Born 1960 in Japan. Hirakawa is now an internationally known contemporary artist after studying Applied Sociology. He has created numerous works in photography, film, dance, installation and performance. His work has been exhibited over 300 times at museums, art centers, and galleries all over the world including Venice Biennale Aperto, Istanbul Biennale, Site Santa Fe Biennale and Museum fur Modern Kunst, Frankfurt, Center Pompidou, Paris, PS 1 Museum, New York.
Hirakawa’s 2004 piece featured a woman sitting on a chair and reading books while onlookers merely observed. The subject worked her way through a series of novels in the span of about 5 days. Oh, and also she defecated on the floor of the exhibit every morning. We’re not entirely sure what HIrakawa was going for, but we hope that he got his point across. Whatever that point was.
