Faris Nakamura

Born in Singapore, 1988, Faris Nakamura graduated with bachelor’s in fine arts (First Class Honours) from LASALLE College of the Arts in partnership with Goldsmiths, University of London in 2014.


Through sculptures, installations and site-specific works, Faris investigates the way people navigate and orientate themselves as they encounter space. He desires to understand the attachment and detachments people have towards spaces, how these relationships develop, and their impact.

He has showcased at venues such as Gillman Barracks (Singapore), The Substation (Singapore), ION Art (Singapore), Scotts Square (Singapore), Georgetown Festival (Penang, Malaysia), Ku Bar (Bangkok, Thailand), FASS Art Gallery (Turkey), Kobe Biennale (Japan), and Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi (Venice).
