Susumu Shingu

Nagasaki Museum of Art, Japan

The exhibition at Nagasaki Museum gather latest works presenting the current concerns of Susumu Shingu, dedicated since the mid 1960’s to create kinetic sculptures, representing the shapes and movements of the wind. His works reveal an awareness of the secret rhythms of the planet and its harmonies. The artist gives life to works laden with the power to inspire the viewer in new and unexpected ways.

Painter, sculptor, researcher and philosopher of nature, Susumu Shingu emphasizes in his works that we no longer see when we observe nature. He creates sculptures that work with the energies of nature and that use elements like air, water, light and sound. Capturing every breath of life, they delicately interpret changing landscapes.
