Oyama Enrico Isamu Letter has joined our artist production studio program where he will develop a new room-swallowing mural and sound installation entitled Aeromural.

Oyama Enrico Isamu Letter is an artist born in Tokyo, 1983, to an Italian father and a Japanese mother. “Quick Turn Structure” is the recurrent motif of his work including painting, installation and mural. Based on his unique perspective across contemporary art and street art, his practice also expands to writing critical texts, participating symposia and commission works such as one for COMME des GARÇONS in Paris Collection 2011.

The first half of the residency includes the creation of a mural inside of the residency studio while microphones record the sounds of the aerosol sprays. These audio files will be used for the second half of the residency. After the room is painted white again and restored to its original condition it will be turned into a sound installation piece. Many small speakers will reproduce the previously recorded sounds of the painting process and therefore serve as a reminder of the mural that has been created producing these sounds but is already long gone.

The Clocktower Gallery projects of Oyama Enrico Isamu Letter are made possible by a grant from the POLA ART FOUNDATION, Japan.
