01/06/2007 SUZUKI Atsushi [so what? 001-300] and [Osaka Hakkei (8 landscapes of Osaka)]

Atsushi Suzuki, living in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka presents the video series entitled "so what?" including 300 short pieces, as well as his new works“8 Landscapes of Osaka”.
The "so what?" video series consists of simple short pieces Suzuki captures from ordinary landscapes and scenes in daily life. These seemingly casual video works are filled with humour, comicality, melancholy, loneliness and beauty hidden in human behavior and nature Suzuki pursues. Suzuki's worldview will give us the opportunity to rediscover the world and to have diverse viewpoints through “so what?” series. We strongly recommend people who are not so keen on video art. Once you see, you cannot take eyes off Suzuki's worldview represented in his humane works!

12/01-18/02/2008 artist pick up: Ayako Yoshimura / palla (Kazuhiko Kawahara)

remo featured Canadian, Australian video artists in the past artist pick up
programmes. The last programme selected 2 Japanese artists- Ayako Yoshimura and palla (Kazuhiko Kawahara).

Yoshimura is currently living in Amsterdam NL. In her video work "place - a city"
hundreds of still images shot from observatories in 6 different cities [Tokyo,
Yokohama, Shanghai. Sao Paulo, New York, and Chicago] joined together and presents
one anonymous and homogenized cityscape, which is deleted particularities;
landmarks, traffic, and signals.

palla, an award-winner of New Cosmos of Photography, captures the unstable,
ambiguous zone- "the lost boundaries area" he calls, concealed in urban cities. You
hardly imagine that only one photograph is manupilated and transformed into such visionary moving images. It should be noted that his works are generated from not only by his idea, but also by online comments left on his website: www.pallalink.net
Besides, large-scale photographic work is exhibited in the remo space.

Cityscapes on their perspective could be a "contemporaty landscape paintings" in the mixture of beauty and distortion existing in our living cities.

Dates: Friday, 12th January to Sunday, 18th February 2007, 15.00-21.00
