DNK Days 2018

Exhibition #1

Yutaka Makino
Displacement
at PuntWG

Opening Sunday 18 February 15:00 - 20:00
Daily 13:00 to 19:00 until Saturday February 24th

Yutaka Makino has undertaken several projects in the past years that provide acoustically and visually conditioned environments in which processes of perception are made tangible to the perceivers and reflections on the acts of perception are provoked. All the elements employed in a space are intertwined and interact with each other, so that the interdependence of behavior and counter-behavior of the elements sets the visitors’ perceptual transformations in perpetual motion.

The setup of Makino’s new piece Displacement functions like an experimental setup that consists of multiple components including the physical presence of the visitor in the space. There is auditory stimulation that masks almost all the acoustic features of the space. Additionally, an optokinetic stimulator is used to produce an unstable visual environment in which spatial references are constantly disrupted. Commonly used as a rehabilitation apparatus to reduce the visual dependencies of subjects for example with balance disorders or vertigo, here optokinetic stimuli are used in such a way that instabilities in orientation are induced and our dependency on visual references is put to a test. For the visitor, any gesture of other visitors becomes another spatial reference that conflicts with the output from the optokinetic device. The individual experiences of the visitors will emerge from this interference of the conflicting references.

DNK Days 2018 is a new series produced by DNK-Amsterdam. It highlights the integration of adventurous music, performance, sound art, and contemporary thinking around these disciplines. Between February and August 2018 we will present 20 events in collaboration with De Appel, San Serriffe, Theater Perdu, Punt WG and Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, hosting a range of national and international artists. These concerts, project presentations, performance lectures and exhibitions will attempt to nurture a thriving community in Amsterdam and re-establish a regular and critical stage where a cross section of new music, artistic and theoretical practices are presented to encourage continuing dialogue among both audience and practitioners. Please join us for these days.

DNK-Days 2018 is supported by Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst, Mondriaan Fonds, Fonds Podiumkunsten, STEIM, Urban Resort.
