Kosuke Nagata

Kosuke Nagata
Born in Aichi, 1990. Lives and works in Kanagawa.

Locating fundamental components such as social structure, today’s media technology, and our sensory system to perceive various phenomena in his artistic interest, artwork by Kosuke Nagata continues to emerge ambiguity in the process of distinguishing one from another.
He has recently participated in the following major exhibitions “Seeing as though touching: Contemporary Japanese Photography vol.19” TOKYO PHOTOGRAPHIC ART MUSEUM, 2022), “Equilibres” (ANOMALY, 2021), “Eating Body” (Moto-Eigakan, 2021), “Aichi Triennale 2019: Taming Y/Our Passion” (Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art, 2019), “Open Space 2018: in transition” (NTT InterCommunication Center, 2018), and “The Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions 2018: Mapping the Invisible” (TOKYO PHOTOGRAPHIC ART MUSEUM, 2018). The essay titled ‘Photography after Photoshop: Software of the “Photographic Apparatus”’ contributed to the Lev Manovich’s Japanese-translated publication “Instagram and Contemporary Image” (Tokyo: BNN, 2018).
