Kenichiro Taniguchi

Kenichiro Taniguchi, Sapporo (Japan) 1976

Period of residence: March 2014

The sculptor Kenichiro Taniguchi bases each of his works on various individual “Hecomi”. A “Heacomi” is Japanese, meaning a peeled spot, dent, depression, crack etc. Taniguchi searches out and meticulously traces these dents and broken parts of roads or wall surfaces.

His collection of cracks and dents is a collection of visual disturbances of the system of which our urban surroundings are made of. These shapes and patterns are flaws that most people either want to erase or try to ignore. But instead of ignoring them, Taniguchi transforms them into beautiful, lively sculptures. Through the work of Taniguchi, they are no longer mere interruptions of a larger structure, but a structure in themselves worthy of identity and character. (Magnus BJerk)
