Kenji Yamada

Kenji Yamada is an artist who carries out social practice and activities to share conflicts and paradoxes within international society. These conflicts and paradoxes emerge from application and misuse of ethnographical wisdoms, remains and modern heritages, including war ruins in a particular cultural area. He complexly questions undifferentiated historical views and public interest by cooperating with citizens to publicize and reveal historical artifacts that have been buried by the construction of public spaces to society.

Kenji Yamada has exhibited at 3331 Arts Chiyoda, Tokyo; Yang Art Museum, Beijing; and Morgue Gallery, Chelsea College of Arts, London, among others.
