Nominator Text

What I think of as a “spectrum” exists inside the phenomenon of globalization. For example, the Internet has shrunk the distances between things in the world. Recording media have developed and proliferated, making the concept of the timeline ambiguous. What was far is now close; what was in the past is now in the present. This tangle of time and space makes all manner of things consecutive.

Nobue Kitakami is an artist who shows us this tangle. As if to revert the history of optical recording from painting to photography and video, she works laboriously, almost ascetically, by hand, turning video signals into animations that are like series of pictures. While vivid and striking, Kitakami’s work is also somehow nostalgic, since, via an inorganic medium, it is extracting personal memories carved into the mind.

After majoring in film at Osaka University of Arts, she specialized in media art at the Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences (IAMAS). She works mainly with video installations employing the animation technique rotoscoping. She won the Excellence Prize at the Japan Media Arts Festival Kyoto exhibition in 2011. In 2012, she took part in Yugo Nakamura’s “FRAMED” project. Her major exhibitions include “Being-in-the-Wired-World” (Kawasaki City Museum, 2013) and “Art of Memory” (Kitakyushu Municipal Museum of Art, 2015).
