まだら ー madara

(8:23) -- Music – 2019, Video – 2021

 

Being pretty, womanly, only to be stolen and buried by others for greed. We appear and disappear, come back and go away. まだら – madara is a lament for the dead and alive whose souls have been taken away. The word “Madara” is a Japanese word metaphorically indicating a phenomenon that is sometimes appearing and sometimes not appearing. The musical composition was created in 2019. I created the video for "Sanctuary, a Performance."

The video component of this work was originally developed as part of the "Sanctuary" performance in collaboration with Ana-Maurine Lara, Akiko Hatekayama, Courtney Desiree Morris and Rosamond S. King, under the artistic direction of D'Lo.
