Shinji Ohmaki is an artist who explores the theme of "Existence" and the question it poses. In his work, he delves into the external world of environment and others, as well as the internal world of memory and consciousness. His aim is to create a bodily experience that captures the ambiguity of how these worlds interact and move in space and time. Through his exploration of the body, which lies between the boundaries of these worlds, he seeks to convey the complexity of existence.
His main solo exhibitions include Rustle of Existence (Kuandu Museum, Taipei, 2020), MOMENT AND ETERNITY, (Third Floor- Hermès, Singapore, 2012), PROOF OF EXISTENCE (Hakone Open-Air Museum, 2012), and ECHOES-INFINITY (Shiseido Gallery, 2005). He has additionally participated in global group exhibitions, including the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale and the Yokohama Triennale. In recent years, he further explores performance art, such as “Freeplus x HEBE x Shinji Ohmaki”(HKRI Taikoo Hui, Shanghai, 2019), YOKOHAMA DANCE COLLECTION／Ella Rothschild “Futuristic Space”Stage Art, Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, Yokohama, 2019), and Louis Vuitton 2016-17 FW PARIS MEN'S COLLECTION, Paris, 2016).
