2011 – 2012
- Satoru Tamura (Japanese b.1972) is a multimedia artist who creates kinetic sculptures, videos, and installations. His artwork is based on the theme “destruction of meaning”. He seeks to create a pure, white concept with no background. He tries to stay liberated from the meaning, origin and purpose of the chosen material and form. When these are ignored or lost, the object will only be "the object". This is often meant to evoke laughter, as the viewer realizes that ‘it is what it is’.
In his first solo exhibition in Berlin, a large installation and several small works from the series ‘Point of Contact’ would be exhibited. The works dramatically show us intermittent blinks of light bulbs caused by unstable contact of their unique on-off switches. But his “point of contact” only represents the phenomenon itself.
Do not miss the Tamura's significant debut in Berlin.
