Min Tanaka, dance, 2020

October 15, 2020

Documented in Yamanashi during Covid-19 isolation, dance (2020) is currently on display in the exhibition, Matthey Barney, Carolee Schneemann, Kazuo Shiraga, Min Tanaka, at Fergus McCaffrey Tokyo.

Min Tanaka’s 15-minute homemade film captures an emotionally charged, and physically nuanced, choreography aptly reflecting the surrealism of the current shared global condition. Moving between the communal and the personal, Tanaka’s precise movements are centered on an abandoned stage, erected the year prior to the farm’s establishment, and offered back as an homage to artist Noriyuki Haraguchi (1946–2020) who aided in its partial
construction.
