“The flowing river never stops and yet the water never stays the same.”

Born in Kyoto in 1981, Tsuyoshi Hisakado completed an M.F.A. at the Department of Sculpture of Kyoto University of Arts in 2007. He formed the artist group SHINCHICA in 2002 while he was in university, taking charge of sound and installation. From this background, the two elements ‘sound’ and ‘sculpture’ are the main features in Hisakado’s art creation.
I was recently invited to attend Tsuyoshi Hisakado’s new ‘Quantize’ sonic installation at Ota Fine Arts in Tokyo – an exploration of sound, light and kinetic energy, as well as redefining our idea of what sculpture should entail.
