Teiji Furuhashi: Lovers
Closed
This event is now closed.
Description:
Lovers is an immersive, room-sized multimedia installation by Japanese artist Teiji Furuhashi (1960-1995). Life-sized images of the artist and other fellow members of the Kyoto-based artist collective Dumb Type are projected onto the walls of a darkened room from a tower of computer-controlled video and slide projectors at its center. The figures move like specters around the perimeter of the space, in a looped choreographic sequence made variable by a visitor-activated motion sensor, which intervenes to restart one of the projections when triggered. Presented for the first time since its inaugural exhibition at MoMA in 1995, the installation showcases the results of an extensive conservation effort recently completed by the Museum's media conservators.
