Taking Away
Eginhartz Kanter (DE)
video, 2018, 6:42

The video shows surprisingly quiet streets in Tokyo at night. The nocturnal peace is interrupted by an unexpected intervention. A strange object shifts the appearance of the uncanny and seemingly apocalyptic nightly streets. It disturbs the peaceful order of the well-kept neighbourhood.

Eginhartz Kanter (AT/DE), born 1984, studied Fine Arts, Cultural Studies and Photography at the University of Arts and Design Linz, the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Lyon. He works with video and photography, mainly in the context of public space. In his artistic approach he questions the boundaries and conventions of everyday life and living environments. His (sub)urban interventions negotiate aspects of the public and often have a direct relation to architecture. He showed his artworks in Gallery 5020 in Salzburg, Peresvetov Pereulok Gallery in Moscow, and S.Y.P. Artspace in Tokyo.
