About the artist
Resourceful and ceaselessly inventive, Japanese artist Tetsuya Umeda has for years been creating installations and performances by repurposing objects and deploying them to highly eccentric ends. Umeda’s work focuses on the creation of rich and dynamic environments through the combination of architectural structures, sound and light, and their impact on human perception.
Often operating outside of the gallery environment, Umeda has collaborated with artists in various mediums, including music and theatre both in Asia, Europe and America. In theatre context, he has been exploring ideas of deterritorialisation and spatial relationals. His recent performance works include a night boat cruise tour piece “7 Ships” (Osaka, 2016), “Internship” (Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, 2016 / TPAM 2018, Kanagawa Arts Theater, 2018), “Composite” (Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Brussels, 2017), “Ringo” (Liveworks2017, Sydney, 2017, Munchner Kammerspiele, Munich 2018, Push festival, Vancouver 2019), and “Water Running Upwards” (Wiesbaden Biennale, Wiesbaden, 2018).
