In The Periphery Of The Other, Nakamura keeps consistent with the trajectory of questioning uniformity in selected spaces. The focus at present is surveying residential estates in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, specifically those at Subang Jaya. Creating a series from scratch at a distance, equipped with the savvy of virtual resources and relationships, Nakamura touches on how we can investigate the artistic tenets of space-making via looking from the outside in. At the same time, it questions how this inversion gives rise to the re-interpretation of space liberation. Featuring a vast array of colours and mediums, The Periphery Of The Other combines facets of surface, light and social inquiry unto the artist’s trademark illusion of sparse, shared spaces.
