Film Still from Three Stories


10 years after immigrating from Japan where traditionally, carvings of Buddha were made from a single piece of wood, Eiko Fan’s wood sculpture reached a turning point. Eiko”s style evolved from this tradition to include flexible, inventive use of wood and body movements of mime and dance, encased in wooden costumes. Eiko then created a movie set in which her sculptural creatures could interact. Produced on 16mm film in 1981-1982 in collaboration with Rudy Burckhardt, a very well known photographer/filmmaker from New York, this film is a time capsule of Eiko”s life 35 years ago. Eiko later went on to perform “Live Wood Sculpture” performances internationally and even included her children in this production.

Artist Eiko Fan will be present for a post-screening Q&A and a presentation on her work.
