Berlin’s 3hd Festival and Tokyo-based EBM(T) Gallery are combining forces to work on インフラ INFRA 2017 in Tokyo, running August 19 to 26.

An ambitious festival of art, music, and thought in the digital age, the program unfolds in museums, galleries, clubs, and online.

Artists

Hitoyo Nakano

Hitoyo is a hive mind which is based on the data from the Twitter account “SAZAE BOT” or an anonymous virtual artist who calls oneself “A time traveler from 2061”.

Johanna Odersky

Johanna Odersky is a Frankfurt-based artist who currently studying Fine Arts at Städelschule. In her sculptural work, Odersky is interested in the silhouettes separating the inside from the outside, and the mechanisms emerging from them: inclusion, exclusion and domestication. Thinking of exteriority as a form of resistance to contemporary claustrophobia, she simultaneously tries to build up and to break thoughts and their borders. A circular movement, in which one does not get closer to an exact definition, but instead is led to inexhaustible regress.

Tomoko Sauvage

Tomoko Sauvage, Japanese musician and artist, investigates the sculpturality of sound and improvisation in relation to the environment. Mainly known for a musical / visual research about ‘natural synthesizer’ of her invention, composed with diverse fluid, bowls, ceramic, light and underwater amplification, Sauvage’s approach is attached to questions of alchemy, meditation and balance between hazard and mastery. Under the form of performances, installations and musical compositions, her work is regularly presented in Europe, Asia and America.
