Chika Matsuda, 2011-2012

Chika Matsuda works with sculpture, video, and installation, and often uses found objects and materials. Matsuda’s art practice contemplates the way we live our daily lives, our perception of life, and how we consume and reproduce resources. Her work investigates the relationship between the rational and irrational, and how perception and experience are influenced by language, cultural context, and histories.

Matsuda was born and raised in Japan. She moved to New Zealand in 2001 and received her B.A in 2006 from Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology. She then moved to the United States and received her MFA degree from the University of Arizona in 2010. Her work has been exhibited in New Zealand, Japan, Bulgaria, and the United States. Matsuda received the 2008 International Sculpture Center Outstanding Students Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award, and 1st place in the Southwest graduate student competition, Crossing 2009. She also received an Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences Graduate Fellowship to the University of Arizona.

“Our existence today is a continuation of our endless history. The sound we hear today is a reverberation of the past, and the sound we make today echoes to the past. The words come out from our mouth are the words said before us. I am working on a series that involves video, sculpture, and drawing to demonstrate sound as an eternal vibration and of the mortality within our human condition.”
