Fanny Drugeon - Shimabuku
The transcription of a lecture by Fanny Drugeon on three installations by Japanese artist Shimabuku.
Shimabuku (born 1969 in Kobe) is an artist who travels the world in search of unusual encounters. Reconnecting with a transgressive Situationist aesthetic, he studied in Osaka and San Francisco before journeying through port cities worldwide, in Japan, Brazil, France, the Netherlands and the US. Shimabuku experiments with a range of possible interactions with the living world, pushing at its physical and imagined boundaries. His works create the conditions for poetic scenarios, documenting their genesis and material production. His performative, sometimes absurd or whimsical interventions refresh our perspective on the contemporary scene, which his works often seek to turn quite literally upside-down.
