2001-02-17 until 2001-04-15
Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania
Philadelphia, PA, USA United States of America

Los Angeles artist Bruce Yonemoto (b.1949) is a third-generation American of Japanese descent. He is well known for his collaborative videos and media installations with his brother, Norman, which address cliches and myths of American culture (in particular the influence of Freudian psychology on film, television, and commercial advertising) and aspects of their identities as Japanese Americans.

Los Angeles artist Bruce Yonemoto (b.1949) is a third-generation American of Japanese descent. He is well known for his collaborative videos and media installations with his brother, Norman, which address cliches and myths of American culture (in particular the influence of Freudian psychology on film, television, and commercial advertising) and aspects of their identities as Japanese Americans.

Yonemotos exhibition at ICA will be his first one-person American museum show, and will feature video installations that he executed last year for the InterCommunciation Center in Tokyo. These works employ conventional movie techniques such as claymation and time-lapse shots as well as computer-processed images that spectacularly unfold on the screen.

This visually mesmerizing exhibition will fill both the Eleanor Biddle Lloyd Gallery on the first floor and the Edna Shanis Tuttleman Gallery on the second floor. It will include The Time Machine, which Yonemoto has based on the 1960 science fiction movie after the novel by H. G. Wells. In his 16mm film, the artist juxtaposes time-lapse and claymation images in the same frame and projects them together. With time-lapse he captures a blooming flower until it wilts, and with claymation he does just the opposite. The sequence is repeated in an endless loop referring to eternity, while the clock-shaped screen on which it is projected represents time.
