We are excited to present special works by interdisciplinary artist Nobuho Nagasawa as part of Fabrik Expo 2016.
Born in Tokyo, and raised in Europe and Japan, Nobuho Nagasawa received her MFA at Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. Nagasawa came to the United States as a visiting scholar at the invitation of the California Institute of the Arts in 1986, where she studied visual art, critical theory and music. Now residing in New York, Nobuho Nagasawa is an interdisciplinary artist whose site-specific works explore the places, politics, ecology and psychological dimensions of space and people. They emphasize both natural elements, such as earth, air, water, and fire, and biological elements, such as heartbeat, and body movement, transforming these elements into other mediums such as light, sound, and interactive movement by the use of technology. Her work involves in-depth research into cultural history and memory, with extensive community participation.
Nagasawa’s exhibition history includes the Royal Garden of the Prague Castle in the Czech Republic, Ludwig Museums in Germany and Hungary, Rufino Tamayo Museum in Mexico, the Getty Center for the History of Art and Humanities in the United States, Alexandria Library in Egypt, as well as exhibitions in Denmark, Italy, United States, and Japan. She has been represented in numerous international venues including the Asian Art Biennial (Bangladesh, 2002), International Art Biennial (Egypt, 2002, 2004, 2005), Sharjah Biennial (United Arab Emirates, 2003), Echigo-Tsumari Triennial (Japan, 2003) and Sinop Biennial (Turkey, 2006). Nagasawa has been commissioned for more than 20 public art projects in California, Washington, Texas, New York, Berlin and Japan, and is the recipient of several design awards.
