MASATAKA CONTEMPORARY was launched in January 2013. Our mission is to introduce and encourage emerging talents that we felt in love with. We explore artists and their work across various media that meet our two criteria; creativity and independence.
When I was a child, I used to travel back and forth between two worlds.
I used to be repeatedly hospitalized, so my mother made many big dolls for my comfort.
They were both my friends and my alter egos.
I got the way to distract my loneliness through them in a fantasy world.
There were always in a forest.
My creation starts after conversations with the past.
I put cut-out records inside objects chosen at random and having different eras and cultures, then records becomes vague,
and unexpected dramas begin to assert.
That is similar to our life because we always select something in chaos.
I really enjoy accidental chemical reactions around inorganic aggregate.
