Ftarri / Ftarri Festival 2019

Kenichi Kanazawa

Sculptor. Born in Tokyo in 1956, Kenichi Kanazawa completed the graduate course at Tokyo University of the Arts in 1981. He creates geometrically configured constitutive works using industrial products as metal materials. He also produces works that connect the senses of sight, hearing and sound. These include "Fragments of Sound," which discovers new sounds from amorphously fused steel plates; and "State of Vibration," using Chladni figures, a physical phenomenon resulting from vibration. Kanazawa carries out exhibitions in art museums and galleries, performances, workshops, and collaborations with musicians. His major exhibitions include 'Laboratory 2, Resonating Space: Kenichi Kanazawa - Fragments of Sound" (Nitsu Art Museum, 2000); "Transfiguration of Steel: Kenichi Kanazawa" (Taro Okamoto Museum of Art, Kawasaki, 2002); "Art and Music" (Museum of Modern Art, Gunma, 2016); and "Scores - Sculpture, Music, Architecture" (Tokyo Art Museum, 2017).
