TAKAGI Masakatsu

TAKAGI Masakatsu is an artist who engages in creating music using the piano, an instrument which he has long been familiar with, and video works reminiscent of "moving paintings" shot during his travels around the world. Since releasing his album "pia" in 2001, he has presented his work in various concerts and exhibitions internationally. His practice encompasses a wide range of areas, including producing music for the films "Wolf Children," "The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness," "The Boy and the Beast," and "Mirai" as well as commercial music and writing. He is currently engaging in a new style of working such as his latest work "Marginalia" in which he released a collection of songs on piano created through a dialogue with nature.
He has presented work in numerous exhibitions including "The Cosmos of the Takahashi Collection" Contemporary Art Museum Kumamoto (2017), "Ikitoshi Ikeru Mono (All Living Things)" Vangi Sculpture Garden Museum (Shizuoka, 2016), and "DAYDREAMS" Takamatsu City Art Museum (Kagawa, 2013). In 2018 he released his collection of essays, Kotoizu (Kirakusha).
