Hero ヘロ is a 15 minute site specific installation / performance for the 24 meter display of Zorlu PSM Istanbul and our second intercontinental collaboration.
We have all been swallowed into the belly of the whale at some point in our lives. Motoi experienced the mind blowingly beautiful scene of a whale breaching out of the water off the coast of Réunion Island last summer. I’ve experienced the belly of the whale in Istanbul in October 2015.
All we wanted to do was to share our relaxing, abstract memories instead of an exhausting high-tech, shiny digital art. Hero ヘロ represents a calm transformation process. A necessary, sometimes dark and difficult step for us to face before continuing our journey towards unity.
In collaboration with Motoi Shimizu & Sinan Tinar for Sonar+D Istanbul 2018 - 6-7 April 2018.
