[Born in: Japan / Live in: Germany / Female]

She is a fine artist creating transdisciplinary works. She was born in Hiroshima, Japan and lives and works in Berlin, Germany. She is an artist member of GEDOK ( and Berlinerpool ( in Germany.

She transforms autobiographical experiences and motives from her social environment into an artistic context and creates projects with different media.
Her works comprise a spectrum of both themes and media that spans from sculpture and photography by way of video and performance art all the way to mixed-media installations. Among these works, one of the most prominent is the serial project “still/silent” that is documented here for the period from 2007 through 2010. By structurally inscribing her work with a re-contextualization of space-times and media, she has it refer and point to the potentiality of the identity creating function of remembering. The spatial transfer that is programmatically expressed in the choice of diverging venues of performance, thus intuitively becomes the transformation in the sense of the experiment in medium and memory.
