澤田 将哉



Born in Tokyo in 1986, and Sawada lives now in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. After completing his doctorate at the Tama Art University Graduate Program, Sawada has been engaged in educational activities, including human resources training at universities and art museums, programs for the general public, and more.
In his artwork as a blacksmith and sculptor, Sawada calls his recent series “air.” Since 2017, this series has been his means of investigating ways of measuring relationships between humans and artworks. Since his childhood, Sawada has been intrigued with taking apart broken machinery and considering how parts fit and work together. Likewise, “air” seeks to explore and explicate the “spaces” or “gaps” between people and works of art. The recording within his own works linking mechanisms he has uncovered Sawada views as an extension of his own daily routines, acts along lines projecting from his daily actions. Another focus is the iron the artist uses in his works. In the iron production process, a black layer of oxidation forms and covers the iron. This oxide film becomes a partition that divides the iron from its ambient air. The existence of iron, visually heavy and massive, with its latent sense of resistance, can at times serve as a “ruler” to measure space—Sawada’s works show us then what the iron itself inherently displays.
