A man who was born in Aomori, 1978, and now lives in Brussels and Maastricht. Artist. In many of his projects, Okumura Okumura inserts his own life and fantasy in a specific area of recent art history, reactivating it in the present timeframe as a site of uncertainty that develops through ever-changing interpersonal relations, driven by his belief in the essential parallelity of worlds and the ultimate interconnectedness between individuals. Recent “solo” exhibitions include “Hisachika Takahashi by Yuki Okumura (2016 | Maison Hermè Le Forum | Tokyo | Curated by Reiko Setsuda), “Na(me/am)” (2018 | Convent | Ghent | Organized by Jeroen Staes and Wouter De Vleeschouwer) and “29,771 days – 2,094,943 steps” (LA MAISON DE RENDEZ-VOUS | Brussels | Presented by MISAKO & ROSEN).
