    Catalogue de l'exposition "Shimabuku. Man should try to avoid contact with alien life forms" présentée au Centre international d’art et du paysage de l’île de Vassivière (13 novembre 2011 - 6 mai 2012).

    The artist creates videos, performances and installations rooted in everyday life and which are operating complex relationships between the notions of artist, work and audience. Shimabuku feeds his work from little stories that he heard here and there during his numerous trips. Those stories, through performances and the setting up of actions are staged with friends, unknown people, animals or even legendary characters in a universe of dream, magic, poetry and humour. A world where the detail, the sound of the words, the origin of the names are convoked to weave together a totally unique environment.

    In Aldo Rossi’s building, the exhibition becomes a playful experience opened to all. In a spirit that is not unlike Fluxus’ Robert Filliou and his do-it-yourself works, Shimabuku raises questions that are related to timeless popular wisdom or even zen philosophy.

    Apart from it’s playful and welcoming aspect, Shimabuku’s exhibition is clearly dedicated toward landscape as the result of a poetic observation of nature which is the place for many small lessons about life.
