KAN YASUDA The quest for the perfect form


Duration: 4’23

Directed, Filmed, Edited by Martin Hampton

As the first United States exhibition of his monumental sculpture is mounted at Christie’s New York, Yasuda talks about his work as the show is installed.

Classically trained in both Japan and Italy, Kan Yasuda (B. 1945) is one of the pre-eminent contemporary Japanese sculptors. His minimalist, smoothly undulating works in marble and bronze are critically acclaimed in his native Japan and throughout Europe.
