Artist Shinpei Takeda takes on FOBIA's in New Installtion at SD Mesa College Art Gallery

BY Leticia Gomez Franco | 29-Mar-2017
Shinpei Takeda's FOBIA is experimental art, guided by audience experience. Takeda has woven a safe space structure inside the gallery and invited attendees to meet with him and divulge their deepest fears, phobias and anxieties, conversations which guided Takeda’s artistic process. Each encounter with an attendee resulted in the production of a physical, tangible visual manifestation of the stories shared. Through layering of images, words, projections, ink, photography, and the literal and metaphorical carving of trauma into wood, Takeda seeks to transmutate fear and memory into art. The completed works will be revealed at the artist reception on April 6 at 4:30pm, to be followed by an artist talk with Takeda.
