Artist Bio

Masashi ECHIGO


Born in Toyama, Japan 1982.

Lives and works in Tokyo and Shōdoshima-island (Kagawa).

He has lived and spent lengthy periods of time in numerous cities in the world, participating in collective shows and projects over the past years. Each experience in each place is represented by individual installations that are spatially and emotionally tied to their context. Each installation, even though conceived independently, necessarily enters into a dialogue with the others, constructing a unique narrative landscape that is in the process of evolution, serving as evidence of his voyage.
