MAYUMI KIMURA

Kimura employs photography and video as vehicles of expression to question the excessive power of the media in contemporary society. More precisely, her work makes a critique of the media's influence on our identity. Her video work often uses images of movie heroines and images of herself that momentarily overlap and separate from each other. In this way the work highlights the acts of performing making oneself perform and observing oneself performing. It also reveals the unstable psychology that underlies these acts.

Born in Kyoto. Mayumi Kimura holds an M.F.A from New York University. She has participated in group shows in the New York Hong Kong Seoul Shanghai UK and Amsterdam. 2008 artist in residence at AIR Antwerpen Belgium.
