22 April – 18 June 2017
Opening Saturday 29 April, 4pm

Using everyday materials found in the immediate vicinity, Yukihiro Taguchi creates formations that are animated through stop-motion techniques. In the constant flux of things becoming and disassembling, he revels in the potential for reinvention, performance and play embedded in any place, and the chain reaction that can be sparked by a single shift.

From the beginning of April, Taguchi will be in Tāmaki-makau-rau for, developing a new humorous project that travels through and reacts to the city. In addition to responding to the things that cross his path, the nature of Taguchi’s work often requires a team, as the objects need to be assembled and reassembled for each photograph that are then joined together to make a single video. In the past, this has opened up opportunities for local audiences to join in the making of an artwork.

This project follows on from last year’s presentation at Te Uru of five stop-motion works as part of the exhibition Yukihiro Taguchi: In Formation.

Yukihiro Taguchi’s visit is supported by the Chartwell Trust.
