Born in 1976 in Osaka and lives in Australia. She received her doctorate from Kyoto City University of Arts in 2012. She creates installation works juxtaposing fiber arts, which utilize techniques such as weaving, dyeing, tying, and stitching, with photographs, texts and/or sounds. As a third-generation Korean born in Japan, she attempts to shed light on the untold histories and everyday life of women and unnamed individuals. Recently, she has engaged in a project that focuses on sea routes to bring individual stories together into “our” shared memory.
