1946年京都生まれ、ドイツ・デュッセルドルフ在住。自らの作品を「(もの)を置くことによって作られる空間」として、その見え方を追求し、多様な素材をもちいた「台座」彫刻の制作を続けている。空間そのものを作品とみなすことで、展示そのものや鑑賞体験それ自体を視覚的に表現し、ミニマルな作品に多重的な見え方の構造を存在させている。京都芸術大学で彫刻を学んだ後にドイツに留学、1979年にデュッセルドルフ美術アカデミーを卒業。1986年にコンラートフィッシャーで個展を開催。1992年にヤン・フート企画によるドクメンタ9への参加によって国際的な注目を浴び、1997年にシュツットガルトやヴェストファーレンのクンストフェラインで開催した大規模な個展を開催した。以来、ドイツを拠点に活動を続けながら数多くの展覧会が開催されている。1995年から2013年にかけてはブレーメン芸術大学で教鞭を執った。

Born and raised in Kyoto, Japan, Yuji Takeoka studied sculpture at Kyoto University of the Arts, and graduated from Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in 1979. Here he had unique access to contemporary sculpture and started combining its tradition with his native Japan’s.
The artist held his first solo exhibition at Konrad Fischer Gallery in Düsseldorf in 1986. In Japan, the first solo exhibition was held at Wako Works of Art in Tokyo in 1992. He was featured in the 1992 documenta IX at Kassel. From the 1980’s on, Takeoka has maintained an interest in forms relating to contemporary ways of exhibiting art. Pedestals, vitrines, and frames are repeatedly present in the oeuvre of Takeoka. They are relieved from their usual function and appear highly aestheticized in his work. Yuji Takeoka worked as a Professor at University of Arts, Bremen (Germany) from 1995 until 2013. He lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany. Takeoka’s works are featured in international art collections such as Daimler AG, Deutsche Bank, Museum DKM, S.M.A.K Gent, Chiba City Museum, The Museum of Modern Art Saitama, National Museum of Art Osaka, Sammlung Niedersächsische Sparkassenstiftung and many more.
