'Ine wo Ueru hito' is an artist duo which grew out of a video installation work, ‘ One day I meet…’, that the pair, Tomoko Inagaki and Takuma Uematsu collaborated on in 2007. I.U. is short for "ine wo ueru hito" and incorporates the names of both artists: INAgaki and UEmatsu. It translates as "person who plants rice" The activity of rice-planting is considered to be the begining of cultural development in Asia. Rice has been, from ancient times until today, the staple food of Japan and our culture is centered around rice-planting. I.U. strives to create a new culture centered around creativity and experimental challenges. ■稲を植える人(稲垣智子+植松琢麿) 2009-10 THE GOD OF THE SMALL THINGS (casa Masaccio, Corso/イタリア) 2009   Spooky Action at a Distance (Black and Blue Gallery, Redfern /オーストラリア) One day, I meet… vol.2 (NADiff a/p/a/r/t,東京) One day, I meet… (hpgrp GALLERY東京,東京) 2008   Talk & Exhibition 2008- Video Art Activities(Ox Warehouse/マカオ) Bains Numeriques #3(Centre des Arts Enghien les Bains/フランス) 2007年  I meet...
