(born 1975) is a British artist. He uses materials and convolutions to affect transformations on found objects, social encounters and urban situations. Fictional scenarios are made real, Fire emerges from storm drains, perfume permeates metal surfaces, and crystals colonise industrial objects, naked youths contemplate fire, a clear plastic object becomes the focus of prayer, a boys choir play dead, a proposal to bury a passenger jet plane. In 2008 he created an installation in South London where he materially claimed an entire ex-council flat, growing within it an industrialized scale of copper sulphate crystals. 75,000 litres of solution were pumped into the council flat to create a crystalline growth on the walls, floor, ceiling and bath of this abandoned dwelling. The project was called Seizure and was produced by Artangel.

" In this piece I gave hermit crabs shelters that I had made for them, and if they liked my shelters, they will take them as their shell. The very first idea of the work was conceived on the occasion of the participation in the "No Man's land" exhibition that has been held in the French Embassy in Japan in 2009. This work is inspired by the fact that the land of the former French Embassy in Japan had been French until October 2009, and become Japanese for the following fifty years, and then be returned to France.The same piece of land is peacefully transferred from one country to the other. These kinds of things take place without our being aware of it. On the other hand, similar events are not unrelated to us as individuals. For example, acquiring nationality, moving, and migration. The hermit crabs wearing the shelters I built for them, which imitate the architecture of various countries, appeared to be crossing various national borders. Though the body of the hermit crab is the same, according to the shell it is wearing, its appearance changes completely. It’s as if they were asking, “Who are you?”" - Aki Inomata
