Saturday 10 October, 3.00 – 5.00pm
An afternoon of discussion informed by the Tokyo Correspondence exchange – a series of residencies in Tokyo and London hosted by Camden Arts Centre and Arts Initiative Tokyo.
Artist-in-residence Ryosuke Imamura screens a series of his video works as he joins us for his three-week research residency. Alongside Imamura’s work, the event will consider other artists who have addressed the aesthetic dialogue between east and west including João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva, Simon Fujiwara and Simon Martin. The afternoon is a forum for discussion about the effects of artistic globalism and the influence of local identities.
Ryosuke Imamura b.1982, Kyoto, Japan, considers the relationship between man and his surroundings. His film and sculptural works use electrical artifice, sound and movement to capture our unconscious experiences of daily life. Living and working in Kyoto, Imamura completed his MA in Sculpture at Kyoto City University of Arts in 2007. In 2011 he was selected for the Shiseido Art Egg Award winning first prize and also exhibited in the Yokohama Triennale in Kanagawa, Japan. He has exhibited widely in Japan including his most recent exhibition Art Scope 2012-2014 – Remains of Their Journeys, Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, Japan (2014).
Part of the Tokyo Correspondence series in collaboration with Arts Initiative Tokyo (AIT).
