Christian Houge Pachinko, Tokyo “Okurimono”, 2007
Through several trips to Japan, Christian Houge has been exploring the country’s otherworldly subculture and its ritualistic perfection. He has ventured into delicate themes such as personal identity, sexuality, longing, and gender dysphoria in this personal art documentary.
“I want to ask the viewer questions and provoke a reflection on topics that are often seen as taboos in our contemporary societies. The viewer’s own associations are important in appreciating this work where ambiguity plays an important role”. Says Houge.
