Shingo Yoshida
Gallery On The Move in collaboration with Tulla Center
From March 5 until April 1, 2017

Gallery On The Move is proud to present Shingo Yoshida's solo exhibition 'The End of Day and Beginning of the World', in collaboration with Tulla Center. This exhibition consists in the presentation of four films: 'Error', 'Voyage Au Centre de la Terre', 'The End of Day and Beginning of the World' and 'Carma Points'. In 2016 the film 'Error', have come to be housed as Museum collections in Berlinische Galerie (Dr. Thomas Köhler) Berlin, Akademie der Künste (Wulf Herzogenrath) Berlin, Fluentum (Markus Hannebauer) Berlin. And the film 'Voyage Au Centre de la Terre', got The Prize of the Film Competition 2015 - Winner of Festival 'POLARIZED - MAGNEETTI' in Finland. 'The End of Day and Beginning of the World' (4K video, color, sound, 16:9, 21 min, Siberia-Chukotka, Russia 2015) ...this project at the Russian Far East, namely the Siberian regions of Chukotka and Beringia, was inspired by local raven folk tales. The 'Chukchi' people showed us 'Yaranga', their tents out of the cities. On our way we saw Eskimos ancient housing made of whale bones. To the North pole and Arctic regions we took meat and bread as sacrificial offerings to nature and the ravens to thank them for their protection during the trip. There is a junction where the Arctic Circle crosses the 180th meridian. The latter runs vertically to set the basis for the International Date Line, which separates two consecutive calendar days. 'Voyage au Centre de la Terre / Journey to the Center of the Earth' (HD Video, color, sound, 16:9, loop video, Iceland 2014/07/20-23), project in pursuit of Jules Verne's 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' and its reinterpretation. 'Error' (HDV video, color, sound, 16:9, 11 min, Berlin, Germany 2012) ...the electric play of lamps and sounds sketches out an urban vision, a calm noctural dream. The twinkling of a city street lamp, a strange threebeat cycle, is an established reality, the unreliability of equipment, a bug, an error. Shingo Yoshida uses this to capture the route he follows each day to Alexanderplatz in Berlin to reach his studio. The décor or model – with a passing shadow or rare sign of humanity – lends a scale to the ensemble. This is an urban wandering at night, on which each building stamps its own proportions.

Shingo Yoshida (b. Tokyo, 1974) currently lives and works in Berlin. Yoshida considers the world his studio and therefore a place of constant creation. Travelling around the globe, he finds myths, legends, people and places which are easily over looked and matches them to his creative micro world. With an aesthetic gaze and the most fanciful understanding of life. Yoshida enacts as if he was playing Hide and Seek in the world alone: while hiding himself he seeks the hidden. Shingo Yoshida received his MA with highest honors from Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Art, Villa Arson in Nice France in 2004 and was the 2007 recipient Post-graduate diploma - Program La Seine of Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris. He has completed residencies at Villa Arson Nice France - Centre National d'Art Contemporain 2013 and awarded the Fellowship of Overseas Study Programme for Artists by the Agency for Cultural Affairs by the Japanese Government 2013.
