Exhibition of 'muse series – paintings of Cenote'
@KUGURU, 1F of TONGARI BLDG.
26/9/2019 〜 20/10/2019

YIDFF2019 collaboration program
Kaori Oda exhibition
muse series
paintings of Cenote

In conjunction with the 16th Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival 2019, which will begin on October 10, we will exhibit and introduce painting works by filmmaker Kaori Oda. Oda learned from master Tal Bella in Sarajevo, and his work “Mine ARAGANE”, which was closely linked to miners working in Bosnian coal mines, was selected for YIDFF2015 “New Asian Currents” and attracted attention.
This exhibition “muse series – paintings of Cenote” will exhibit a part of the “Muse” series of 100-piece paintings that Oda drew in his room during the editing period of the new work “Cenote” taken in Mexico. Cenote is a spring in a cave dotted in the northern part of the Yucatan Peninsula. In the days of the Mayan civilization, it was considered a sanctuary linking the present life and the yellow spring for those who have roots in the Maya who still live in the surroundings. Like the previous work “Mine AKAGANE”, what was Oda's vision that he saw and felt in the underground world? Along with the movie “Cenote” to be screened at YIDFF2019 “New Asian Currents” this time, please come to this exhibition where light and darkness, life and death, movies and paintings come together.

Planning: kanabou

At the beginning of 2017, I watched "Snake Dance" in a movie about Lumière Brothers. I was fascinated by the shot and started drawing pictures of dancers, and I became involved with the pictures of the Mexican underwater cave that I am working on day by day.
They drew their faces while thinking of the girls who were thrown into the spring in the cave as a ginger because of the rain. During the shooting in Mexico, I met many people, listened to many stories, and dive into an unknown underwater space.
I feel like I was trying to refute what my mind and body had experienced by making an output of drawing pictures every day while gathering the shooting materials after returning to Japan.

INTERVIEW

About the piece:

Vienna is the city with the highest quality of living in the world – this was confirmed yet again in 2018. But the city’s immaculate façade made of Habsburg splendour, Sacher torte and snow-white Lipizzaner horses is only half the story. Many inhabitants do not fit into this picture and are hidden from sight owing to poverty and social hierarchies. Béla Tarr’s Missing People makes them visible again. Tarr’s magnum opus, Sátántangó, is widely regarded as one of the most important works in film history. And according to his director colleague Gus Van Sant, the Hungarian comes closer to the actual rhythm of life than virtually any other filmmaker. This is also true for his new project, which is his first time directing after a long creative break. Using just a few shots, Tarr shows these invisible people in the kind of place to which they would normally have no access. This work, created in the intersection of film, installation and performance, will be presented exclusively during the Wiener Festwochen – at the filming location itself. While the visitors remain amongst themselves, only traces of the protagonists are left behind. A powerful plea for humanity.
