Tazu Rous

The Japanese artist Tazu Rous (aka Tatzu Nishi, Tazro Niscino, Tatzu Oozu and Tatsurou Bashi) creates spatial ‘encounters’ with unusual proportions using iconic objects taken from public space. He transforms lamp-posts, parked cars and monuments into oversized objects in domestic settings. For TRACK in Ghent he is constructing a hotel room setting around the tower of Sint-Pieters Station. About his contribution to TRACK and his complete artistic oeuvre he will engage in a direct conversation with the audience.

Tazu Rous (1960) is born in Nagoya, Japan and lives and works Berlijn, Duitsland and Tokio, Japan.
