Takeshi Murata

Edited with text by Dan Nadel. Text by Lauren Cornell. Interview by Alex Gartenfeld.

Takeshi MurataTakeshi Murata (born 1975) first became known as an early innovator of "datamoshing," a form of "glitch art" that requires compressing two videos together until their respective pixels merge into one mashed-up picture. Since then, inspired by Giorgio de Chirico and traditional 17th-century Dutch and Flemish painting, Murata's work has ventured into the realm of hyper-realism in a series of uncanny prints and videos that explore our inner and exterior lives via everything from B-grade horror film imagery to relics of a 1980s childhood. Part monograph and part artist's book, Takeshi Murata includes an essay by New Museum curator Lauren Cornell, an interview with the artist conducted by Alex Gartenfeld, Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, and an essay by Dan Nadel.

Detail is reproduced from Takeshi Murata.

Takeshi Murata

"Cyborg," from Takeshi Murata's 2011 Get Your Ass to Mars series, is reproduced from the new monograph by Salon 94, Ratio 3 and Kunsthall Stavanger - launching tonight at the Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg. "The relationship between alienation and desire is one I find especially relevant, both in the culture and personally," Murata says. "It's also tied closely to the advancement of technology. I think this may be why I was initially drawn to CG animation. It enters my work as subject and object. I want the renderings and prints to be pristine. Using the same tools as commercial ad agencies, I can employ similar tactics in my image-making. But the objects are reduced, often just to bare forms, placed in spaces that obfuscate their original purpose, then rendered in HD photorealistic light to accentuate their perfections. The response the images gives me feels like something close to desire and alienation simultaneously." continue to blog

Takeshi Murata

Takeshi Murata

"Early in its life, every new medium goes through a period of wild experimentation when its more mystical or psychological aspects are explored, as are the productive ways it can be used differently than originally intended. This is the territory in which Takeshi Murata’s work operates. He is the rare artist who works at the edge of technological innovation—In this case, digital animation—with a subversive spirit. His videos inquire into what material or emotional prisms can be opened up when media is used against itself, or in unusual ways. His earlier works contain a distinctly hypnotic quality—something akin to magic or illusion—and a dense questioning about the possibilities for digital images. A tangible pathos also emerges from his swirling pools of pixels or pulsating colors and it gains a sharper articulation in his later animations when characters take realistic forms." –Lauren Cornell
