With a career spanning thirty years, Shinro Ohtake is considered one of the most important figure in contemporary Japanese Art. He works in all mediums encompassing, drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, video, and music, but by far his most preferred method is collage, by cutting and pasting. Using found image from mass media and the scraps of urban culture, Shinro is working on a project called Scrapbooks, and ongoing series which he began back in 1977. So far he has amassed a total of sixty-six individual pieces, which he last showcased at the Venice Biennale 2013.
Now Ohtake has come to London's Parasol Unit on Wharf Road, which will not only explore his latest scrapbook, but also other works, such as his Radio Head Surfer statue and Time Memory 28 painting. The exhibition is free to visit, and open until the 12th December.
