Mie Iwatsuki interviewed by Noah Becker in ArtVoices

"NB: What got you into collecting art?

Iwatsuki: To live with art. Being surrounded by art is so important to me. It makes your life lively and full of energy. It’s like a shamanistic experience everyday. I need to be involved in curating, philanthropic projects and something that connects me to art, creation, creativity and all sorts of humanity. It is something that I long for and it gives me good energy. We do it online these days, we all want to be connected to people constantly- it’s in our nature, I think. . ."
