Ryoichi Kurokawa subassemblies and Myriam Bleau Unsculpt – Double Bill

About Ryoichi Kurokawa

Japanese artist Ryoichi Kurokawa is a true poet of the transformative cinema, lyrically transfiguring the analogue representations of perceived nature into digital streams of vertiginous imagery & emotion. The architecturally crafted precision of his sensitively synched fragmentary images placed side by side on our retina, tends to displace the persistence of blurred memory under the effect of boundless luminosity.

Audio and visual concordance are key in Kurokawa’s works. He considers both the audio and visual element as different vectors of a unique piece and insists that they have to flow together to enter a collision at the same time. As can be viewed from his works, Kurokawa states that nature is his principle source of inspiration. All of his works lie in this notion of hybridization. Between analogue and digital, but also between time and space, the full and the fragmentary, the simple and the complex, the reactive and the contemplative, the auditory and visual.”

In recent years, his works have been shown across the world at international festivals and museums including Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, Venice Biennale, Minsheng Art Museum, Barbican Centre and Sonar. In 2010, he was awarded the Golden Nica at Prix Ars Electronica in the Digital Musics & Sound Art category.

About subassemblies

In subassemblies Kurokawa uses 3D data and thermal imaging, combined with film, to explore the relationship between nature and the remains of human-made architecture. He creates layers of order and disorder while exposing the force of both nature and art.

Trees and rocks, corridors and rooms melt and shapeshift and finally merge in a captivating visual rush that feels like a real glimpse of the art of the future… Illusion is back. Visual sensation is back. O brave new world…” Guardian

About Myriam Bleau

Myriam Bleau is a composer, digital artist and performer based in Montréal, Canada.

Using music and sound, she creates gestural electronic music performances, audiovisual interfaces, video works and installations that articulate sound, light, movement and images. Her work investigates performance, both as a codified cultural manifestation, and as an embodied re-enactment of symbolic systems through human and non-human agencies, including machine learning.

Her work has been recognised and presented internationally, at festivals such as Prix Ars Electronica Japan Media Arts Prize, Sónar, MUTEK and Transmediale.

Myriam returns to ACCA following the hugely successful presentation of her project Ballistics in 2019

About Unsculpt

Based on the methodology of speculative architecture and inspired by the writings of Donna Haraway – a prominent American scholar in the history of consciousness, science and technology – Unsculpt is an audiovisual performance exploring urban and natural scenes created by humans and machines.

Generated with artificial intelligence, synthetic landscapes emerge as fragments of dreams, faded postcards from an imagined future. Human and natural constructions – mountains, seashores, skyscrapers and facades – are digitally sampled, instantiated and assembled in animated collages. A fleeting materiality emerges, machine-learning allowing for a slow metamorphosis between textures and materials, from marble to silk, from concrete to flesh.
