BIOGRAPHY


Born in 1985 in Hokkaido and living in Kyoto, Miyanaga graduated from the Graduate School of Kyoto City University of Arts, receiving Kyoto City Special Bounty Program for Art and Culture in 2011-2012. He is a contemporary video artist who superimposes layers of video images on each other. These images do not create chronological narratives but portray alternative narratives by bringing a non-temporal axis to video images. It is also a search for something non-temporal in a traditionally time based art. He mainly works in video, video installation, photo montage, VJ, and MV director.
He also launched "ViDeOM" as the artist's office, or video and design production for more commercial works in 2015.

Selected Exhibitions: Sapporo International Art Festival 2014(Sapporo Odori 500-m Underground Walkway Gallery, 2014), MOT Annual 2014 Fragments — Incomplete Beginnings(Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, 2014), In the Still of the World(Kodama Gallery, 2014), Phases of Time in Art -with Five Verbs-(The Museum of Modern Art Wakayama, 2013), Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions 2013 PUBULIC DIARY, (Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, 2013).
