Lives and works in Japan.
“In my art, I express the smells, presences and passage of time perceived by humans through
their skin’s tactile awareness, I have presented my works in art spaces and galleries in a variety
of locations. Beginning with a video installation presented in 2003, I have expanded the scope
of my activities to include music, performances, and direction of image-based media for theater.”
Some Work Examples:
About ‘A Priori’:
It was when I realized that this building breathes in the same way I do that I began.
In this old Japanese house where I was born and raised, in its walls, floors and pillars, in the darkness of its corners are immersed repeated over the ages before I existed, and before long, the house was breathing, just like a living thing. And then that breath crept into my mind through my skin, and became one with the flow of my thoughts.
I look at the spots and wrinkles that have appeared on my own body with age, now very familiar to me, like the petals of a flower or the surface or shape of a tree trunk changing with the passing of time, and I deduce a common element.
A person carries with him his own background, and with that emotions that accumulate, and then scatter, or settle at the bottom of his heart. By intertwining human and plant shapes,
I want to express the movable and uncertain, as well as the unchangeable, aspects of all living things.” YM
