Hiraki Sawa
Jul 2014 - Mar 2015

Like many of Hiraki Sawa's video works, O 2009 is a subtle reflection on time and motion, travel and dislocation. Having lived between London and Japan for many years, cultural mobility has formed a key reference in Sawa's work, with his narrative sequences often about journeys into real, subconscious or imagined worlds. In recent years, Sawa's practice has expanded into elaborate multi-screen installations, enabling him to explore multiple narratives and perspectives. O considers cycles of time and movement through immersive imagery, including the surface of the moon, the interior of an abandoned house, and the landscape of central Australia, accompanied by an evocative soundtrack by Dale Berning.
