Tadasu TAKAMINE

(Born in Kagoshima, 1968. Lives and works in Akita, Japan)


Tadasu Takamine began his career as a member of the influential Japanese multimedia-performance group Dumb Type, which has been existed since the 1980s.  Currently, he works in diverse media such as installations incorporating video and audio, photography, video, sculpture, and self-directed performances.

Takamine reveals the latent oppression and the control of a social system and collective conscious critically and ironically through his own body. Takamine participated in prominent international art exhibitions including Venice Biennale, Busan Biennale, and Yokohama Triennale. His works also have been the subject of solo exhibitions at prestigious museums such as "Too Far To See", Yokohama Museum of Art, Kanagawa, Japan / Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Hiroshima, Japan / Kirishima Open Air Museum, Kagoshima, Japan / IKON Gallery, Birmingham, UK (2011-2012); "Japan Syndrome - Utrecht Version" CASCO, Utrecht, Netherlands (2013). He was also invited by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) to do a one-year residency in Berlin in 2013.
