This event has ended.

It has been three years since Iwai’s previous solo exhibition at TSCA, “Perspective of Familiarity.” “Control Diaries” focuses primarily on video installation, along with paintings and a series of 80 photographs that serve as a private record of decontamination in which the artist took part.

Masaru Iwai was born in Kyoto in 1975. He received his Ph.D. in Fine Arts at Tokyo University of the Arts in 2009. Iwai produces works in various media, with a particular focus on video but also installation and performance, centered on the concept of cleansing (washing and purifying).

Currently, Iwai’s participatory artwork “Broom Stars” is being featured in Yokohama Triennale 2020 Afterglow, ongoing until October 11. The work includes online discussions with participants as well as acts of cleaning. In addition, Iwai is also participating in group exhibition Identity XVI – My Home? – curated by Kenichi Kondo, curator of the Mori Art Museum, on view at nichido contemporary art until September 26.
