'To and From' video installation, Dobaebacsa art space, Itaewon til Feb 28
"To and From," a collaborative video project by Naotaka Hiro and Sid M. Duenas hosted at DaiSheng FanDian in Yongsan thru Feb 28, looks at the involvement of Hiro's native Japan and the United States in Saipan during the Pacific battles of World War II. The four-part video series of site-specific footage begins and ends at historically relevant locations on Saipan. Each combines the camera-work of Hiro, and Duenas' writing and speech. The footage consists of unedited, single takes, varying in length from 9 to 14 minutes. For more information, see the gallery's homepage.
