poster for Doug Aitken: I am in you

Ends in 64 days
Closed Today (Monday)

*In accordance with COVID-19 quasi-emergency measures taken by Ishikawa Prefecture and Kanazawa City’s directives, and in order to prevent further spread of the COVID-19, we will temporarily close an exhibition “Doug Aitken: I am in you” from July 31 (Sat) to September 30 (Thu).

This exhibition showcases Doug Aitken’s “I am in you”, presented at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa for the first time since its acquisition.

Doug Aitken is known for an incredibly diverse body of work ranging from video, photography, sculpture, and architectural interventions to sound, installation, and film offerings. “I am in you” is a 5-screen video installation. Amid everyday scenes of American suburbia, people, nature, manmade objects, and geometric designs overlap deftly with a young girl’s whispering voice, hands clapping in rhythm, and a piano melody, drawing the viewer inexorably into the flow of hallucinatory images on the video. As these images repeat continuously, fragmenting without providing any firm narrative contours, the audience feels the power and speed of this elusive state of flux at a visceral level, experiencing the work as a wandering journey through a vortex of visuals and sound. This is a stunning opportunity to experience first-hand the dynamism of a Doug Aitken video installation in the spacious surroundings of the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa.
