Yasuhiro Suzuki is an artist who was born in 1979. He continues to question our views on the world through works that take fresh looks at things we are accustomed to seeing in everyday life. He produces art that infinitely expands our perception and awareness through the medium of familiar articles, as exemplified by "Perspective of the Globe Jungle", a video installation using playground equipment from a park, and "Zip-Fastener Ship", which “opened up" the Seto Inland Sea. He exhibited works inside and outside Japan at museums, in public space on commissions, and other venues. He has been invited to show his works at numerous exhibitions and art festivals in Japan and abroad, including Ars Electronica Festival, “Thermocline of ArtNew Asian Waves (ZKM, Karlsruhe, 2007) , “The 4th Moscow Biennale" (ARTPLAY, TSUM, Moscow, 2011), London Design Biennale 2016. His main solo exhibitions were "Neighborhood Globe" at Art Tower Mito in 2014, "Spontaneous Garden" at Hakone Open-Air Museum in 2017, and "BLINKING" at Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art in Israel in 2021. He gives form to things hidden from the eye at the particular place and focuses on scenes that arise through chance encounters with visitors.
