poster for Takehiro Iikawa "Good Streetlamp"

This event has ended.

Takehiro Iikawa's previous work consists mostly of experimental video that tackles the subject of time and how it is perceived. His "Clock for Time Exercises," one of the works on display at this exhibition, is based on the act of abandoning the concept of time dictated by a clock that measures it out in seconds, minutes and hours, and instead expressing it in terms of a single video that unfolds over the space of a 24 hour day. This "clock" is not a device for partitioning out units of time, but rather a contraption that expresses it in terms of an endless flow.

Iikawa's "Good Streetlamp," a work from which the title of this exhibition is derived, is another new work that was made by continuously focusing on and filming a single streetlamp using a fixed camera for 24 hours. The "clock" in this work consists of various changes and events that occur around the streetlamp as time passes.

Also on display are works from Iikawa's two other projects "Decorator Club" and "Very Heavy".
