Biography

Simon Fujiwara’s work deploys the power of art to sustain rather than explain the mysteries of the human condition. In his ambitious and diverse practice––working intuitively across performance, painting, video, sculpture, and installation––people, technology, images, and objects are tools used to paint a compelling and fragmented portrait of the 21st century. Recognized for his early well known performances and videos marked by their distinct rich and contradictory narratives centered around his personal experience, Fujiwara continues to explore how systems seemingly divergent as the political, the biological, the industrial, all work to structure the personal. Rather than accepting the impossibility of individual agency, his work insists on the power of the individual in an increasingly corporatized, global world.
