Everything is Everything

Everything is Everything by Japanese artist Koki Tanaka explores new ideas by interacting with everyday objects in playful ways. Using what they gathered around Taipei, Tanaka and his assistants, Teppei Sotome and Hideki Aoyama, turn ordinary objects into imaginative props. For example, they spin a broom rather than sweep the floor, spray water bottles at each other, and throw a trash can down a flight of stairs.

This short film prompts us to use our imagination in unconventional and unexpected ways. Tanaka’s re-imagined use of everyday objects is what will get your family’s creativity flowing!

About the Director

Koki Tanaka is a visual artist whose diverse practice spans video, photography, site-specific installations, and interventions, by visualizing and revealing multiple contexts latent in everyday acts and objects. In his early object-oriented works, Tanaka experimented with ordinary objects to explore ways of offering a possible escape from everyday routine.

Tanaka has shown widely including at the Palais de Tokyo (Paris), the Kunsthaus (Graz and Zurich), the Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), the ICA (London), the Mori Art Museum (Tokyo), Skulptur Projekte Münster 2017, and the 57th Venice Biennale 2017. He received a special mention for his participation in the Japanese national pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale (2013), and the Deutsche Bank Artist of the Year award (2015).
