About the work
Satoshi Hirose
Japanese, b. 1963
Follow

Satoshi Hirose’s practice touches on a variety of mediums and methods, including architectural constructions, environmental interventions, performances, sculpture, photography, and drawing. His projects are lengthy undertakings, sometimes executed over the course of years. One of his best known installations, Island: an existence of nine years (2002-11), is constructed from bottle caps the artist collected for almost a decade. The materials used in Hirose’s works are often unremarkable in themselves—like lemons, chocolates, spices, paper, money, cloth, salt, or beans—but become protagonists and symbols in narratives about history, memory, and culture. In Hirose’s own words, his art is “defined as an art that invents […] a unique aesthetic code or behavior by rearranging small fragments.”
