Lab 27: Rie Nakajima

Wednesday 20 November 2019, 12-2pm, CM105

Lab 27 is the first of a few additional sessions this year with a shorter morning session from 12-2 with a visiting artist. We are really pleased to have Rie Nakajima with us to show her work with objects as instruments and sculpture, positioning sounds, and making something happen in space with sound.

Rie Nakajima is a Japanese artist working with installations and performances that produce sound. Her works are most often composed in direct response to unique architectural spaces using a combination of kinetic devices and found objects. She has exhibited and performed widely both in the UK and overseas and has produced ‘Sculpture’ with David Toop since 2013. With Keiko Yamamoto she has a music project ‘O YAMA O’ which explores music with no genre. She also has a collaborative project ‘Dead Plants/Living Objects’ with Pierre Berthet. She has had her first major solo exhibition at IKON Gallery in Birmingham in 2018.
