Tsubaki's World - An Artist Talk by Noboru Tsubaki

About

Noboru Tsubaki is a contemporary artist who has been active on the world stage since the 1970s. His super-sized installations, such as the giant locust which was part of the Yokohama Triennale in 2001, are immediately eye catching and leave a lasting impression. However, despite this instant and easy engagement with viewers, the intention of his works is much more complicated than may first appear. As an artist who is constantly conscious of the relationship between art and society, Noboru's rejection of pre-established harmony has inspired works in a number of media. He has used installations and digital applications to challenge the status quo, including the current position of Japanese contemporary art. In this event, Noboru will illustrate his unique and radical world, his approach to art and society, and his thoughts about the interaction between Japanese contemporary art and subculture. He will also present his latest work which will be exhibited at September's Pestival event celebrating insects in art.
