Born in 1981 in Ogi, Saga Prefecture. He majored in the Swahili Language at Osaka University of Foregin Studies and began working at the studio FOBOS in 2006. He has been working as a freelance photographer since 2009. In 2008, he started taking photographs of Ainu people living in Hokkaido. He published AINU, a photo book, in 2019. His latest solo exhibitions include SIRARIKA at the Gallery Studio 35 Minutes in Nakano-ku, Tokyo in 2018.
Born in 1982 in Chiba Prefecture. Exploring ways of perceiving landscapes visually and auditorily, he approaches environments around the world mainly with field recordings. Based on the materials and concepts he obtains at those locations, he creates installations, paintings, sound performances and music, which are presented both in Japan and abroad. He considers field recording as "meditative hunting" and investigates ambiguous relationships between humanity and nature.
Born in 1974 in Tokyo. After graduating from Musashino Art University, he was active in Berlin, Germany. He has participated in a wide range of exhibitions in Japan and abroad, starting with video art, installations and performances since 2018 while based in Tokyo. He produces a unique space employing the movement of lights.
Born in 1967 in Hokkaido. Active in Tokyo and Saitama. He lived two years in Madrid, Spain, from 1994 under the Agency for Cultural Affair’s Overseas Study Program for Artists. For 18 years since 1999, he produced a series of portrait paintings of Kazuo Ohno and his son, Yoshihito, both Butoh dancers. The series helped him to move away from the pursuit of realism, which is a return to the origins of painting, and toward placing greater emphasis on the reporting process itself.
Born in 1994 in Aomori Prefecture. Graduated from Akita University of Art. Currently he is studying at the Graduate School of Film and New Media, Tokyo University of the Arts. He creates video works that allow viewers to imagine the indigenous memories of an invisible existence lurking in the background of a series of static landscapes through a uniquely constructed narrative. He exhibited at “Media Practice 18-19” (in 2020 on the Yokohama campus of the Tokyo University of the Arts), among other activities.
