Artist

Hikaru Fujii

Hikaru Fujii creates video installations that respond to contemporary social problems. He makes use of extensive research and fieldwork investigating existing systems and structures, based on the idea that art is produced out of the intimate relationship between society and history. Rather than presenting his research into past events just as it is, he has continued to use his work to attempt reinterpretations of the issues from contemporary perspectives.

Hikaru Fujii has exhibited work at National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul; and Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens, among others.
