    Nobuko Tsuchiya was born in 1972 in Yokohama, Japan. She lives and works in London. Her work is composed of free assemblages of familiar objects and scrap materials. In the artist’s hands, these take on an entirely different aspect and role, far removed from their original purpose. They could appear as in- progress experiments, or broken-down old vehicles, provoking a mysterious nostalgia and a strange familiarity which appeals to memories, feelings and sensations of universal concern. Although Tsuchiya does not provide any clarification as to the meaning or intent of her works, their unique titles always point to fragments of her perspective and special narratives. The Japanese term “SANPO” means strolling or walking around leisurely with or without purpose. Revelling in the special hue and texture of a sound, the artist dares to introduce subtle differences in translation.
