Masaharu Futoyu

The theme for my artwork is investigating the role of creative activities in public. By using art intervention in the social system and recalibrating its syntax, those acitivities can cause a sense of discomfort like bugs in our daily life.

After graduating from the Tokyo University of the Arts, Masaharu Futoyu (b. in Okayama) has been participating in numerous exhibitions around the world. Selected exhibition include Sapporo Art Stage (Sapporo, 2017), Think of ENERGY, Federal Foreign Office (Berlin, 2014), Seoul Art Space GEUMCHEON (Seoul, 2014), 2:46 and thereafter (PEPCO’s Edison Place Gallery, Washington D.C., 2012), Roppongi Art Night (Tokyo Midtown, Tokyo, 2012). Selected awards include Art Project Ideas (Hiroshima MOCA, 2010), Locker Gallery at Tokyo National Museum (Tokyo, 2007), Tokyo Midtown Award (Tokyo, 2008), the 9th Media Art Festival, Jury Selections (Tokyo, 2005).

The chocolate wrapping paper reminded me of a relief. The wrinkled paper presented a trace of what had been wrapped inside.

In this series of work, I folded the origami paper creating a lot of shapes (from crane, kabuto helmet that I must have folded in my childhood, to unidentifiable shapes that can’t even be called a thing). I then rendered traces on the folded paper as if something had been wrapped inside.

By repeating the process over and over again, numbers of unrelated images were layered on the origami paper, formulating something that resembles a painting.
