Coffee & Conversations with Shinro Ohtake

Join Shinro Ohtake and Chief Printer Eitaro Ogawa for a casual afternoon as the artist takes us through his multimedia practice. While his oeuvre includes drawing, painting, sculpture and photography, as well as large-scale assemblage pieces and experimental music and videos, it is his activity of collage that appears to be most characteristic of his artistic expression. Much of his work utilises found objects, images and scraps from urban culture and mass media, often with reference to the underground music culture. He is best known for his ongoing series of ‘Scrapbooks’ – an extensive presentation having been shown at the 2013 Venice Biennale, as part of the “Encyclopaedic Palace”.
