At this exhibition, Yoshida shows a new video installation work, "27122015_EU_D-BER_SONNENALLEE" along with his recent film "The End of Day and Beginning of the World" (2015), which was taken in Siberia, Russia.
★About the new work
The title, "27122015_EU_D-BER_SONNENALLEE" is derived from the title digital file displayed on his SD card.
On 27 December, 2015, he found a teddy bear at S-Bahnhof SONNENALLEE. He felt that the bear represented the city of Berlin, which had been left behind for years.
From the day he found the teddy bear, he started taking photographs and videos of his everyday life and since then has compiled them in the work "27122015_EU_D-BER_SONNENALLEE."
Through the new work, Yoshida wants to facilitate and share dialogues with the audience about their anxiety and expectation in the past, the present, and the future and want them to feel them directly in his installation work.
★About "The End of Day and Beginning of the World"
The project was inspired by local folk tales of the remote regions where the Arctic Circle crosses the 180th meridian.
It was realized in Siberia-Chukotka, Russia, 2015, with support of Red Cross Chukotka Russia.
