Koki Tanaka op IFFR
Koki TANAKA (1975, Japan) is an artist. His art practice is diverse, with mediums such as video, photography, site-specific installation and interventional projects. In his early object-oriented works, he experimented with ordinary objects to explore the possible escape from everyday routine. In later works, Tanaka asked participants to collectively navigate tasks that are out of the ordinary, and documents the unconscious behaviours of people when confronting unusual situations - such as playing a piano with five pianists at once. He has since produced works that focus on the relationality that arises between human beings in collective acts that lack a fixed destination. His work has been exhibitioned worldwide. In 2013, Tanaka received a Special Mention for National Participation at the 55th Venice Biennale. His project Vulnerable Histories (A Road Movie) (2018) will be featured at IFFR.
