    French-Japanese visual artist, born 1976, based in Vienna, Austria.
    After a decade in the advertising and movie industry, she decided to turn exclusively to the visual art.
    She studied at the academy of fine arts Vienna (Peter Kogler and Matthias Herrmann classes) and has worked since 2009 as a visual artist, photographer and curator.
    In Summer 2020 she started her art space feministic project SPACE2O.



    Her works are very divers, oscillating between art photography and commercial work, portraits and landscapes. What all of them share is a clean aesthetic and minimalistic composition (..). Asked about her intriguing portraits, the artist says she tries to capture the very moment, where a person reveals her or himself. Her photographs grasp the essence of her subjects, showing their strength and fragility at the same time. 

    Sophie Haslinger, curator
