VERDENSRUM IV, Japan: Landscape/Portrait
The VERDENSRUM series is a a 3D-film and cross-artistic project about cultural icons or metaphors of important world cultures, by Danish media artist Birgit Kjærsgaard.
The performance Landscape/Portrait is inspired by a Japanese mandala ritual practiced by the monks of the Kōyasan mountains and the characteristic Japanese landscapes associated with the ritual. Furthermore it draws on the power filled Japanese form of expressive dance – butoh - and the sound of the shakuhachi flute.
The physical arrangement of this performative work is reminiscent of the tableaux found in Japanese temples. It consists of three parallel 3D-projections, which variously alternate and play together, contrasted by butoh of Sayoko Onishi and Kinya Tsuruyama.
