N'Synch #3: Written in the Stars

Videos by Stan Brakhage, Dominique Belloir, Peter Greenawat and Pascal Lievre
Mihoko Ogaki: Threshold

A series of video and media art programs at KEN NAKAHASHI, curated and presented by Stephen Sarrazin.

“Threshold,” the latest installation of the Milky Way series by Mihoko Ogaki, depicts death as a waypoint, or rather a threshold, lying before to be looked beyond a new frontier. Ogaki’s sculptures communicate the state of human life leading to death, including its uncountable, complex emotions by the use of light and light reflecting materials, hence making the gallery become a galaxy of stars. Our daily relationship with screens has removed much of the mystery from images: the spectator now relies on expectation when looking at them. These four works shatter such expectations, taking the spectator somewhere unexpected.

Program:

Dog Star Man, Stan Brakhage USA, 1962
Dominique Belloir, France, Infrarouge Performance, 1980
A Tv Dante, Peter Greenawat, UK 1989
L’Eternel Retour, Pascal Lievre, France, 2012
