Chika Matsuda

artist website.

« I mistook squid in its ink for the moon in the night « is the project that the artist Chika Matsuda (Nagano) has developed during his residency. In the different works that compone the project, as well as in its title, Chika Matsuda goes in play with the relationship between the physical and the abstract features of language. Focusing on how our voice reflects cultural patterns, the artist undertakes an endless research to erode both rationality and naturalness we attach to the use we make of the body to communicate. Tongues, swallowing, mouth noises, uncontrolled saliva and recitations evoke through sculptures, drawing and video , this investigation and a possible alternative grammatical structure to our perception.
