Suchan Kinoshita

Suchan Kinoshita (1960)

Lives in Maastricht. Works in Maastricht.

Change is a keyword in the work of Suchan Kinoshita. Her dynamic oeuvre is always evolving, making every encounter between object and spectator an unpredictable experience. Kinoshita considers every exhibition as part of a bigger whole, of which the outcome is not necessary and completely determined by the artist. The object itself, the space surrounding it and connection between the art object and the beholder are central elements in every exhibition of this artist. Kinoshita initially studied music and theatre. These influences are still major components in her work, which makes her work dynamic and interactive. Her work invites viewers to bridge art and theatre, architecture and music in participatory experience that emphasize movement, space and time. In her installations she creates a subtle interplay of objects, sound and spatial perception.
