Lucas Odahara’s practice engages with a variety of media including writing, drawing, glaze painting, moving image, and public installations. His work addresses the impulse of recognition across multiple histories and geographies as a form of composing one’s manifold idea of the self. Historical figures, national identities, language, art history, stories of race and ethnicity, archival material, and queer spaces are some of the places he encounters this friction between identification and disidentification.

His work has been seen at many exhibitions, including: Neue Berliner Kunsverein (n.b.k.), Berlin (2024); David Peter Francis gallery, New York (2024); Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin (2023); TaxisPalais Kunsthalle Tirol, Austria (2023); Kleinplastik Triennial Fellbach (2022); OPENART Biennial, Sweden (2022); Cultural Center of Belgrade (2022); Berlinische Galerie (2021); Bärenzwinger, Berlin (2021); Kunstverein Grafschaft Bentheim (2020); Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Karachi, Pakistan (2019); Schwules Museum, Berlin (2017); Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2016); Weserburg Bremen (2015) and Künstlerhaus Bremen (2015). In 2022 he was awarded with the Berlin Art Prize and he is currently a resident at the Jan van Eyck Academy in the Netherlands.
