continuum: Independent animation from Japan and Australia

Exhibition

Discover the boundless possibilities of the animation medium in The Japan Foundation, Sydney’s upcoming exhibition continuum: Independent animation from Japan and Australia. Featuring 14 vibrant and subtly subversive works of contemporary animation from independent filmmakers in Japan and Australia, this exhibition diverges from mainstream animation, offering viewers an insight into the unique forms of storytelling from each country. The exhibition will be held at The Japan Foundation Sydney, Gallery from February 18, 2022 to July 2, 2022.

Curated by Deborah Szapiro (University of Technology Sydney) and Honami Yano (Nagoya University), continuum features recent video works from award-winning filmmakers including Kōji Yamamura and Jilli Rose, as well as animation studio PAW Media and social enterprise Tjanpi Desert Weavers. Presented alongside the collection of films are 3D objects, sketches and other media that document the laborious and intricate processes of animation production.

Through the works featured in this exhibition, attendees will be able to explore the continuum of human connections, through untold and underrepresented narratives.

An event program featuring film screenings, workshops, talks and a catalogue launch will run in conjunction with the exhibition. Details TBA.
