Soichi Yamaguchi

Born in 1983 in Chiba Prefecture. In 2010 he graduated from the Tokyo National University of the Arts Graduate School.
He won the Gold and Hiromiyoshii prizes at GEISAI # 9 in 2006, while he was still studying at university.
He has participated in, and exhibited at venues in Japan and abroad, such as the 2008 Moscow Biennale and the Hong Kong Art Fair.
His work originates in things, captured visually, that he has personal experience of as unstable, changing, optical illusions. He mesmerizes viewers with vivid, brilliant colors and his mechanism of pop motifs that come and go in a 2D and 3D space, in this way he shakes and jolts our visual senses.

EUKARYOTE is an art space which has been established in Jingumae, Tokyo, in 2018. Within the concept of something more than an occurrence of art, there is an ever spinning contemporary coin of tangibility and intangibility, and it is this essence, this universal value held by artworks and artists, which is actively accepted but left behind.
