Xénogénèse

Morishita Akihiko

A focus on the duality of film. The filmmaker walking in circles and confusing this duality as vertical scratches appear on the image surface. It employs trompe-l’œil tactics to comically allude to the circular nature of human life and, as the artist’s self-portrait, gently mocks the home movie genre.
