Yuki HAYASHI ‘the world and fragments of the world’

Yuki HAYASHI ‘the world and fragments of the world’≪the world and fragments of the world≫

Yuki HAYASHI(b. in 1976)is a video artist whose creative base is in Kansai area, however his recent actions are expanded internationally and he started to draw attention within and out Japan, His materials are scenes of everyday life. By cutting out and layering the huge amount of those images captured on his computer, he makes an animation. Like various data are saved in disks and memories, HAYASHI, by putting scenes from somewhere together with somewhere else, or sometime with some other time, try to describe the landscape of another world where might be connected with the real world. Such another world looks like a transient made-up one from video games and the fragments of the real world flashing in and out in it look like looping on no purpose. But they are layers of memories experienced from repeated dialogues with space and time. And they overlap with each other with resonant to vibrate again with the reality.  

This show is to introduce his latest work of 3 videos, “the world and fragments of the world”. “Fragments of photos are being overlapped bit and bit. / I do it myself with the laptop. / Documents and memories make layers. / Thus a scenery rises itself and in it I go / It is something I might have seen / or someone has seen / it maybe in Japan, or somewhere, /might be in the laptop, / It is a world of such a  vague landscape. / I go further. / There is no goal. / Even so I think I could reach somewhere abyssal. / I simply go further”, thus writes the artist. It is our pleasure to see his new world which is not only the two-dimensional film world.
