Temple I

Georg Jagunov’s Temple video works focuses on a number of animated architectural structures that for the majority are submerged in heavy shadow. Reflecting upon time as a mode of machinery, Jagunov’s darkened animation represents for the artist a bridge between higher heaven, earth, and the underworld. In Temple I, what appears to be isolated elevators scale the length of two towers, shuttling their contents to their next destination. The Temple series of carefully constructed collages are made up of many photographs and video fragments collected by Jagunov whilst traveling. The collection’s title Hierarchy of Concealment is a phrase from Arata Isozaki’s book Japan-ness In Architecture, in which he refers to Ise Jingu, the most holy shrine of Shinto religion, which is completely rebuilt every twenty years following a series of secret rituals.
