Nobuko Tsuchiya (b. 1972, Yokohama, Japan) lives and works in Japan. Tsuchiya studied art at the Accademia di Belle Arte in Florence and Goldsmiths, University of London. She is known for making sculptures out of found scraps of household objects such as antennae, rags, plastic tubing, and an old pair of shoes. Her works have been shown at the Saatchi Gallery (London), the Venice Biennale, the Busan Biennale, and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo (Turin), and La Maison Rouge (Paris).
Tsuchiya was in residence at Leeds Art Gallery for a month prior to Yorkshire Sculpture International and her resulting new works were showcased at the gallery throughout the festival. She came over from Japan to talk about her work and what she had planned for Yorkshire Sculpture International with Sarah Brown, Principal Keeper at Leeds Art Gallery.
