Arakawa’s work takes shape as choreographed gatherings, along the lines of Happenings, in which the artist interacts with and reinterprets particular art objects or art historical moments. Often working with other artists, curators, and art historians Arakawa’s performances rely on both an openness to collaboration and audience participation. Arakawa aligns his work with the performative legacies of Japanese experimental art, such as Gutai, Jikken Kobo, and Fluxus, which he explores anew through his interpretive practice.
