Born in Kyoto in 1974, she lives in Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan. In 2008 she received her master’s degree in Inter-media Art from the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Tokyo University of the Arts. She has attracted attention with works that utilize traces of signs in which the passage of time can be visualized, such as installations that include objects of daily use made from naphthalene or salt, crackling sounds of pottery, and veins of leaves. She was awarded the first Grand Prix of the “Nissan Art Award” in 2013. Her main solo exhibitions include “life,” Mizuma Art Gallery (Tokyo, 2018); “between waxing and waning,” Ohara Museum of Art, Yurinso (Okayama, 2017); “NAKASORA -the reason for eternity-,” The National Museum of Art, Osaka (2012); and others.
