Yasuhiko Ando

A contemporary artist born in Shiga Prefecture in 1953. As part of the art unit “KOSUGI+ANDO,” Ando has been creating installations that feature adaptations of well-known stories since 1983. Since the 90s, he has assimilated computer-controlled images and objects into his artwork; through these works, he ponders the influence that technology exerts on our lives. In addition to this, he has also worked as the director for “SKIN DIVE – Open the Circuit to the Senses” (Kyoto Art Center, 1999) and the Gifu Ogaki Biennale 2013-2015.
