Harinezumi no Mori (The Forest of Harinezumi) is a video installation that mutates and transforms as it moves around different cities all over the world, like a forest, it merges with foreign substances, roots deep in the earth, and in the end embraces everything.
It all begun in March 2010 in New York. The artistic sphere speaks only about a small digital camera: Digital Harinezumi. Completely out of date, this camera cannot shoot clearly like one of those high-tech cameras. Its fickle and rough shot are always full of noises, and leaves us with a sense of déjà-vu. When it comes to the videos, its peculiarity is outstanding. That is what caught the eyes of the artists*. They immediately realized how unique this video camera could be. And soon…so many videos created by many different artists. In March 2010, the videos were shown at the entrance of the New Museum in New York.
Next was the Tokyo show - where a new way of expressions was born. It was called "The Forest of Harinezumi." The videos collected from all over the world were cut into pieces, then shuffled and connected. Jubilant videos, melancholic videos, nostalgic videos, and wild laughter - looping the videos of everything, happening around the world, they became 100 different videos, playing on more than 100 small and big screens. As the music and the images were synched at certain times then let lose at other times, we have tempted to create a forest out of videos.
In December, the forest comes to Paris and will settle at agnès b.
