Takuma Uematsu

In his sculptures, installations and photos, Takuma Uematsu from Japan poses the question of evolution and reincarnation through the mutual interference of all living beings and their environment. For him, the results (e.g. composite creatures) are neither malformations nor final states but a liminality between them and a new life form that is in a constant metamorphosis.
