ISHII Jun` Ichiro

I began my art studies in interior design and fine art, the basics of paintings. Over time, as I gained personal social-cultural experiences, my focus has slowly shifted from paintings to more complex creative activities. After undertaking several projects in Japan, I moved to South Korea in order to discover a different culture and to increase my cultural awareness. After two years of artistic experience in Seoul, I am now living in Paris, France. Based on a site-specific point of view, I am extremely interested in observing the bare cultural aspects. To precisely pursue my pure impression of the site, I do not have a predetermined method, but adds a symbolic form to the cultural peculiarities I experiences and represents them as a site-specific art piece. To cover the temporality of the site-specific works, I employ the art of video. Not only for archival purposes, but also as independent works of art providing different perspectives and angles of the physical work itself.
