Hiraki Sawa's animated videos explore unexpected worlds and the interweaving of the domestic and imaginary spaces.
Inspired by a strong and enduring interest in depth psychology, dreams, and the realm of memory, Sawa Hiraki (born 1977 in Ishikawa, Japan, currently based in London) produces videos interweaving the real and fictitious that have been presented at exhibitions around the world. Installations composed of elaborate multi-screen arrangements showing multiple videos offer a mesmerizing visual experience that also makes the viewer conscious of their own physicality, and express rich interior worlds where memory, emotion, and sensation converge.
Sawa Hiraki has exhibited in international exhibitions such as the Biennale of Sydney (2010), Biennale de Lyon (France, 2013), Reborn Art Festival (Miyagi, Japan, 2017), Taiwan International Video Art Exhibition (Taipei, 2020) among others. His museum presentations include the Nam June Paik Art Center (Seoul, 2014), 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa (Japan, 2018), Vincom Centre for Contemporary Art (Hanoi, 2018) and the University Museum of Navarra (Spain, 2019). In 2016, participated in the exhibition Roppongi Crossing 2016: My Body, Your Voice at the Mori Art Museum.
This is Hiraki Sawa's third exhibition with us, twice with Roaming Room in Marylebone in 2017 and Kennington in 2019. Now we are delighted to be showing him at postROOM in Islington in 2023
