Kota Ezawa, 2000-2005
As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
Medley, specially created by Kota Ezawa for this program, mixes a number of his works.
Iconic events from film and television are redrawn as simple animations in these works to explore ideas of representation and the media's role in shaping our collective memory. Works include The Simpson Verdict (2002); Who's Afraid of Black, White and Grey (2003); Lennon, Sontag, Beuys (2004); and The Unbearable Lightness of Being (2005). Born in Cologne, Germany, Ezawa is now based in San Francisco. (program 12 mins., video)
