KAIR2023 Participated Artists 
Ryo Shimizu

Born in 1977 in Kagawa Prefecture, Ryo SHIMIZU currently lives in Kanagawa Prefecture.
He has great interest in the form of textual characters and the magical elements of how textual characters blend into everyday life and how they affect us unconsciously. While combining diverse forms of expression including textual characters, architecture, voice, videos, collection of items, and changes in thermal environments, he creates works suggesting the possibility of rediscovering connections between everyday experiences and things.
Since 2020, he has mainly been in the Izu Peninsula (Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan) continuously observing, surveying, and photographing the forms of topography and flora and fauna. He works on projects and artworks with the theme of humans before the advent of text characters or the good and bad things brought about by the invention of text characters.

Domestic-Wild is the union of the spanish-french artist Ariane Patout, and the german-swiss designer René Müller, two creators with a remarkable career, currently based in Barcelona.
It was in 2012 when these two professionals gave life to their first best-seller artistic project: WILD CHAIR, recognized with the FAD Architecture Award (2014) and Valldoreix Sculpture Biennial Award (2016). Since then, they have not stopped to create together and fascinate the world with their creations.

It is our passion to keep searching for the essential qualities of places, to interweave them with possible scenarios and options for action and to redesign them with artistic finesse. Maintaining respect for the untouched nature and people using all their senses to perceive the landscape and themselves anew.



Sasha Tamarin

I am fascinated with touristic promises and disappointments, especially when it comes to the attempts to capture targeted photos, eternal landscapes, and patches from desired worlds. I immigrated to Israel when I was 7. Since then, I've always felt like a tourist. My goal is to confront different places and identities, and finally to synthesize a strange, funny, yet familiar reality.
It is essential for me to create a multilayered body of work that slides on the scale between “straight” photographic aesthetics, images of an amplified reality, found footage and cinema.
