Exhibition open Friday to Sunday

1pm-7pm

By appointment only.

Return Journey makes use of a video shot on train from London’s Heathrow Airport to the city centre on Kaz’s return to London, where he lives and works, from Japan, his country of birth. This new site specific video installation explores where we come from and questions what is ‘reality’ and ‘truth’.

For the work, Kaz uses a technique he has been working with in recent years where a video is projected through sheets of glass to create multiple moving images in the exhibition space with a single projector.

The ‘actual’ image is projected onto a wall as the beam go through glass, while multiple reflected ‘false’ images from each of the 10 glass sheets co-exist in the space and these, along with the constantly changing scenery seen from a moving train provide a space to contemplate the source of everything, including the self.

 

 

Please book your visit by emailing tadpolelab01@gmail.com at least 2 hours before your preferred time slot. You will be sent a confirmation email with information on how to get to the space.

Nearest Tokyo Metro stations: Omotesando and Meiji Jingu-mae

Please note that it may not be possible to allocate your preferred timeslot due to restriction on the number of viewers in the space.
