Hanoi DOCLAB is pleased to present a screening and talk with young Japanese video artist Yu Araki.
Time: 6:00PM, Feb. 12, 2012
Location: Big hall, Goethe Institut Hanoi
YU ARAKI has participated in numerous national and international screenings, including “Theory of Everything” (7th and 8th screening, curated by Yuki Okumura), and was selected for the 56th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen (with MIACA). Araki received his B.F.A. in Sculpture from Washington University in St. Louis Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts (USA), and his master’s degree in New Media from Tokyo University of Arts. His research concerning ‘the relationship regarding the camera and the self’ is highlighted in the work “Deep Search,” a voyage in which the artist swallows a miniature camera to search for a small figurine in his internal organs. He was one of the four artists selected to participate in the Local-Creator-in-Residence Program at Tokyo Wonder Site Aoyama in 2011-12.
