Did I ? 2011

How can the mind lose its memory? This recent work by Hiraki Sawa was inspired by the experience ofone of his friends who had to reinvent his life afterlosing his memory. Hiraki Sawa’s installation, which consists of two screens and a vinyl record playerhas a soundtrack, played forwards and in reverse,that tells this lost story. The camera perspectives differaccording to the direction in which it is played,some visual elements are lost while others are addedand some sequences are modified. The aesthetics ofSawa’s poetry lies in the quality of the image and itsslowness, on discreet cut-ins, echoes and effects ofscale. By blurring the linearity of the narrative through overlays and sound to image displacement, the artist enquires into the cognitive structures of memory –our own memory.With the support of the EU-Japan Fest Japan Committee.
