Rieko Tsuji

Born in 1991 in Tokyo, she received her BFA from photography and contemporary art course of Kyoto University of Art and Design in Japan. She also studied video and sound art at Zurich university of Arts in Switzerland through an exchange program.
Since her interest is capturing a moment, she uses material which does not remain as a form such as sounds, smell, temporary sculpture and performance. Her artwork is mostly based on non-famous narratives like her personal history and local stories of a small town and she tries to make them sharable with audience.
She currently studies at Bauhaus University Weimar as an exchange student and belong to the Global Art Practice MFA program, at Tokyo University of the Arts.
