Lucian Moriyama (born Honolulu, 1991) is an artist and writer. He studied at the University of Glasgow and at the École supérieure d'art et de design Marseille-Méditerranée. His installations, publications, and documents are informed by cultural history and draw upon the playfulness, wit, and visionary fantasies of the exotic and the utopian. His work invites us to search for artifice and its lacunae, to reread contemporary objects and ideas, to evoke the limits and ends of reason.


Lucian Moriyama (né Honolulu, 1991) est artiste et écrivain. Il a étudié à l’Université de Glasgow et à l'École supérieure d'art et de design Marseille-Méditerranée. Ses installations, livres d’artiste, et documents puisent leur source dans l’histoire culturelle, et tirent des aspects ludiques, de wit, et des fantaisies visionnaires de l’exotique et l’utopique. On rencontre l’artifice et ses lacunes, la relecture d’objets et d'idées contemporains, évoquant les limites et fins de la raison.
