` Obata Taku

Obata Taku

In a year which celebrates the potential of Japan’s capital city, Tokyo, Japan House London is delighted to display the new work of artist and break dancer Obata Taku from Friday 28 February to Monday 6 April 2020.

A graduate from Tokyo University of the Arts (Tokyo Geidai), Obata Taku explores the tension and dynamism of the human body taking inspiration from his background as a B-BOY. His work investigates the relationship between the human body and clothes by life-size figures without a pedestal and in pursuit of space, colour and power.

Japan House London hosts a series of events to accompany the display in The Shop:

28 Feb 2020: Display Opening

11 Mar 2020: Talk by Obata Taku

14 Mar 2020: Drawing Demonstration by Obata Taku

4 Apr 2020: Carving Demonstration by Obata Taku
