Ochiai was born in Kanagawa prefecture in 1967. He moved to the United States in 1990 and is currently based in NY. In Japan, in addition to the collections of the National and Public Museums, he has exhibited his works at solo exhibitions at the Watarium Art Museum, group exhibitions at Art Tower Mito and the Hara Museum, and the Yokohama Triennale 2011. His work incorporates a variety of techniques, including drawing and painting, sculpture, video, performance, poetry and writing and printed matter, allowing him to see multiple times and fluid thoughts.

The title of this exhibition is derived from a structure called "Tapetum", which is located in the eyeballs of nocturnal animals and has the function of capturing and reflecting a slight amount of light in the dark. Ochiai creates an expression in his work that collects light from things that humans are not conscious of on a daily basis, such as the "tapetum" that humans do not have, and emits reflected light for a moment.
His series "MO", "Everyone Has Two Places", "ashtray sculpture", "Itinerary, non?", "Chopin, Op.97 (Chopin, 97 minutes)", etc. By combining works of various expressions, we propose a free walk in the chain and disconnection of the things that each work derives.
