The End of the Day and the Beginning of the World

O Fim do Dia e o Início do Mundo | 2015 |12’

Inspirado em contos folclóricos, este projeto foi realizado nas regiões siberianas de Chukotka e Beríngia, onde corre o Meridiano 180, a linha sobre a qual o hoje e o amanhã coincidem. 


Inspired by local raven folk tales, Shingo Yoshida realized this project in the Siberian regions of Chukotka and Beringia, where the 180th Meridian runs vertically, setting the basis for the International Date Line, which separates two consecutive calendar days.

 

BIOGRAFÍA

Shingo Yoshida nasceu em 1974 em Tokyo. Ele vive e trabalha em Berlin.

Deixou o Japão em 1997 e desde então prossegue sua jornada na Europa, na América Latina, na Lapônia, como um eterno fugitivo cultural. Persegue através da fotografia e do vídeo os limites do conceito de cultura. Yoshida foca seu olhar sobre a beleza da natureza ou do comportamento humano. Suas obras revelam sempre uma certa estranheza e absurdo nas atividades humanas. Sua perspectiva artística resiste ao olhar tanto do turista quanto do nativo, mantendo um equilíbrio delicado entre a imparcialidade e marginalidade. Sua obra foi exibida, dentre outras, nas seguintes mostras: Kunstraum Kreuzberg-Bethanien, Berlin, 2016; Gunma Museum of Art, Tatebayashi, Japan 2016; Mulliqi Prize at National Gallery of Arts, Prishtina, Kosovo, 2016; ISTITUTO ZAPPA, Milan, Italy, 2016; Onufri International Prize, National Gallery of Arts Tirana, 2016; Videoart at Midnight #67, 2015; POLARIZED!
