Noritaka Tatehana

PROFILE

Noritaka Tatehana

Artistic expression is equal to communication for Noritaka Tatehana. His wide range of practices embodies the artist himself changing in relation to time. His major work, Heelless Shoes, was created by combining culture cultivated in the soil of Japanese tradition and that of westernized Japanese culture. His work may look eccentric, yet it is in fact the latest point within the lineage of Japanese tradition, and has been acclaimed globally as something to be preserved for the future.
Noritaka Tatehana was born in 1985 in Tokyo. He lives and works in Tokyo. He graduated from the Department of Crafts, Textile Arts, at Tokyo University of the Arts in 2010. He has presented work at “Image-Makers” (21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, 2010), “Future Beauty” (the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, toured internationally, 2012), and a solo exhibition “Aesthetic of Magic” (The Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum, Japan, 2016) amongst others. He also presents a wide variety of practice beyond the boundaries of art, fashion, and design, one notable example being a bunraku performance at the Cartier Foundation in Paris in March 2016. His work is included in the collections of institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
