Takehito Koganezawa’s understated video animations, based on his drawings of figures and abstract shapes, often tackle the largest of themes with the humblest of means. His works in all media express a chasm between dailiness and an ever-lurking void. This volume is published for his 2012 exhibition at the Haus am Waldsee in Berlin.

A void lies at the center of Takehito Koganezawa's work. "I really want to see nothingness in an exact way. But what I can find has always meaning. So I try to wash out the meaning from an object," says the artist. With minimal deception Koganezawa reveals surreal interpretations of the everyday world which, when crossed with the artist's own emotional inner world allows an exciting range of "mental dreamworlds" to emerge. A comprehensive study of Koganezawa's video works and drawings.
