The Japanese artist Atzu Taturo is also known under the aliases Tatzu Nishi, Tazu Rous, Tazro Niscino, Tatzu Oozu and Tatsurou Bashi. His spectacular projects attest to a long-standing fascination for contradictions that touch on each other. Temporary settings which transform public (historical) monuments and evoke the intimacy of living spaces, are characteristic of Atzu's work. By conceiving alienation on such a large-scale, Atzu questions the relationship between society and individual. His art examines the personal relationships of ordinary people to grand narratives in history.
