Tetsuya Maruyama (Yokohama, 1983) is an artist whose interdisciplinary practice includes film, performance, sound, installation and everything between. Maruyama’s work departs from re-contextualization of found banal materials and textures, as a record of his quotidian observations.
His works have been shown at Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, 27th Slavonian Biennial, Hamburg International Short Film Festival, Chicago Underground Film Festival, Istanbul International Experimental Film Festival, Mono no Aware, Bienal de Imagen en Movimiento, Rio de Janeiro Museum of Modern Art, Cinemateca Uruguaya, among others.
His film “The Owl’s Tale”, inspired by the Haitian folktale of the same title, won the best film award at VIII Festival Márgenes(Madrid, Spain) in 2018. Maruyama currently lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he continues to work in its proximity to nature.
