press release

The Hirshhorn's new black box space for film and video works on the lower level opens in November with the art of Hiraki Sawa. He began to develop a series of black-and-white digital video works set in his apartment while still a graduate student. This selection highlights three single-screen shorts: Dwelling, 2002-04; Migration, 2003; and Elsewhere, 2003. Sawa's visual poetry includes tea pots that sprout legs and toy planes that magically fly from room to room.
