about

田巻 真寛 / Shinkan Tamaki

見たことのないイメージと新しい知覚の気づきを求め、主に映像とそれに関連した作品を制作する。抽象と具象の境界やイメージと音の狭間を行き交う作品、メディアの物質性に着目し、フィルムを造形物として映像に応用した作品などがある。ロッテルダム国際映画祭、カナダのメディアシティ映画祭での上映をはじめ、スペインで最もコアな実験映画祭(S8)に招待されるなど、海外での上映が続いている。近年は光学現象を映像に変換するパフォーマンスも行っている。

Born in 1982, Japan. Artist in search of never-before-seen images and new perceptual experience. He started making moving image with 16mm film in 2006. Main theme is to lead the audience’s perception to change naturally and sometimes drastically bycoming and going across borders between image and non-image, sound and image with extracting film’s materiality. The works have been screened at many film festivals, including International Film Festival Rotterdam. Recently, He performs to transform optical phenomenon into moving image.

Images do not live in this world but in the eye of the beholder. Perception is just the result of the human vision failures, and the way we educate our look. Shinkan Tamaki films are propelled from this idea as if from a trampoline, sometimes helped in their drive by the properties of the photochemical support, sometimes by the basic principles of light and color. High contrast, the distinction between figure and ground, folds, shadows, negative and positive image, traces and marks left by analog processes: these are some of Tamaki’s resources in his efforts to explore the latitude of film contrast thoroughly, and try the possibilities of the light spectrum. A stroll that breaks into a thousand pieces, the body of an animal that becomes an abstract choreography or a boat trip where sky and sea are exchanged and denatured are just some of the means to un-educate the eye that the films by Shinkan Tamaki provide, where everything can become nothing, and nothing the entire universe.
