[Featured Artists]
Painter: Akiko Nakayama
AKIKO NAKAYAMA is a painter who brings pictures to life by combining the energy of movement and the vibrancy of colors to make various materials react with each other. Characterized by their strong performative elements, her paintings, such as her “Alive Painting” series, which involves constant metamorphosis, and her “Still Life” series, which visualizes and solidifies the process of filtering the resulting waste liquid, are constantly being created. The works, in which various mediums and colors are blended together in a lively, ever-changing manner, resemble improvisational poetry. Viewers are transported into this poetic landscape, guided by the projection of self, living things, nature, and the like. In recent years, Nakayama has performed at various events, including TEDxHaneda, Ars Electronica Fes (Austria), MUTEK Montreal, and the closing ceremony of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Musician: Kiyoshi Izumi
Born in Kagawa Prefecture in 1968, KIYOSHI IZUMI is an artist who freely remixes sounds and images to create works on the theme of the five senses in daily life. He creates paintings, sculptures, videos, clothing, food, and other works primarily using the sampling method. Since holding his first solo exhibition in 1990, he has participated in numerous exhibitions and performances. At the same time, he has pursued activities related to sound and music, collaborating with many local and international musicians. After releasing his debut CD through a Britsih label (Reflex) in 1997, IZUMI went on to put out solo albums in 2000, 2004, and 2016. In addition, he released albums in 2011 under the name aSymMedley and in 2019 under the name MIRAIGAMILL. He participates in many other compilations and remixes music, while also serving food and running a gallery based in “SOMA,” having launched his own music label, bitSOMA, in 2015.
