Artist Talk: Koizumi Meiro
* Booked Out
Listen to the Sound of the Earth Turning Exhibition-Related Program
Conducted in Japanese
Koizumi Meiro’s new work Good Machine Bad Machine (2022) is currently on view at the Listen to the Sound of the Earth Turning exhibition. At this talk, the artist will offer a wide-ranging personal insight into the work - from his motive for making something with “hypnotic suggestion” as its main element, and the concept of the work, to anecdotes from the production process.
Special guest at this program will be hypnotist Urushihara Masataka, who supervised the hypnotism in Good Machine Bad Machine and actually hypnotizes characters in the work. He will join Koizumi to help further understanding of the phenomenon of “hypnotic suggestion.” In the second half of the talk, participants will also be able to take part in a demonstration of Urushihara’s hypnosis.
