Singapore Biennale 2019: Memento Stella

90 minutes (60 min + 30 min post show Q&A)

The Projector x Singapore Biennale presents:

MEMENTO STELLA by Takashi Makino

with Post-show Q&A

The Projector is proud to once again collaborate with renowned video artist and filmmaker Takashi Makino in presenting his latest, most seminal work - MEMENTO STELLA.

An epic, constellational visual masterpiece conceived as a reminder to 'remember the stars', Makino explores the beginnings of all phenomena in the shapeless universal field of primary matter not too different from the birth of stars and planets in the vortexes of space dust. Through frame-rate manipulation, super-imposition and multiple exposures - sometimes with up to 200 layered images at once - underscored by an equally majestic soundtrack, Makino conjures a truly cosmic cinematic experience that will continue to reverberate through each viewer long after leaving the cinema.

Don't miss a special post-show Q&A with artist Takashi Makino.


MAKINO Takashi (1978, Japan) is an artist and makes experimental films. He was educated in Cinematography at the Nihon University College of Art in Japan. In 2001, he served an apprenticeship with the Quay Brothers in London, during which he mainly studied film music and lighting. His short films Elements of Nothing (2008) and Generator (2012) have been selected for IFFR's short film competition, and with Generator Makino won a Tiger Award for Short Films. His films have been invited for screenings at numerous film and video art festivals worldwide. Makino's cinematic artworks have also been featured in Ryuichi Sakamoto's latest live performance of 'async' at the New York Park Avenue Armory.
