Didier Fiuza Faustino is a multidisciplinary artist whose work produces disturbing, disorientating physical situations, disrupting the habitual relationships between the human body, society and architecture. His latest show features at Le Forum, in a building designed by Renzo Piano, at the heart of Tokyo's Ginza quarter.

Didier Fiuza Faustino's projects offer a new definition of architecture, striving to abolish the barriers separating it from the world of contemporary art. In this context, the drawings, sound works, sculptures and installations commissioned by the Foundation for the Tokyo exhibition form a veritable artistic manifesto, taking a critical look at architectural practice as a whole.

This original show is titled Agnosian Fields, in reference to the concept of non-cognitivity. The artist creates an alien space, unidentifiable to the senses, designed to immerse the spectator in an imaginary, sensory architectural environment. This dreamlike, fantasy work transports the viewer to the heart of magnetic fields, brilliantly echoing Faustino's artistic vocation to connect the body, mind and space in architecture.

Didier Fiuza Faustino is also the creator of H Box, a nomadic architectural unit showcasing the Foundation's annual programme of commissioned video works.
