KIYOMI+TETSUHIRO UOZUMI

about us

 We are Tetsuhiro and Kiyomi Uozumi, and we have been making art together since 2005. We have been living in Berlin since 2007.
Our artistic work includes installations, drawings and objects.
 We use light, sound and everyday items, that have no use anymore, which we collect in the area of the exhibition venue, to create our work. Our interest lies in producing art, that refers to the current location. After doing research on site, we interpret the gained information according to our own set of rules and arrange everything to an installation.

Our research is based on the following three points:
--There are meaningless fragments, that avoid being interpreted and understood.
--Objects and sounds, that nobody notices anymore, disappear slowly.
--“The hidden reality is much deeper than the world we created with our thoughts.”
      Kuni Yanagida, Japanese ethnologist and author (1875-1962)

In other words, we collect the things, that have lost their value and meaning within society and correct them, as if they have been mistakes. We hope that the resulting artwork is being well received and enjoyed by the visitor.
