Artist Talk by Nobuko Tsuchiya

Nobuko Tsuchiya is a Japanese artist best recognized for her eclectic sculptures, seemingly freely assembled almost entirely out of discarded scraps of familiar household objects such as plastic tubing, disused cables, mop buckets and even a disused bath tub. Having studied art at the Accademia di Belle Arte in Florence and Goldsmiths, University of London, she has since exhibited internationally, with her first major show at the 50th Venice Biennale, and most recently with Roppongi Crossing 2019 at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo.

In conjunction with her solo exhibition at the Leeds Art Gallery as part of Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 which the Japan Foundation proudly supports, Nobuko Tsuchiya will reveal what particular elements of an everyday object attract her when putting together her pieces, as well as her process in unlocking the potential of an object as a storyteller. She will also talk about her journey to the international stage of art, explaining what she wishes to convey when turning her objects into enigmatic sculptures.

Date: 28 June 2019 from 6.30pm
Venue: Impact Hub King’s Cross, 34b York Way, King’s Cross, N1 9AB London
