原田 裕規 Yuki Harada

Yuki Harada

Born in 1989. Artist.
Harada is known to employ motifs and iconography that are widely-recognized yet considered trivial in mainstream Japanese society to shed light on highly controversial social issues. In 2012, he made his debut as a co-organizer of the Lassen Exhibition featuring the Hawaiian artist Christian Riese Lassen. He was an editor and contributor to the 2013 book Essays on Works and Reception of Lassen in Japan (Film Art, Inc.). In 2017, he began developing a project based on ‘shinrei-shashin’ or Japanese ghost photography. Since 2019 onwards, he has been developing a project based in Hawaii.

Major solo exhibitions include One Million Seeings (KEN NAKAHASHI, 2019), Photography Wall (Maruki Gallery for the Hiroshima Panels, 2019), and Shinrei-shashin / New Jersey (Kanzan Gallery, 2018). In 2020, he collaborated with a print magazine Kohkoku Vol.414 (Hakuhodo). After graduating from Musashino Art University in 2013, he completed his MFA in the Department of Inter-media Art in the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Tokyo University of the Arts in 2016. In 2017, he relocated to New Jersey as a fellow of the Program of Overseas Study for Upcoming Artists by the Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs.
