La Patinoire Royale-Galerie Valérie Bach - Booth A105
Yoshimi Futamura invites us to contemplate a nature made of bark, scales, ruptures and flaws, playing with the textures and colors of earth and fire.
Trong Gia Nguyen
Trong Gia Nguyen is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, New York. His work is concerned with examining and shaking structures of power as they relate to the dynamics of culture, politics, and economy. He has produced everything from iPhone applications (Metaphysical GPS) to installations, film, painting, sculpture, performances, and web-based actions.
Yuken Teruya filters his observations of contemporary life and his native Okinawa into elegant, evocative mixed-media installations, sculptures, and public art projects that speak of the shaping forces of consumerism, politics, and history. Using humble materials, like toilet paper rolls and pizza boxes, he crafts visions that reveal the disharmony between human beings and nature, and among ourselves. The delicacy and beauty of his works belie their critical edge. Trees reoccur throughout Teruya’s works. He has cut them out of toilet paper rolls and shopping bags, materials they were destroyed to create, symbolic of our over- abundant consumer culture and its disregard for nature.
