Yuko Kinouchi is a visual artist based in Tokyo. She uses painting, video, performing and installation as a fiction or a document of experimental action through sociological and local environment research. She graduated from Tama Art University in Tokyo. Her works explore and study ways of building a relationship between action and place, and at the same time, experimenting to see if the action makes sense in our society. She extracts structures from what she observes in each area, and rebuilds them as fiction or adds performances to make small changes to study how the circumstances surrounding our lives influence us.

Statement

My work focuses on the difference between individual lifestyle shaped by recognition for society and social structure. Often questioning a context by replacing to another background, I explore and study ways of building a relationship between action and place, experimenting to see if the action makes sense in our society.
I use painting, video, performing and installation as a fiction or a document of experimental action through sociological and local environment research.
At the same time, by my interest in the science surrounding our daily life such as electricity, fire, and salt, I experiment with what happens by different use from the daily way.
Through these practices, extracts structure from what she observes in each area, and rebuilds them as fiction or adds performances to make small changes to study how the circumstances surrounding our lives influence us.

個人の生活や社会への認識と社会構造との差異を軸に、最近は主に映像と身体行為、場所の関係を探る実験を行っている。
メディアとして絵画、映像、パフォーマンス、インスタレーションを使し、例えば、日常の行為を異なるバックグラウンドに置き換えることで文脈をずらし、社会の中で意味を持つ行為か否かを試したり、電気や火、塩など日常的な科学・化学の非日常的な使用方法によるものの変化に焦点を当てる実験をする。
また、それぞれの場所を社会学的な視点で観察して構造を抽出し、フィクションとして組み換えたり、パフォーマンスを加えるなど小さな変化を与えることにより、私たちを取り巻く環境がどう私たちの生活に影響するかを考察する。
