Tokyo Wonder Site , Izanami , animation , Japan , stop-motion
Izanami is a new stop-motion animation inspired from my research of Japanese traditions of still-life and vanitas. I have used the shape of the narrative from the Kojiki origin myth of Izanami and Izanagi to choreograph the movement of the animated objects. Izanami and Izanagi are deities that created the eight islands of Japan. The sound is created by Yokohama-based artist Nao Nishihara. This project was made possible thanks to a residency at Tokyo Wonder Site in Japan and the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres de Quebec. Animation: Elisabeth Belliveau, sound: Nao Nishihara.
