Kota Ezawa translates found film, video, and photographic images into drawings and animations that reduce complex imagery to its most essential, two-dimensional elements. Ezawa’s latest body of work re-examines crimes including the infamous art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990. Reflecting on his new body of work he states, “I feel compelled to produce an exhibition dealing with ‘stolen art works’ because my own process could be regarded as a form of image theft. One could say I’m hoping to steal these images back and give them a new life.” SITE Lab 8: The Crime of Art looks at Kota Ezawa’s oeuvre using crime as a topical lens and is published by Radius Books.
