ORBIT @ TOKAS Hongo Art Gallery - Tokyo

Tess Martin

€ 1.500

Tess Martin is invited to show the ORBIT project at the TOKAS Hongo Art Gallery in Tokyo, Japan from January 11th untill February 9th 2020.
ORBIT is a project that consists of a short film, an interactive installation, a series of unique prints and videos associated with these prints. The interactive installation came first, and was presented in a group exhibition at WORM in Rotterdam in April 2018. In January 2019 the ORBIT short film premiered at the IFFR. The prints and associated videos were developed on an artist residency in December 2018. Tess Martin explains about the project: Orbit is a phonotrope project about the relationship between humanity and the sun. Each iteration of this project speaks, at its heart, to our relationship with the sun and its energy. The project as a whole has been invited to be displayed in the TOKAS Hongo Art Gallery in Tokyo for one month. The public will be able to experience the interactive installation (drawings on turntables with attached viewing tablets), watch the 7 minute short film, and look at the prints and associated short videos. Martin will also give a one-day workshop in the phonotrope technique which will be open to the public.
