Jesse Kanda
"When you’re a kid, you have an endless imagination. When I come up with that first spark for an idea, it reminds me of playing with toys."
Jesse Kanda is a digital artist and the collaborator of London‑based Venezuelan electronic musician, Arca. Born in Japan and raised in Canada, he now lives in London. His films have been described by Dazed & Confused as "a mindf**king trip through the subconscious in which images of dancing dead babies and victims of alien car crashes contort then distort, lost in purgatory. The self‑taught, Dalston‑based artist’s world is pained yet playful, and apparently untainted by boundaries. Nothing seems impossible." For MIF15, Kanda and artist and musician Arca bring their unique concert show to the Halle St Peters.
