Performance by Ujino + contact Gonzo

This dream match between exhibition artist Ujino and contact Gonzo is for one night only. Ujino's works often include musical elements and take the form of "sound sculptures" called The Rotators assembled from existing objects such as baseball bats and electric drills. Meanwhile, over the last few years, Osaka-based unit, contact Gonzo, has gained an international reputation for their dynamic and confrontational performances that at first appear like fistfights. This performance takes place using Ujino's newest work in The Rotators series, giant sound installation at the exhibition. Ujino creates the sounds while contact Gonzo provides the dynamic performance.

Performers: Ujino, contact Gonzo
Date: 1:00 Sunday, 28 March 2010
Venue: Galleries, Mori Art Museum
Admission: Free (exhibition ticket required)
