Studio Pietà (King Kong Komplex)
Fujiwara's work Studio Pietà (King Kong Komplex) debuted at the Sharjah Biennial in March and will be presented in a newly expanded format at Andrea Rosen.
A young artist who has achieved exceptional recognition and acclaim across Europe and Asia, Fujiwara was born in London, spent his childhood between Japan, England, Spain and Africa and is now based in Berlin. His complex installations incorporate sculpture, performance, video and photographic elements to create fully imagined scenarios that underscore the interdependence of personal history and more universal narratives. Studio Pietà (King Kong Komplex) addresses issues of racial profiling, exoticism, terrorism, and sexual identity, and relations between the West and the Middle East.
