[Hidetaka Furukawa]

Hidetaka Furukawa always expresses himself using a wide variety of materials - implements, diaries, biology and music, without sticking to any particular style. In recent years, he has expanded a series named “CULTIVATE” which portrays land as the subject. Discovering the identity of the region from historical documents and fieldwork, and shining a spotlight on forgotten people and events, the series has become one of the pillars of his activity. He has handled many conceptual three-dimensional works, but is also noted for works in two dimensions which freely manipulate Japanese and Western styles.
