Working in video and performance\, Meiro Koizumi (Japanese\, b. 1976) has built a compelling body of work that deals with power dynamic s on scales from the familial to the national\, and examines questions of p olitical and psychological control. Implicating himself\, his performers\, and the viewer through choreographed emotional manipulations\, Koizumi crea tes works that straddle the uncomfortable and indefinable line between crue lty and comedy. His first solo museum presentation in the United States\, < i>Projects 99 includes a selection of earlier projects\, as well as Defect in Vision (2011)\, Meiro’s most ambitious and accomplished proje ct to date. Probing the idea of blindness—both philosophical and physical—t he piece is projected on two sides of a single screen\, preventing the view er from taking in both views at once. The action follows two performers who repeatedly enact a domestic scene set during World War II. While staged in the historical past\, the scene’s portent of impending catastrophe has tak en on a new relevance following the Fukushima nuclear disaster\, in a work that is incisive\, thought-provoking\, and visually lush.
