Mr.Someya doing a Handspring

2009, Video installation, 1:35 min., concrete slab, 180x360x5cm

In this piece, Japanese gallery owner Takuro Someya, dressed in a suit, performs a forward handspring on freshly poured concrete. The tracks left behind on the concrete trace the path of the acrobatic activity, which was simultaneously filmed by several high-speed cameras. This piece was exhibited at the Yamashita+Kobayashi solo exhibition that took place at Mr. Someya’s gallery.
