Mineki Murata is an artist based in Maebashi, Gunma, Japan, and continues to participate in international exhibitions and art festivals in Taiwan, Germany, Singapore, Ireland and France since 2007. His work covers a diverse range of expression including installation, paintings, drawings, videos or digital images, as well as conducts workshops. The subject matters or the approaches taken in those works originally derived from his performance works. His art practice consisted with two parts: Guerilla performance which make an impact on the viewers by presenting the un-verbalized physical sensation through the overuse of his own body and muscles, and the installations created as the results of those performances. By involving himself with various elements found in a place for many hours, his act metamorphoses the quality of its space. Murata is a member of Tokyo based art collective, called Ongoing Collective that participate and organize local and international exhibitions, symposiums, residency programs and other art related events. Ongoing Collective’s aim is to form a flexible and free thinking, organic organization, connected through interpersonal relationships, not by mechanistic functions or formal regulations.
