Period & Style
YBCA Curator Julio Cesar Morales talks with Koki Tanaka at YBCA. Koki is a mixed-media artist who uses video and found objects to create iconic reflections of everyday life. Combining humor with social criticism, he manipulates everyday objects in their surroundings, releasing them from any utilitarian function they may have to create an entirely new meaning. Using banal objects in a playful way, Tanaka disrupts conventional relations between objects and challenges our preconceived notions about them to create a new and different aesthetic experience for the viewer.
