Kishio Suga, a key figure in Japanese contemporary art, is one of the leading figures of the Mono-ha movement, whose artists explored the encounter between natural and indus­trial materials in the late 1960s and early 1970s. In his work, Suga investigates the physical presence and relationship of these combinations with the environment by building site-specific installations open to the possibility of fragmentation and ephemeral states. By employing organic and readymade materials, Suga creates intimate pieces sparked with improvisational energy that reflects the physical act of their construction.
