> Directors Lounge presents: a summer evening with Yoko Hata a.k.a. GUP-py

> august 10th 10pm Yoko Hata / GUP-py at Rote Loge
Simon-Dachstrasse 22, (next to Revalerstrasse)

Yoko Hata, founder of GUP-py, presents her recent work on video at Rote Loge. In her videos, Yoko Hata combines animations, text and camera images with her poetical reflections on the world. The vernacular, daily life as well as art and architecture become themes of her stories. With her witty talent, she uses raw models of advertisement, documentary and educational formats to amalgamate a vision of a sweet (honey) world, both charming and uncanny. A (mostly female) sweet Japanese voice-over seduces the viewer to follow the artist GUP-py into her artificial, sometimes ideal half-world.
Klaus W. Eisenlohr

Take Me To The Mellarium (Nimm mich mit ins Mellarium), 2003, 07' 52''

"Kommen Sie ins Mellarium!"

"Das Honigtier kann nur der sehen, der es auch sehen will.
Aber was tun, wenn es nicht erscheint?
Dann besuchen Sie das Mellarium!
Dort gibt es all die Honigtiere!
Nach Ihrem Wunsch sind die Honigtiere fuer Sie da."

GUP-py (Yoko Hata) will be present for Q&A

In 1995 GUP-py was founded in Berlin on the initiative of Japanese artist Yoko Hata. Since then GUP-py has expanded to a group working in the different fields – contemporary art, movie, book editing and graphic design.
