Tamura Yuichiro

  • Born 1977 in Toyama, Japan.
  • Based in Kyoto, Japan.

Tamura Yuichiroʼs work unfolds from existing images and objects, and reflects an interdisciplinary approach to various media, including photography, video, installation, performance, and theater. He creates multilayered narratives containing a mixture of fact and fiction and based on a wide range of sources, from indigenous historical themes to well-known popular subjects. New interpretations and readings are bestowed upon original histories and memories, transcending spaces and time and asking what it means to be “contemporary.”

Recently, Tamura has held solo exhibitions at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery (2019; New Plymouth, Aotearoa New Zealand), Kyoto City University of Arts Art Gallery @KCUA (2018; Japan) and participated in international exhibitions such as Yokohama Triennale 2020 (Japan), 2019 Asian Art Biennial(Taichung, Taiwan), Busan Biennale 2018 (South Korea), and SeMA Biennale Mediacity Seoul 2014 (South Korea).
