Ken Matsubara (JPN)


Doopsgezinde kerk

Ken Matsubara’s work explores the fluctuating manner of memories that reside deep within our consciousness. By working with mediums such as photographs and videos, Matsubara visually draws upon the reflective property of images to disclose the nature of memory as a form of interpenetration between the past and present. Furthermore, Matsubara believes such recollections are genetically inherent in our DNA, which contain vast knowledge from the past since antiq- uity extending beyond individual self.

The Japanse artist gives the viewer the mystery of how his poetic images come about, but above all they cause wonder and fascination. In Leeuwarden, these works form a unique connection with the serene historic environment of the Doopsgezinde Kerk.
