Voyage de Hokusai(北斎の旅) (Journey of Hokusai)

Video work

SHIRIAGARI Kotobuki [Japan]


This short movie was commissioned by the ARTE TV network for the Hokusai exhibition that was held at the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais in Paris in late 2014 and early 2015. The Edo painter KATSUSHIKA Hokusai is shown humorously maneuvering a dancing brush to the melody of Erik SATIE’s composition Je te veux across a horizontal scroll in this animated rotoscope-style work full of handmade touches.
