Double Double
Art Center Ongoing, Tokyo

Double Double is an audiovisual essay which stands in-between document and fiction, produced during a three-month artistic residency, held at the Art Center Ongoing, in Tokyo. During the residency, a series of talks have been fostered with mostly independent creative workers, such as artists, musicians, curators, filmmakers... The selection of participants was done almost casually, but taking into consideration their non-institutionalized activities. These scheduled meetings happened every week, during the sunset time, a time frame I imposed, as a transformative context between day and night, as well as the passage period between working activities towards after-work. Questionings raised point towards the most emergent processes of transformation in Japan and how such quests might be activated through non-events, that is, non-official events, artistic, clandestine or out of mainstream, and how it reflects the emergent feelings of change.
