Risa Tsunegi graduated in 2006 from Chelsea College of Art, London, and completed a Masters of Fine Art from The Glasgow School of Art, 2009. Tsunegi was awarded Glasgow Sculpture Studio MFA fellowship followed by her solo exhibition, not from concentrate, 2010. Her recent shows includes Terribilis Tubus, Flux Factory, New York; Which Wields, Project Room, Glasgow; RAW in a restless point, MOIN Creative Space, Seoul.
Tsunegi’s work explores the relation between 2D and 3D, along with her concerns in materials – surface, colors and the tactility. She is fascinated by the aspects of duality in architecture, such as structural engineering that should be obvious from the building itself, but at the same time seems invisible due to lack of information and knowledge.
