The Marrakech Biennale and beyond
Megumi Matsubara, born 1977, is a Japanese artist whose practice spans from static architecture to ephemeral situations including installation, sound, photography and text. She composes spatial narratives combining the use of diverse media. Through constantly rearranging the existing environments, her works challenge the balance between presence and absence. She lives and works between Morocco and Japan since 2012. Her works in Morocco include "Void/Between", a site-specific installation for Marrakech Biennale 4 (Royal Theatre, 2012), as well as four solo shows: "The Blind Deam" (Douiria Mouassine, 2014), "Walk Straight" (Voice Gallery, 2014), "Rêveurs Rêve Rêves" (La Maison de La Photographie de Marrakech, 2012), "Une Chambre Rouge" (Musée Batha, 6th Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie de Fès, 2012). Her recent work extends to "Seeing Red", a scenography for a contemporary theatre (2014), "Obscure Architecture", an architectural installation at Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (2012), and "House of 33 Years", a house in Nara (2013).
