Visual noise 4: Ryoichi Kurokawa – Ground

Posted on: December 8, 2013

Ryoichi Kurokawa is an Japanese artist who lives in Germany (Berlin). His works take on multiple forms such as concert piece, screening works, recordings and installation. These works are shown at international festivals and museums including Tate Modern [UK], Venice Biennale [IT], ARS Electronica [AT], Transmediale [DE], Mutek [CA] and Sonar [ES].

Ground – a work from 2011-  appears like a still image within the animated sequence, as the transitions from one motion to the next are slurred and extended. The fragmented images and sounds spark tension and underscore that this work was inspired by the battle grounds of the Middle East during war time. Even if such terrain is not scenic, it’s still a natural setting upset by violence.
