A Turn to a New Nature: The Subversion of the Artificial in the Work of Kenji Nakama

Producción científica: Contribución a una revistaArtículorevisión exhaustiva


This paper analyses five periods in the work of Peruvian artist Kenji Nakama: his early stage as a Neoimpressionist painter of noise; his work with electronic devices to capture TV signals; his incursion in collage to create topological systems; his approach to volume by the use of simulations of organisms and ecosystems; and the use of matter as an animated being that must reveal its ontology to the public. All the pieces have conceptual and formal features that grant them consistency, coherency, and logic. On the one hand, the need to raise awareness about the excess of information and the way media influence us; on the other hand, the use of strata and structures as mechanisms to organise said noise/chaos/surplus to turnto a primal state: a new nature.
