Kurashige’s approach to creating artworks, mainly video works, is based on curiosity and interest of the moment towards the object, and is inspired by what he sees and feels in everyday life. In recent years, he participated many exhibitions such as T1 Turin Triennial Three museums: The Pantagruel Syndrome in Italy, Rapt!-contemporary art from Japan, RMIT project space in Australia, and All About Laughter Humor in Contemporary Art at Mori Art Museum in Japan, and expands his field of activity.
