 Takashi Makino
(JP/2018/ DCP/60mins) 

 We are proud to present Takashi Makino’s latest film and his first cinemascope 4K feature length production.

Makino is one of the most prolific and adventurous filmmakers working in Japan today and is known worldwide for his complex, immersive and overwhelming film experiences.

In Makino Takashi’s practice, the abstract is drawn out of the real through the layering of images, flickers of light and the perpetual movement of dots and grains. Memento Stellacombines up to 200 layers at any one time. Screen space is redefined with a flattened image surface that engulfs our peripheral vision and feels deeper the closer we focus our eyes.

Memento Stellatakes us to a place where different rules apply. We travel to a universe built up of countless images, figurative and non-figurative and accompanied by an equally complex soundtrack. Divided into five movements, sometimes abstract and distant, sometimes almost narrative – our gaze seeks recognition in the assembled imagery and we are compelled to compose our own story, a vision unique to each audience member.

Takashi Makino will be present to introduce the work.

The Dream That Kicks have joined forces once again with our long-standing collaborators Atelier Nord, which gives us the opportunity to view another Makino work ‘ Cinéma Concret’at the AN gallery at Olaf Ryes plass 2. This 3D masterpiece from 2015 will be installed on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th, Makino will give a presentation in the gallery on 23rd. More details at: ateliernord.no.
