Shinjuku Station

Shinjuku Station 1974

The Shinjuku district was the epicentre of Tokyo's art scene and the political fever pitch where protests took place on a regular basis during the 1960s. Jonouchi's compilation footage of the area defies documentary imagery and transforms itself into something altogether more poetically subjective, attempting to capture the chaos of the location through his camerawork and editing. In 1974, Jonouchi projected images of the past onto himself whilst reciting Dada-influenced and virtually inaudible poetry generating a cacophony of images and sounds, drawing from and participating in the maelstrom of political and artistic expression during the era.
