Judo Saga 4

Judo Saga in Tokyo

75 years after Judo Saga, Akira Kurosawa’s first full length, Judo Saga 3 is a project dealing with the heritage of Judo and its impact on visual arts. The exhibition imagined by Frédéric Dialynas Sanchez offers to the audience a new vision of geometric abstraction.

Guided by Master Jigoro Kano’s motto: “Minimum effort, maximum efficiency,” and following Yves Klein’s steps as a judoka, Frédéric Dialynas Sanchez, have conducted research on dojos across the world. This exploration has led him to the Judo Club of Nice, the School of Paris, the Bushido Kwai Gymnasium in Madrid, and the Kodokan Judo Institute in Tokyo.

Including a set of Dialynas Sanchez recent paintings, Judo Saga 3 also presents some collaborations made with other artists, featuring: Jean-Sébastien Grill, Sébastien Leseigneur and Cyril Porchet.

The project, including different mediums, dives into the history of the monochrome and of judo, producing a dialogue between photography and painting, vintage video games and geometric abstraction, domestic architecture and minimal art.
