Throughout June 2012, Yukihiro Taguchi was in residence in Loughborough, developing a series of humorous and thought-provoking installations called Skip, constructed from everyday materials and made in response to the immediate environment. The installations created were captured in thousands of photographs which were combined to create a stop frame animation which was shown on the big screen in the Loughborough Market Place, in situ during the Olympic Games.

Yukihiro Taguchi produces performative installations that combine elements of drawing, performance and animation, creating temporary interventions that change the view of familiar situations or environments.
