Simon Fujiwara | TateShots



Simon Fujiwara’s exhibition at Tate St Ives showed him to be a master story-teller, weaving fact and fiction to compelling and powerful effect.

As a child, he lived in Carbis Bay, just a mile from St Ives, and his recent artworks explore his childhood experiences in Cornwall; growing up gay, with an English mother and a Japanese father, in a seaside village. For the exhibition he took over the entire gallery, presenting a series of large-scale installations, many of which integrate works by famous St Ives’ artists, including Alfred Wallis, Patrick Heron and Barbara Hepworth, and blending them with his own family narratives.
