrimages, crusades, vacations, railways, automobiles, and airplanes – this exhibition brings together a collection of images that visualize the earth, a consciousness of these images through our actual experience of the world, and a history of the earth that emerges from these movements and migrations. On display will be an installation that includes a new version of "Nightless" that takes its starting point from Clermont-Ferrand in France.
